Steve Jobs - Walter Isaacson

I read an excerpt from this a few weeks ago and liked it. Have not had the chance to sit down with the whole book... yet.

I put a bid for the Regular Edition and the Large Print Edition at the Library. Not many were putting the bid in for the Large Print Edition, so that cut my wait time to practically nothing. It's a whopping 812 pages, but it would take me the same amount of time to get through it if it were the Small Print Edition. I'm still around 150 on the wait list for the other one, which I'm going to keep my name on so I can see where I am when I finish this one. It's for scientific purposes.

Horror Films of the 1990s - John Kenneth Muir



This is a collection of critical essays and reviews of just about every horror movie during the 1990's, broken down by year. It is what it is. As with any one reviewing a movie, their are spot on and other times, WTF. I'm reading it mostly for those movies I haven't seen. Though there is some interesting stuff on my fav big time movies. This is definitely geared for horror freaks like me. Otherwise, I imagine it would not even be the least bit interesting to pick up, let alone read.

Very few pictures.  :-\

For some reason my library does not have Horror Films of the 1970s or Horror Films of the 1980s

Mail-Order Mysteries, real stuff from old comic ads - Jesse Thorn



This was a fun book to browse through. A well documented of all those strange goofy items you could buy in the back of magazines. A very quick read. Just quick synopsis of the items. Really, not much to tell about the item.

I ran across two items I know I bought. Greedy Fingers Bank and Magic Discs. The bank was cool.

Fleetwood Mac: The Definitive History



Iím only half way through this massive coffee table book. But to be honest, the early blues years are not much interest to me for this band. I like a handful of songs like Bare Trees, Hypnotized and Sentimental Lady which came from that transitional period that was run by Bob Welch and wading into radio friendly pop.  The Pre Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era takes up half the book, but I can assume the massive success thereafter will be covered in the 2nd half with great detail. The era Iím interested in.

Yes Sir, you do. I've already opened an account to get my feet wet. But I feel I need to do this the right way to fully maximize potential sales and how best to build up returning clientele. So, this book hopefully will fill in a lot of those blanks. Do you have an account Mac?

If you mean do I buy from eBay, yes on rare occasion. I bought the Kansas poster recently and it's apparent the guy I bought it from has a business on there. Also when I was looking for some Tommy Bahamas, I ran across a guy with a 'store', Thayer kept me engaged monthly, for awhile.

F In Exams - Richard Benson

This had tears rolling down my eyes. Like Sh*t My Dad Says, there's always something next that made me bust out laughing. As the author says, these are moments where the student obviously said phuck it and wrote something off the wall.
