Once again, out of town and couldn't get this up...so here are the belated odds 'n ends from last week week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:




  • Why Reading Comics Makes You Smarter -- I used to love stuff like this when I was a young comic book geek -- even if my father was never as impressed as he should've been. Still, thanks to Geek & Sundry for giving kids today more ammo.








  • Switcheroo by Aaron J. Elkins -- A trip to Britain's Channel Islands with Dr. Oliver? Don't mind if I do.


  • Calamity by Brandon Sanderson -- the final book in the Reckoners series. This should be great.


Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to JAH and raulconde001 for following the blog this week. Thanks to Brenton Dickieson for the interaction.
