Currently Reading: House of M
It’s an 8 issue trade about a world that becomes altered to have mutants and heroes are the human standard. I have yet to read more than the back cover but my buddy who lent it to me told me about it and it seems like it’s gonna be ill.

Just Finished: Marvel 1602: New World / Fantastick Four
I’ve read all the Marvel 1602 trades now. They’re just so rad. I love how they translated everything into that era. My favourite is probably still the one with Sir Nicolas Fury and Peter Parquagh (aka Spiderman) while they travel to the new world. I would seriously recommend checking any of the 1602 series out.

Currently Reading: Almost Dead by Assaf Gavron
I’m only about a chapter in but it’s really interesting. It is about a guy who keeps surviving suicide bombings and the whole first bit is going on about how irrationally suspicious we can be.

PLZ RECOMMEND ME MOAR BOOKS
I like all those type authors if you know any of them, I’ve also read a bunch of puhlaniuk and some random other stuff. I don’t really know where to expand my selection. I usually read the book of a movie I really liked and then read other stuff of the author.

Just Read: Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern
This book was hilarious. One of the most consistently funny books I’ve read in a long time. It’s not long, maybe 180 pages, so I finished it off in about 3 hours. It’s a really good book full of stories about a man who just says what’s on his mind and treats everyone the same. It’s got some of the best quotes and one liners. Aside from being funny it shows the relationship of parent and child, but from both perspectives at the same time. Not that that description makes much sense, but it’s the best I can do. Definitely a great read, it’d be perfect for a long ass car or bus ride if any of you need something to read on a car or bus ride.

Currently Reading: Catcher: How the Man Behind the Plate Became an American Folk Hero
I love baseball, and I love baseball books. So this already appeals to me, especially because it’s a history book. I’m only about 20 pages in and so far I love it. It’s just amazing, and Peter Morris’ writing style is something special. I don’t know the proper word to describe it, but the way he’s got everything put together flows so well. To anyone who likes baseball, you will love this book.
Currently Reading: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
I asked for it for Christmas this year for a few reasons.
1) It is supposed to be a classic, so I figure hey why not?
2) I never had to read it for school as a kid but I know a lot of people did, so there must be something to it.
3) Shoeless Joe is one of my favourite books. It’s by W. P. Kinsella who I wouldn’t call a favourite author, but I do find his books whimsical and fascinating. Back to the point. Shoeless Joe is what the movie “Field of Dreams” is based upon. In the book the author played by James Earl Jones is supposed to be J.D. Salinger whereas in the movie it is a fictional author Terrence Mann. So yeah, because he was in the book I wanted to read his book.
