Sunday Post #58
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
This week has been quiet and mostly uneventful. I've been traveling for work so I haven't been around much on the blog, but I have finished a few books and have reviews coming. I have a few Bookstore Spotlights coming up in the next few weeks as well. Labor Day weekend is coming up and we don't have any plans yet, although the Michigan Renaissance Festival is calling us. I guess it's a toss up between that or a last trip to the beach.
Gen Con broke attendance records this year- over 50,000 people attended, and by all accounts the place was jam packed. As I mentioned last week, I didn't attend this year but will definitely be there next year. I have some links below with pics.
I know COYER is winding down but I have a few reviews coming soon that I'm going to sneak in at the last minute.
Of Dragons and Hearts reviews The Falconer. Also she has a nice post on hiking in Slovenia- with great pics. Check it out!
io9 looks at the Coolest Games, Art and Cosplay of GenCon
Cosplay seems to be much bigger at GenCon these days- not a bad thing! Here's a gallery of pics
Daily Cosplay this week- I don't know who she is supposed to be, The Flash, and I don't really know what to even say about this one! Also a pic from GenCon and some cool lightning shots.
And lastly (on GenCon), Geekdad has a Best of GenCon post- w/ pics! And I love the shirt- about halfway down the post. You'll see what I mean. Also a great post here about what makes GenCon unique.
Bronze Age Babies had a great post this week on the Worst Depiction of a Marvel character on screen. Lots of choices, including a few I had not thought of. Who's your pick?
