I have all my books sent to my parents' apartment in New York, to save on shipping and customs. That means whenever we come to visit, I get to open a slew of boxes. It's like Christmas in March!
So, today I got prezzies!
Six Degrees of Separation (research for adapting The Alternative
into a play)
Love and Human Remains (ditto)
Thinking in Pictures (autism)
The Ride Together (autism)
Our Journey Through (autism)
Hello, Lied the Agent (showbiz)
This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession (science makes you smart!)
Twilight of the Mammoths (ditto)
The Secret Language of the Renaissance (art is sexy!)
Lud in the Mist (Neil said to get it)
Micro Nations (um ... there could be something in there ... couldn't there?)
Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die (did I even order this?)
Making Comics, by Scott McCloud
100 Bullshit Jobs and How to Get Them (how can you not love the title?)
Absolute Sandman vol. 1 (research for ... oh, who am I kidding?)
Watchmen (because I didn't get it the first time)
These oughta hold me for, I dunno, 2 weeks?
