Love the Scott Pilgrim books...lots of stuff in them that didn't make it into the movie.

I read "A Christmas Carol" pretty much every year around Christmastime, but this is the first year reading the annotated version. It clarified a few phrases that were archaic enough that I didn't get them and expanded some of the background, but more than half the book was taken up by an introduction to the book and an introduction to Dickens's very abridged version used for public reading (also in the book) that, taken together, were essentially a short biography of Dickens. Interesting stuff, but next year I'll probably just read the main book.

Love The Goon series. Eric Powell's artwork is unreal.

My lifestyle switch to working from home has ruined my reading habits. Used to read a solid hour or two a day, usually before work and during my lunch break. Now, nope.

[...] compares manuscript text to published text, with commentary, and Tolkien seems to have gotten a lot of the flavor and details of the final version into even the first draft. The commentary is interesting, though.


Finished it. What I said when only partway through is still accurate, though the revisions, especially the abandoned attempt in 1960 to bring it into better agreement with The Lord of the Rings (as recommended by Shoe), were interesting.

That original AvP miniseries was aces...shame it'll never be faithfully adapted into a movie.
