The Wordpress Anthology by Mick Olinik and Raena Jackson Armitage, published by SitePoint. Learning about programming for Wordpress. Gonna use it to revamp some websites that are badly in need of a proper CMS.

Just started American Gods.  It's off to a good start, but.....dear gods, unbirthing.  WHY?

Do Graphic Novels/ comics count?? Because I just finished Darth Vader and the Lost Commend, and I'm re-reading Mara Jade: By the Emperors's Hand. Sorry, I'm just waiting for a book to arrive in the mail.

Got two more books. On Liberty by John Stuart Mill and Levitation by Hobbes.

Epic book about EPCOT with tons of great concept art. I love retro-futuristic stuff and EPCOT is probably to blame anyways, so I just love reading it. If only the world had gone the way Walt thought it would...

Is it wrong that a "Walt Disney hated the Jews" joke popped in my head when I read this sentence??

So I'm a little ways into reading Star Wars Darth Plagueis and I have to say I love how they make Palpatine into
(click to show/hide)
It makes me love Palpatine even more, now.

Rebel Angels, by Libba Bray.

Love it. It's a Victorian gothic style with lesbianism thrown in.

I, Partridge: We need to talk about Alan.

Makes little sense if you haven't watched much Partridge. If you have, it's fucking hilarious.

His way of publicizing the book doesn't make me want to read it.
