Picked up a couple of Stephen King short story collections because the library is free and why not.
"Nightmares and Dreamscapes" and "Everything's Eventual". A couple of stories into "Nightmares..." so far so good.

Just bought a used copy of Lew Bryson's _Tasting Whiskey: An Insider's Guide to the Unique Pleasures of the World's Finest Spirits_.

Looking forward to bringing it to work and reading during the slow hours. It's got excellent reviews. I hope it deepens my understanding of whiskey.

So much to learn.

"The Twilight Man: Rod Seeking & the Birth of Television" a graphic novel by Koren Shadmi. Just started it, not too shabby. Somehow a comic book seems fitting for anything Twilight Zone related.

There Goes Gravity, a Life in Rock and Roll by Lisa Robinson.

The author was a long tome columnist at the Washington Post and N.Y. Times and an editor for Cream and several other music magazines. She's currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair.

The book is 350 pages of stories of being on the road with the Stones, Bowie, John Lennon, Lou Reed, Zeppelin, Eminem, Lady Gaga and others.

I've probably read 20 similar books, but this one is one of the best so far. Most of the others are pretty stilted while this one is pretty down-to-earth.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a drunk man tortilla chips, Velveeta and a hair dryer and he has nachos.

Attempting to read "Trainspotting" by Irvine Welsh. Maybe drinking more scotch would improve my comprehension. This is one of the most difficult books I've ever tackled.

Re-reading some of my issues of Tales from the Crypt and The Haunt of Fear. The weird ones with the horror in the front and Weird Science-Fantasy in the back. The Weird Science stuff has surprisingly grown on me.

Expanding my EC comic collection beyond horror. Recently picked up some copies of Shock SuspenStories and Crime SuspenStories. Good stuff!
