Ways of Seeing by John Berger (re-read: I read it years ago and have picked it up, here and there, to read different parts but never re-read it completely until this past week.) 'Highly recommended.

Green Migraine, poems by Michael Dickman (I'm still trying to decide what I think of this book.)

Star- Blind In The Family of Fortune Keepers, poems by Melissa Atkinson Mercer
(Not just because she is my dear friend but also because no one writes like she does, and very few as beautifully and compellingly, I highly recommend it.)

Gave up on Schlock -o- Rama: The Films of Al Adamson  and donated it to one of those free popup library boxes by the Prospect Park Q station stop alongside four volumes of Questionable Content webcomic collections.

Flown through the excellent Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters.  Prior to that, Y: The Last Man - The Deluxe Edition Book Three by Brian K. Vaughan.  Got the final two deluxe edition volumes of that series... praise to Amazon.com.  Now alternating between Vol. 4 of that series and Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman.
