Just got a bunch of comics from my store back in Athens.
Ultimate spider-Man- they handled the Clone Saga MUCH better than the original debacle. Yikes, that was horrific.
Walking Dead- I love this book, no question about it.
Astonishing X-Men- i'm up to about, issue, 18 or so, and frankly, i'm gettin' confused and bored. If it doesn't pick up soon, i'm dropping it.
Ult. X-Men- Battle with Cable was pretty intense and we'll have to wait and see if _____________ is really dead or not. I doubt it.
Still gotta read the Planet Hulk issues!
"Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, 'Did I tell you about the immune system?' Suzanne starting laughing, I said, 'it's amazing.' She said, 'Not now.'"
Besides my regular comics, i just finished up the Smallville novel "Shadows". After a trip to the local bookstore today I got the next installment called "Sparks", and a Superman and JLA novel.

I recently finished The Tao of War along with a book on wine and also a reread of The Art of War (a strange mix I know).
I've not read them yet, but I recently picked them up, along with Military Methods of the Art of War.
B&N exclusive bargain books perchance, JJB2?
Tommy, close your eyes.
I'll also let it be known that I picked up an Art of War quote a day type calender for 2007.... yeah I like military history.
Picked up Allegiance and Darth Bane last night....used two 30% off coupons so got each one for around 18 bucks.
You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!
Ugh. Let me repeat that, in a larger font, in bold, adding an appropriate smiley. Ugh.
I just finished Vineland, by Thomas Pynch............. Sorry, I must've fallen asleep again. I may need to dig up the older thread here about books read that I didn't like, 'cause this'n has gots to be there. Ugh. Dull, uninteresting, purposely dense and multi-layered, with weak social commentary. Terrible.
Am starting a "prequel" to Romeo and Juliet, by a young adult author. So far, not bad. BTW, The Art of War is somewhere on my list to get to, as well.
CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(
I picked Art of War up at a used bookstore several years ago, and was surprised by how short it was. It was a thin paperback, and most was intro and afterward about Mao Zedong (or Tse-Tung, as he still spelled his name then). I think the actual Art of War was like 20 pages long.
I recently realized that, though it tries to pass itself off as complete, this was far from the complete work, and picked it up along with The Tao of War and Military Methods of the Art of War at a B&N sale a few weeks ago. Still looking for The Japanese Art of War to round out the collection, but I'm not in a major hurry.
Tommy, close your eyes.
