I don't read comic books. I am not into the current zombie-craze. Then why on earth am I reading a comic book series about a zombie invasion of apocalyptic proportions? I actually heard about this one on the local news, as AMC recently announced the development of the story the television series. As it turns out, the creator/author of this series is from my town. Not only that, but the book starts here as well. One would think it would be very easy to find this series at the local library, no? Actually, no. My local library does not carry it. (This could lead me into a long rant about the atrocities of this particular library...how you're made to feel like you're being a huge bother if you dare disturb the librarian at the front desk to check out a book. Or how an author with multiple books of a similar nature is scattered throughout a variety of sections. Or how it's more "video rental" than actual library. But I shall save that rant for another day.) One library in the surrounding area has the volumes (the volumes are released six issues at a time). Mike and I tore through the first five volumes, and are
Oh yes, this list includes non-fiction. Historical non-fiction, at that. Goodness knows we have a lot of that sitting around the house, what with Mike being an awesome history teacher and all. I guess it was inevitable that I would eventually break down and read something of his. Is it bad to admit that tv made me want to read this? We've been watching The Tudors recently, and I'm finding the history all soap opera-y and fascinating. And The Six Wives of Henry VIII is a surprisingly interesting read. My reading of it has been kind of scattered -- I'm skipping around and not reading cover-to-cover, but I think that's okay. By the way, Jonathan Rhys Meyers looks nothing like 300 lb. Henry. Just saying. :)
I'd love to know what you're reading. With summer break just around the corner, I'm in need of some recommendations.
