The book I am currently reading:
I am always reading more than one book. In my reading cue at the moment I have the following:
- For fiction, C.S. Goto, Blood Ravens: The Dawn of War Omnibus (Warhammer 40,000); Anthony Boucher, The Compleat Boucher: The Complete Short Science Fiction and Fantasy of Anthony Boucher (this one is part of my 12 Months, 12 Books challenge, on which I am falling behind).
- Nonfiction: David Boaz, ed., The Libertarian Reader: Classic and Contemporary Writings from Lao-Tzu to Milton Friedman.
- Graphic novel or manga: Akihisha Ikeda, Rosario+Vampire, Vol. 1; Rei Hiroe, Black Lagoon, Vol. 3.
- Fiction: Graham McNeill, The Ultramarines Omnibus (Warhammer 40,000).
- Nonfiction: Gregory Dicum, The Coffee Book: Anatomy of an Industry from Crop to the Last Drop.
- Graphic novel or manga: Geoff Johns, Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Vol. 2.
There are a few, or a lot, of books I want to read next. However, there are some I feel I should get to next:
- Fiction: Lew Wallace, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. Another option is Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World and Other Stories. (These are both listed for my 12 Months, 12 Books challenge).
- Nonfiction: Maureen Stanton, Killer Stuff and Tons of Money: Seeking History and Hidden Gems in Flea-market America. (I won this from one of the GoodReads giveaways, so I feel a need to read it. Plus, it's about flea markets in the U.S., so it is a bit of Americana, which is a topic I like to read about once in a while).
- Graphic novel or manga: This can go anywhere as I have a lot on deck. Choices include, but are not limited to the following: Tsuchiya and Minegishi, Old Boy, Vol. 1, or Will Eisner, The Best of The Spirit.
- Chip Kidd, et.al., Bat-Manga! The Secret History of Batman in Japan (something unique and different. Also, it was on sale when I found it).
- Brusha and Tedesco, Grimm Fairy Tales, Vol. 5.
- This is easy because it's a special one: Simon Beecroft, Lego Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary. It's special because, besides the fact that I like Legos and Star Wards, it was a Father's Day gift from my daughter.
