I never quite connected with this book emotionally, but I greatly enjoyed it anyway. Like Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, only richer.
Blueprint for Your Library Marketing Plan, by Patricia H. Fisher and Marseille M. Pride
Sigh. I did not enjoy this book one bit, but I had to read it for school. Wait, there was a 6 page part I really enjoyed. Anyway, it's fine, well-crafted, but it's just not my thing... so tired of "business learning".
Overstory: Zero, by Robert Leo Heilman
The perfect antidote to the previous book. Thoughtful and heartfelt and sometimes outright angry essays, by someone who lives in the timber country of Oregon and has worked a lot of hard physical jobs.
Kill Shakespeare vol. 1, by Conor McCreery et al
I'm looking forward to finding out where this goes next. Falstaff and Juliet were pretty nifty, too.
Friends with Boys, by Faith Erin Hicks
Read this online. Lovely and odd and open-ended comic about a homeschooled teenager entering high school, her family, her friends, and a ghost.
The Children's Blizzard, by David Laskin
I enjoyed the parts of this that were about people's lives and how they came to the prairies and lived there, and the parts about weather service drama, but the gruesome deaths, not so much.
The Public Domain, by James Boyle (nook)
Preaching to the choir, in my case, but I enjoy a good sermon. Lawyers, man:).
Transmetropolitan, vol. 1: Back on the Street, vol. 2: Lust for Life , and vol. 3: Year of the Bastard, by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson
I was exactly the right amount of offended by these, and they're brilliant. Glad there's a bunch more.

The Dream Hunters, by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano
Melancholic and beautiful. The illustrations reward scrutiny.
