Couple of Updates

I've recently started Goblet of Fire on audio. I've read the book before (was actually working in a major bookstore when it was released - that was fun!) but I've started from the beginning so I can catch up on all that I missed before reading the last one.

I've also been enjoying The Blade Itself (by Joe Abercrombie, not Marcus Sakey). But I'll keep you waiting for my review when I'm done.

As many of my readers know, I like comics. How do my readers know this? Because they're the ones drawing them. We have Paul's daily comic and Kelly's daily comic that I enjoy during the week. I also enjoy the Prometheus comic three times a week.

But, I'd also like to give a shout out to a weekly comic that I learned about from Lynn Johnston (of For Better of For Worse fame): Rabbit and Bear Paws.

And that's about it for now.

Did you check out the Paul's link to WE THE ROBOTS? Funny stuff there, too.

Yeah, nothing but rain yesterday. But it's sunny today, woo-hoo!

Yeah, Paul and I tend to operate on the same channel for some reason. I'll keep an eye on the Robots to see if they work out.

Huh, and now YOU have introduced me to Rabbit and Bear Paws. Pretty neat, good artwork and coloring.

Also, looking forward to your thoughts on The Blade Itself. I liked it very much, and have an ARC of the second book on my desk waiting for my dirty fingers to crack it open. Fast-paced fantasy action. Mmm.

So far I'm liking it. Not an insane amount, but it's surprising who I like the best. And I love the British spelling of things (like colour).

Hey! Thanks for the link :)

We The Robots is pretty great. And now I'm going to check out Rabbit & Bear Paws.

You guys should also check out High Maintenance Machine - it's awesome, one of my favorite daily reads.

Hmm, had a couple of funny ones. I'll file him under "probation" in my reader for now until we see how he works out.
