A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

Saturday, December 30, 2006



While I feel comfortable picking my top movies and albums in a given year, I’m not nearly well read enough to do the same for books. So, instead, I will list the comics and books I read over the year that I would recommend to others. Granted, this means I read more than what is on here. Also, I read more comics than are here, but if it was in issue form, I only listed series with significant amount released in the year (at least six issues). I also didn't list short stories (read many by Cornell Woolrich out of Night & Fear) and poems (lots of Baudelaire).
