Checking Out the Library

This week’s loot includes some new comics. Since I’m up-to-date on The Walking Dead and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I thought I would check out some new comics and definitely continue with the American Vampire.

In 1976, a uniquely seductive world of vampires was unveiled in the now-classic Interview with the Vampire . . . in 1985, a wild and voluptous voice spoke to us, telling the story of The Vampire Lestat.  In The Queen of the Damned, Anne Rice continues her extraordinary “Vampire Chronicles” in a feat of mesmeric storytelling, […]

Checking Out the Library

It’s been a slow week for library books. Which is perfectly fine with me since I currently have 46 books/audiobooks/dvds checked out. Even better, I managed to get my hold list down to three items: a DVD for my son, a book and an e-book for me. As much as I enjoy my library, I […]
