Several of them over the past couple of months, actually.
The Rising (Brian Keene): The best zombie book I've ever read. Also, the only zombie book I've ever read. It's been ages since I plowed through a novel this quickly (5 days). Thoroughly engrossing. I am more than ready to read the sequel (see my reading pile). Can't wait for the movie and videogame.
Hollywood, Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon - The Case Against Celebrity (Andrew Breitbart, Mark Ebner): Celebrities are freakin' nuts. An interesting read.
South Park Conservatives: The Revolt Against Liberal Media Bias (Brian C. Anderson): While this book dealt mainly with liberal bias in the media (paging Dan Rather) and the emergence of its conservative counterparts, I thought it would spend more time on the concept of South Park Republicans (ideology summed up by Matt Stone: "I hate conservatives, but I really fucking hate liberals."). They seem to be more in line with libertarian thought than the GOP hardline and I would include myself with the former. It covered the growing conservative leanings of Generations X and Y (jeez, I hate those terms), but not enough. So, in that respect, the book was a bit of a disappointment.
My Immediate Reading Pile:
City of the Dead (Brian Keene): The sequel to Keene's The Rising. More zombie goodness. I can't wait.
If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor (Bruce Campbell): Memoir from our nation's, nay our world's greatest living thespian.
Opus: 25 Years of His Sunday Best (Berkeley Breathed): "Bloom County" has long been one of my favorite comic strips. I look forward to revisiting these Sunday strips. Hilarious stuff.
Batman: The Complete History (Les Daniels): Just to get me reved up for the upcoming movie.
Mere Christianity and The Great Divorce (C.S. Lewis): The former I had been wanting to read for ages; the latter just seemed interesting. So I bought them both. A little light summer reading. :)
I guess the library's not just for copying CDs anymore.
