Go, Look!
(or: Book Links, In Lieu of News)

Literary editor Robert McCrum attacks the aged in his newest Guardian UK piece, Let's Face It, After 40 You're Past It.

My first exposure to comics was an old, hardcover collection of George Herriman's Krazy Kat. Needless to say, few comics have been able to measure up since. Feel like a five year old me: Head on over to Craig Yoe's recently launched George Herriman site.

Over on LiveJournal, a Bookish member asked, "How do you all decide when to put a book down and stop reading? 50 pages? Something annoying you more than once? And do you feel guilty afterward?" From the length of the comments section, it appears everyone on LJ had an opinion.

Talk about late to the party! 100 Bullets is reaching its penultimate issue this Wednesday, and I only got around to reading the first trade paperback last week. Longtime fans of this engrossing crime comic should visit for an exclusive preview of the 99th issue. As for me, I've got some serious catching up to do.
