Just finished Cursed in Cairo (no one else has read it yet?!) Have a big list of stuff to read. Not sure what next. Maybe the board will help me decide? I was gonna read Camus' The Fall but maybe I'll hold off to make some content on the board. Someone pick what I read next!

Steinbeck In Dubious Battle
Greene The Lawless Roads
Salinger Franny and Zooey or Raise High The Roofbeam, Carpenters
Bradbury The Martian Chronicles or The Sound of Thunder
Morrison Beloved
Dostoyevsky The Idiot


as for comics, lately I've been reading Motor Crush, Mighty Thor, Mosaic, Spell on Wheels, Flash, Wonder Woman, Ms. Marvel, Sex Criminals, and Black Panther.


What about you Eugene?

i'm dumb as shit and i can't make myself read as often as i think i should sometimes but i've been working my way through a bunch of books on film for the past year or so. the main one is tim lucas' epic biography of mario bava. in between trying to force books into my face i read a lot of comics, i really enjoyed the image comics run of "Prophet" and i highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of science fiction or fantasy (it's kind of like Heavy Metal)
ask me about my high score

I'm working on Tana French's In the Woods right now. I haven't been reading as much since I took up cross stitch and have been doing stitch work on my commute to work pretty regularly instead of reading. I've still read a decent chunk of books this year, though.

My favorites so far have been Jillian Tamaki's Supermutant Magic Academy, M.R. Carey's The Girl with All the Gifts, Lisa Hanawalt's Hot Dog Taste Test, and Isabel Quintero's Gabi, A Girl in Pieces. I also read American Gods and really liked it. It's the first Neil Gaiman book I've read, but I'll definitely be reading more of them.
