    Last stuff I purchased was this:

    Fantastic Four Vol 3 HC. The last one from the Waid / Wieringo run Got the first 2 Vols back in december.
    New X-Men By Morrison Ultimate Coll TP Book 03. Also got the first 2 back in dec.
    Best Of Spider-Man Vol 4 HC (Straczynski) I couldn't find Vol 1, and vols 2 and 3 were more expensive than what I could afford, so I started with this volume which was on sale and I'll try to get the other ones some other time
    Sentry TP I wasn't going to get Sentry at all, but it was on sale and if I added it to the shopping cart the shipping for all books was free, while if I didn't get it I was going to pay more in shipping than getting it, lol. There were few other choices at the same price I could get, but this interested me the most.
    Stormbreaker Saga Of Beta Ray Bill TP Got Thor disassembled last year, can't wait to see what happened with Beta Ray after Ragnarok.
    300 HC by Frank Miller... well, not everythng has to be Marvel in my bookshelf .

    I don't have all this stuff yet, though, it will take about a month before it arrives in my country.

    My last purchase that wasn't comics were Les Miserables (in spanish), which I had read before from a borrowed set (2 tomes), but now I have my own copy to read again... and again and again. This is one of my top 3 favorite books ever!
    Together with Victor Hugo, I got also a small book by Stephen Hawking -and daughter-, but when I got home I noticed it was a story for children, and not to-the-point popular science in the likes of A Brief History of Time as I thought it was. Still looks ok and got very nice pictures from the Hubble sat., so it looks interesting even if toned down for kids... as I think it is, at least, have yet to read it. I don't know the english name for this book.

    Paths of Darkness & Spearwielder's Tale by R.A. Salvatore (They're actually collections of his other books. The first one is actually some of his Forgotten Realms books in one Collector's Edition, and the second is the entire trilogy in one book.)

    The last book i was gonna buy was The Heroin Diaries,, but then i was told the price..$35.00 that scared me off.

    So i will say the little booklet, "The Antichrist". I got it from some religious site. looks like a good read.

    I just finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy (same guy that wrote No Country for Old Men) it was fantastic. One of the best books I've read in a long time. It's a post-apocalyptic story about a man and his son. Good stuff.

    How is it? I like those Suicide Girls with all their tattoos. Tattoos are cool.

    Be careful about religious pamphlets. They're usually just a bunch of propaganda. I read one once that said the Catholic Pope would be the Antichrist. How would anyone know that? Anyway, if you want to read religious stuff, stick to the materials that promote the religion you're reading about, instead of stuff that bashes other religions.

    Really freaking heavy.

    Definitely worth the Amazon price, especially if you don't want a membership. The website updates way too much and there's too much chaff/ sets that look the same.

    I second that. Not even finished with it and already I predict it'll be the best book I read all year. Fan of zombies or not--get this book. Besides, you want to be one of us who said we read it before the movie comes out...
    You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    "Gladiator" by Dan "Nitro" Clark about his days as an American Gladiator and abusing steroids for 20 years. But it's more than just another tell-all steroid story, Dan opens up about all of his inadequacies that led him to that road and the price he now pays for his selfishness. Riveting read.

    The place I moved to is right next to a Borders, so I've been buying books like crazy.

    Coraline and The Graveyard Book, both by Neil Gaiman.

    Favorite Wife: Escape from Polygamy by Susan Ray Schmidt. The author is actually the ex-sister-wife of Irene Spencer, whose book Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamist's Wife I read last year and loved. Favorite Wife was just as good.

    Goth Culture: Gender, Sexuality, and Style by Dunja Brill. I have a few Goth friends and really like the clothing style, so I wanted to learn more about the culture. This book is more academic than I'd thought it would be, but it's been very informative so far.

    Peeps: Recipes and Crafts to Make with Your Favorite Marshmallow Treat by Charity Ferreira. I actually got this one at Cost Plus World Market. I love Peeps, and the ideas in this book are really cute.

    Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall. Another book about life in a polygamous cult. I've been wanting to read this book ever since I finished the wonderful Escape by Carolyn Jessop, so I was excited to see it finally in paperback. I'm only a few pages in, but it's good so far.

    Planet Cat: A Cat-alog by Sandra Choron et al. This book was just too cute to resist. I think I'm turning into Angela from The Office.
    "Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements."

    "I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything I thought it could be."
