Scary Irish Arguments; Buffy Mothers-in-Law of Burden

Irish Born, by Nora Roberts
Comforting reading for sick me. Predictable and charming.
(38; O11)

36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, by Rebecca Newberger Goldstein
Chewy thinky academic fiction. A bit Robertson Davies, a bit Blackwell Companion, and I liked it very much.

Beasts of Burden, vol. 1: Animal Rites, by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson
Oooh, this was great. Dogs and cats battling the forces of supernatural evil.

Buffy Omnibus, vol. 5, by Joss Whedon, Scott Allie, et al.
Fairly nifty, as these things go.

Scary Godmother, by Jill Thompson
Delightful! I love how Thompson blends the truly macabre and the sincerely adorable. Deft and full of love.

Mothers-in-Law and Daughters-in-Law, by Deborah M. Merrill
Hm. I wanted to read this for the stories of the titular women, and I liked those. But I could've done without the repetitive and unscientific social-science quantification that made up most of the book.
