In case you missed it, Saturday was Free Comic Book Day. Rocky River Public Library participated in this national event for the first time-with great success! I want to send a big thank you to Carol & John’s Comic Book Shop for helping me plan my big day. In addition to all the free guidance and advice, they helped me purchase the comics to give out, provided me with some beautiful advertising materials, and donated two hardcover Spiderman books to raffle off. Our event was a success and we will definitely be celebrating Free Comic Book Day from now on!
My display. The free Spiderman book is in the lower left.
The New 52, The Avengers and Superman Family were all available for free at the library.
What do you do with old comic books? Make buttons! I had about 40 people, young and young at heart stop in to make buttons. Another 30 stayed for popcorn and a Batman movie. About 200 free comics went to new homes. All in all-success and I am already brainstorming ideas for next year.
What I finished:
Timepiece: An Hourglass Novel by Myra McEntire and I am Legend by Richard Matheson.
In my car: Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore. Bawdy, irreverent fun. Absurd reality mixed with absurd fiction. Entertaining and has a fantastic reader. This one doesn’t seem to be a fan favorite, but I am enjoying it very much.
For book club: House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. This is a reread for me, and it’s just as good as I remember it being. I hope my teens like it too. I should finish up tonight.
Before I meet the author: Thou Shalt Not Road Trip by Antony John. He’s the keynote speaker at a conference this week. After an awesome Skye interview with my book club I am excited to get meet him in person. I’ll have this done before Thursday.
While walking the dog: The Langoliers by Stephen King.
And of course, lots and lots of ebooks. I am currently working on Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson and The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa.
My head is swimming with all of this! That’s all for now. What are you reading?
