Over on LibraryThing, I have posted my thoughts on Benjamin Wallace’s interesting wine-focused book The Billionaire’s Vinegar. Pretty interesting stuff (not the review, but the book).
If you like to read historical fiction, check out David Liss’ new one The Whiskey Rebels. I have posted my review over on LibraryThing.
ED: I forgot to mention that I was sent this book as part of LT’s Early Reviewers program. So there is a grain of salt to consider while reading my thoughts on the book.
Earlier this year, I was given a copy of Roxane Orgill’s Dream Lucky: When FDR was in the White House, Count Basie… and I finally got around to posting a short review over on LibraryThing. Maybe short isn’t the word… punchy… yeah, that’s what we’ll call it. Not short, but punchy.
The Book Design Review Blog has a good post on Chip Kidd’s Bat-Manga!, which features Batman as he’s been portrayed in Japan since the 60’s. The post also has videos as well as shots of the covers. I don’t speak Japanese, but I love the way that the characters in the Bat-symbol have the cowl points on them. Very cool stuff!
