As a form of protest, I am going to blog about my favourite comics/graphic novels.
- Runaways (series), and Pride of Baghdad (both by Brian K. Vaughn):
- Ethel and Ernest by Raymond Briggs
- Blankets by Craig Thompson
- Louis Riel: A comic-strip biography by Chester Brown
I've been sitting on this post for 3 hours, hoping I'd find a spare sec to add summaries, but it's not happening.... Just read the above. Read Ethel and Ernest for nostalgia, for wartime England, for your ageing parents. Read Blankets to recall your first love, or a brush with fundamentalist religion!
I must tackle some of my to-do list now, since I'm off this afternoon to frolic in the tulips (yes, I will post some pics). Pre-frolic activities include writing some discussion questions for a home-based learners' book club (this month's selection is Fake I.D., a gripping YA suspense book about a girl who has been running from something - her mum won't tell her what - her whole life...), developing some posters and bingo cards (don't ask) for future library association-related events, scheduling (the highlight of my day, she said sarcastically), and then there's always the 12:30 information download when my colleague gets here! At least I came in early today (at 8, gah, after getting up at 5:45 for a run!) to fill the displays and get a head start on some stuff.
