Gotta Post...

So i am posting. I feel like i need to do something more substantial than just a placeholder but unless inspiration strikes in the next 4 hours i'll just do this.

Here's what i've got from my library right now.
  • The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox- I've got the second book in the series as an ERC so i'm trying to get this one done.
  • The End of Food by Paul Roberts- I'll get to this for the Science Book challenge.
  • Birth of a Nation by Aaron McGruder and Reginald Hudlin- Graphic novel.
  • The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule by Thomas Frank- A very sad book i'll probably finish up tonight. A bunch of things i hope Obama's administration can help correct.
  • Dreams Made Flesh by Anne Bishop- A continuation of the Dark Jewels Trilogy
  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill-Graphic Novel, i'm about finished with it as well.
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman- not sure what this is about....;)
I've got another 12 books working their way to me through the hold maze. Four are actually about conservatives or Bush and i don't know if i can take them. Two, The Age of American Unreason and Nixonland are a bit more general but the Scott McClellan book and Dark side : the inside story of how the war on terror turned into a war on American ideals by Jane Mayer are directly about Bush so i don't know if i'll even get them. In a way I'm so hopeful for the future i don't want to bring myself down. But on the other hand i feel like i should read them to understand more about what, well, happened. Maybe I'll split the difference and just pick up 2 of them.

  1. Ted at Bookwookey just put up an interesting review of The Meaning of the Night.

    I don't normally try to steer people towards other people's blogs, but the book sounds very interesting.

  2. Sooo many good books that I want to get my hands on. I'm especially interested in The Age of American Unreason. I really need to interlibrary loan that one.
