Not Worth a Thread: The Book
« on: June 28, 2011, 12:15:46 PM »
"Anno Dracula" by Kim Newman. I haven't heard of it until today. Sounds kind of cool.

Quote
ANNO DRACULA is an alternative history of what would happen if Van Helsing and his rag-tag band of Victorian “hunters” hadn’t taken down the Count. In this case, Dracula would go on to marry Queen Victoria, in the process turning a good portion of London and bringing other lines of vampires out of the woodwork. In the year 1888, this new nightlife has become quite the norm. But not everyone is pleased by the vampire overlord and his children. The murderer “Silver Knife” has started taking down vampire prostitutes in the district of Whitechapel. But these seemingly unimportant murders soon gather the attention of very important people, both warm and cold.

I've become obsessed with William Blake lately. Looking for a good biography. This is probably the one ,eh?

I've decided not to purchase new books anymore. It's either used (preferably from a mom and pop bookstore) or nothing.

Have you heard of these 2nd & Charles places? One went in where our local Borders used to be. Apparently they're the chain version of the mom and pop used book/Cd store.

I went in and looked around, but go to the local mom and pop store first if I'm looking for something.

I like: "the chain version of mom and pop stores."

You mean, like, Borders and Barnes & Noble?

Ha! Exactly.

This is a buy/sell/trade place though which makes it slightly more interesting than just a big box store. Though it feel's like a big box store.

So it's more like a brick and mortar Amazon!

This is awesome... A 50 Shades of Grey review on Goodreads. You have to go to it because it's gif heavy:

Will it still be funny even if I have no idea what 50 Shades of Grey is. The entire phenomenon has passed me by. Thankfully, I think.
