Happy World Book Day 2019

Happy World Book Day, everyone!

It's been quite a while since I last posted, and I apologize for that.  I hope to be here more often, though not necessarily on a regular basis.

I acquired a number of books lately, including several I've been trying to find for years.  Almost all of these are pertinent to this, or another, project, but I also found a slew of recent Stephen King books I didn't have for $1.00 - $3.00!  Hardcovers, to boot!

I started listening to more audiobooks, too.  I'm still adjusting to it: It's nothing like actually reading a book, but it beats talk radio... usually.  It's actually pretty great, since I can do other things while listening.  And podcasts and talk radio are still fine, sometimes.

Currently, I am making my way through several selections, including The Darkening Age: The Christian Destruction of the Classical World by Catherine Nixey; Doctor Sleep, Stephen King's sequel to his seminal The Shining; and Camelot 3000, a cult classic in comics that I missed as a child, and finally found at a reasonable price.

But I picked up literally dozens of new (to me) books for pennies over the last few years, including all of Jules Verne's works (collected); all of HP Lovecraft's works (collected); all of Mark Twain's published writings (collected); and more, as well as non-fiction focused largely on writing, creativity, cookbooks, and so on. Most of these are digital, but I found an awesome used bookstore about an hour from me, and got a lot of hardcopy, too.  Got a shitload of magazines, as well.

My schedule is exhausting just to think about, but World Book Day gives me a great excuse to spend some time reading.
