September 2012 - What I'm Reading

Unbelievable, it's September already!

In keeping with my ongoing interest in food, I'm reading "Chew", a graphic novel with story by John Layman and art by Rob Guillory. The title will get your attention first, the art second and the story finally. But the story's a good one with reminders of "Soylent Green" but gone wa-yyy out of control.

Unfortunately, the library system has only the first volume, and there's only one in the entire system. Since 2009, 5 other volumes have been published. The DH has already finished reading it, and is wanting MORE. Any readers out there have these and willing to donate? My influence in this section goes only so far with our reduced budget for this fiscal year. Sad.

It may not seem like it, but I AM interested in other things! Style. Visual Design. Which is why I'm reading the Illustrated Elements of Style by Strunk, White and Kalman. I don't know about you, but I am definitely a visual person, and Kalman's images really bring these guidelines for clarity in writing to life. I need my own copy.
