Sunday Post #47
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.
Another busy week- kinda crazy at times. Traveling for work and real life issues kept me from finishing my current read (again) but I did sneak a few comic trade paperbacks in, so at least I got a review up and have a few more on the way. Should be a good week coming up since I have a book I'm almost done with and several more comic reviews on the way. Summer is finally here and the weather has been awesome. I'm looking forward to spending some time at the lakeshore and getting up to northern Michigan for vacation soon.
In other news, I joined the COYER Summer Vacation hosted by Michelle at Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life and Berls at Fantasy Is More Fun. Since pretty much anything can be read for this one, I decided to jump in. Should be fun... and since I've been reading trades I can use them for my COYER goals. :)
Speaking of which, I've been reading some good TPB stuff lately. The Winter Soldier books have been solid. My review of Winter Soldier Winter Kills is here.
AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE:
Some fun updates over at Rapid City Recess- meteor showers, a cougar sighting (?) and mushroom hunting. Great blog by the way. Great photography too...
Here's an interview with Anne Groell, the editor of George RR Martin's Ice and Fire series, answering questions about The Winds of Winter and what it's like working with George. Worth a read.
Like comics? Well Karen and Doug run a great blog over at Bronze Age Babies- and this post looks at the old spinner rack (remember those?) Even better- want to see what comics were on sale any given year and month? Check out this amazing resource at Mike's Amazing World of Comics. Just plug in the date and publisher (Marvel, DC, whoever) and away you go.
Speaking of Game of Thrones, I stumbled across this blog - the Meereenese Blot. Lots of essays here on the state of the series and especially concerning Jon and Dany's story arcs. Worth a read if you want to dig a little deeper...
So how was your week?
