"I'm a bookseller" transported here from Bookslut. enjoy.
My summer reading took a surprising turn when in the midst of classes, moving and nuptial things, I found that I am quite partial to Alpha Flight, Power Man, the Avengers and X-Men comic books. Bayard and I did much trolling in the comic section of Downtown Books, which is a trove of treasure, and suffice to say that my regular fiction reading took a backseat to Wolverine and co. I have also been obsessed with Battle Star Galactica-even to the extent of when my comics reading extended into the world of Chris Ware, I was of course examining some Rusty Brown plate with a handy magnifying thing and nearly screamed when I spotted a Battle Star Galactica poster on Rusty's bedroom wall. Also, Chalky is my favorite. Hey Jay! Put that Quimby the Mouse in IBID so I can devour it, thanks.
The comic explosion having settled a bit, and our library having been packed realtively early in anticipation of our long-time-coming move, I picked up the only book not in a box, Confederacy of Dunces, which Bayard got for his birthday, and 3/4 of the way through it, Rusty Brown and Ignatius C. Reilly- brothers from another mother??? Furthermore, Jones is my favorite fiction character read all year.
stay tuned for housewarming party news...until then, here are a couple low quality pictures of our beloved home library. It is named 'junebug vs. hurricane' and dedicated to Borges, a great lover of libraries. Its all quite formal, you see.
the fireplace works!
