Would I be far off saying you have a fascination with Kiss? :P

My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses - Steven Adler

I'm just about to start the book now, but I gotta wonder just how much of this book is actually written by Steven. My money is on his collaborator writing the lion's share of the book. With all the OD's he has suffered over the years, I can't imagine that he would remember much if anything. We shall see........

Steampunk - 1,000 Steampunk Creations: Neo-Victorian Fashion, Gear, and Art

This is a very cool book. The pictures are taken with care and in extreme detail. Divided up by subjects, clothing, bugs, accessories, etc. I love the look of steampunk with the rich colors and the amazing imagination behind the creations. A nice small to midsize coffee table book.

Is it more pictures than actual text in the book? It looks interesting and something I want to check out for sure.

It's 99.5% pictures. Very little text. In fact I had a hard time telling what some of those items were and their intent.

Can your library search other libraries around the country including schools?

If local branch doesn't carry it, it will search all the adjacent branches and then ship down to mine if it has it. Otherwise, SOL.

Yeah, but it takes a lot longer than I'd like it to get done. I put in orders for both Off The Rails and My Appetite for Destruction about 6 months ago and they just came out a few weeks ago as you can see since those are the most recent books I've been reading. I'll do the same for Steampunk but it will probably take even longer to make its way here because it's not a high priority book like the others.
