Pete love!

"Eventually the shark died...and shortly thereafter stopped swimming."

I'd forgotten how fucking AMAZING 'The Watchmen' was. Somebody's posting the entire thing on fullscans_daily as the twelve days of Watchmen, and I started downloading them, intending to read the whole thing later, but every time I start downloading the pages, I'll catch a panel or a line, and I'm totally trapped in the story. This was one of the most amazing comics ever written; there's a damn good reason it's one of the most important works in the history of comics, on so many levels. I can't even begin to describe how awesome it is. If anyone here hasn't read it yet, and you're looking for something dark, gritty, and utterly beautiful, you might want to check it out.
Pete love!

LibraryThing!

I found librarything.com through Neil Gaiman's feed, and I've spent the past several hours putting stuff in my library. It's so much fun, I'll enter something and then the suggestions will lead me to something else I read ages ago and didn't remember (because seriously, I've read a LOT of books XD.) So far I'm at 236 titles, but I've barely scratched the surface. I haven't even entered most of the books I OWN, just ones I read ages ago. XD I was going back to tag the ones I did have in my library, though, and I killed librarything, apparently. It won't load now. Guess I'll have to go play Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst until it comes back. ;_;
