Books Completed: 10
Date Completed: January 8, 2009
Pages: 160
Publication Date: August 12, 1986

One of the subjects that I have been known to read a lot about is the World Wars and the events that shaped them. So, a graphic novel about the events of the Holocaust is something that is going to go on my wish list automatically, and, I actually got around to reading! The review of book one is up on Historical Tapestry, so head on over there and read my thoughts! I am going to whip up the review of book two later today.

Oh, and I spent the rest of my gift card (finally). I got four more books in the Fables series. I was going to get five of them, but book seven takes 1-2 weeks to ship for some reason, so I am just going to buy a copy when I am in the city next because they actually have it in stock! I have more gift cards that I am saving for when Patricia Briggs new book comes out, so I imagine I will get a couple more books in the series then. What can I say? I'm in love!


  1. I have heard a lot about Maus. Sounds very intriguing. I am not sure I could get into a graphic novel, though. I'll be interested in hearing more from you on this one...

  2. Graphic Novels are not my usual thing, but there are a few good ones out there. If you aren't sure, there is always the library. This one won the Pulitzer, so it should be easy to track down.

  3. You've been reading such great books! Off to read your full review.

  4. I'm trying to be cultured. :)
