Did These Two Covers Sell Books Today?

Yes they did.  I picked them both up.  Loved the girl hunting dragons with a shotgun.  That's just pure moxie.  And the Victorian lamp in the background of the second captured my attention.  I'll be reviewing them soon.

An Oxymoron!

Today while researching a current book, I came across a website on Amish dress.  Since they don't use electricity, I'm sure the site isn't aimed at them.

Go to here.

It's Batgirl Like You've Never Seen Her!

If you haven't picked up the new Batgirl series, you should.  Bryan Q. Miller has a fun grasp of the character, and the art is fantastic.  Things have changed in the Bat-universe, and Stephanie Brown (Batgirl) is one of the best.

Check out my review of the latest comic here.

Sometimes you just have to be in my house to get it, but here goes.  My 12 year old has Aspergers and is wildly imaginative.  He loves fantasy, videogames, movies, and books.  My wife is a fourth grade teacher and absolutely rooted in bedrock.

Today he's been playing one of the Lord of the Rings games.  He took time out for The Two Towers this afternoon.

So he's sitting around playing the game again, and he asks his mom, "How often do you think about what it would be like to live in Middle-Earth?"

I sat quietly in my office, working, and just laughed.

Young Readers WIll Love This One!

Looking for a Christmas gift for a young reader, look no further.  And it's a book you can enjoy too.  Especially if you like to read aloud.
