It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? (08/20/12)

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

This Week I’m Reading:

Lake Effect: Tales of Large Lakes, Arctic Winds, and Recurrent Snows by Mark Monmonier

This is from NetGalley. Looked interesting, and when is better to read a book about snow and arctic winds than in August. I’m hoping that it will be somewhat “popular” in its tone and not strictly dry science. Anecdotes may not be science, but they certainly help describe science.

Doctor Who Dave Gibbons Collection by Pat Mills, Steve Moore, Steve Parkhouse, Dave Gibbons (illustration)

Industry legend Dave Gibbons illustrated a classic run of Doctor Who comics, and this oversized book collects them all And in full color Gibbons-drawn strips began appearing the very first issue of Doctor Who Magazine (then titled Doctor Who Weekly), starring the Fourth Doctor as portrayed by Tom Baker, and Gibbons continued as the primary artist until issue #69, a Fifth Doctor tale. This volume also features an introduction by Gibbons, along with early Doctor Who sketches from the master. (Goodreads)

Another one from NetGalley. Already about 40 pages in.

Short Story of the Week:

“Wolf Trapping” by Kij Johnson over at Apex

The Usual:

A poem, a section of Poetic Edda and a chapters of A Clash of Kings.

What I Read Last Week:

Took part in Bout of Books 5.0. Finished up Kiss of Steel, finally, as well as the steampunk anthology I was working on and We Need to Talk About Kevin. Reviews will be coming, probably in that order.

    Lake Effect sounds very interesting to me. I spent many years living next to Lake Superior so I know very well about the impact of lake effect on the weather! It was always great to feel that cool breeze coming off of the lake during the hot summer months. But during the winter?? Oooh, a totally different story!

    Hope you enjoy your reads and have a great week!
