It seems like forever since I posted about a comic. And it might have been. I've been going through this phase where I don't really want to read anything with pictures. Ok, I read Wonder Woman. And I read Anita Blake. I have one hell of a pile stacking up next to my bedside table which includes a fave story teller (Fables) and a fave artist, Skottie Young ( Wizard of OZ). Ok that applies to fave story as well but ... I don't know. I'm just into text these days. I'm reading two books. Actually, there is three that I am currently reading. And it just so happens that They encompass my reading preferences for the last 30 some years.

#1 ( In no particular order)
A Bear Called Paddington

He's a sweet little bear that reminds me of the innocence of my youth.

#2 (No, really, there is no particular order. Ok maybe it's chronological)
Mara, Daughter of the Nile

Ok, so this one hit me as I was hitting puberty. It's about a scrappy guttersnipe who gets the prince after nearly being whipped to death. It's a good young reader type of book.

#3 ( All right, all right... It's chronological. And, yes, I read 3 books at once.)

For A Few Demons More By Kim Harrison

It's an alternate history where witches, werewolves and vampires came out of the collected broom/blood/furry closet. That is after a virus mutates inside a genetically modified tomato kills a good chunk of the "human" population.

Lots of good mildly innocent fun. Ok, 2 out of 3 has innocent fun.
