For those nerds that're curious, the 15 graphic novels read include volumes of The Walking Dead (9), The Invisibles (3), Usagi Yojimbo (2), and Jack Of Fables (1). For those even BIGGER nerds that're curious, the more text-based books include One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich, The Scarlet Letter, Captains Courageous, The Naked And The Dead, Great Adventure Stories (some Watermill Press paperback with five classic short stories in it that I snagged from the parents' shelf at Thanxgiving because I finished The Naked And The Dead a few days before leaving), On The Road, and True Grit.
Looking at these "more recent acquisitions" shelves got me a little more excited about reading than I have been for awhile. I know everyone and their Dad's Bastard is probably reading or re-reading True Grit right about now; maybe that's another reason I just wanna be through with it. I still haven't seen the re-make movie version ("it's not a re-make," you may say; "yes it is," I say), but had intended to soon even before deciding to read the book. Of course beyond all the stuff I was getting excited about on the recent-acquisitions shelves, there's the Sherlock Holmes books that I still wanna get through at some point (especially after seeing Elementary, Dear Data today...yes, I am going on about both graphic literature and Star Trek: The Next Generation in this post, I'm the king). Basically for those that don't know/haven't seen, if I never bought another book again as long as I lived, I would probably still not have the time to read all the ones I have, to say nothing of re-readings or new books I'm bound to get or the like.
I kinda wanna stay up super-late tonight after finishing this book and re-organize these bookshelves to accommodate all of the newer books into the current cataloguing system...
P.S. I applied for like six jobs with the library (both SLPL AND SLCL) in the past week.
