Heavy Metal Islam: Rock, Resistance, and the Struggle for the Soul of Islamby Mark LeVine

Started: July 1, 2011
Finished: July 9, 2011

This was an interesting topic but not a very good book. LeVine is not a bad writer technically but he's a boring one. This read like a government report or a master's thesis on rock in the Middle East. It was very dry. 275 pages. Grade: C+

First Meetings in the Enderverse
by Orson Scott Card

Started: July 8, 2011
Finished: July 9, 2011

I really enjoyed this collection of four short stories/novellas all set in the "Enderverse." I especially liked the first story about the childhood of Ender's dad. 208 pages. Grade: A

The Walking Dead #80
by Robert Kirkman

Started/Finished: July 9, 2011

This was a pretty depressing issue--not that any issue of this comic is too uplifting. 28 pages. Grade: A
