I am writing this post from our hotel, as there is only a single [used] bookstore in town.
(I am so glad that I now have a Nook - thanks to my wonderful wife! - not sure that I could survive without a new bookstore in town!)
It figures that once I got used to having wi-fi access close by, in Illinois, I would end up in a town without a bookstore...
Speaking of books, I'll start off this month's wrap-up with:
Best Book of the Month:
'Deadheads: Evolution' - by: Franklin E. Wales
'Ghoul' - by Brian Keene
Other books that I read this month:
'Getting Off: A Novel of Sex & Violence' - by Lawrence Block (*writing as Jill Emerson)
*Note: I almost gave this book the runner-up spot, yet I decided on Keene's 'Ghoul' at the last minute... It's a good book, however it is pretty hardcore (both in the sex and the violence departments!) Definitely not for everyone!!
'Metallica: All that Matters' - by: Paul Stenning
'Jack & Grace: A Love Story' - by: Jacki Wildman Wales
(any regular reader of this blog knows what a huge fan I am of Franklin E. Wales... this book is written by his wife - the true story of her parent's meeting/romance - for any of you "romantics" out there)
Best Movie of the Month:
Other movies that I watched this month:
(in the order that I watched them)
Hostel: Part 3
A Good Old Fashioned Orgy
The Hangover: Part 2
I'm Reed Fish
30 Minutes or Less
Kung Fu Panda 2
Deep in the Valley
Scar (*I almost gave this movie the runner-up spot, as I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was - the only reason that I watched it was due to Angela Bettis... in the end though, I went with Underworld 4, due more to the "fun factor" however, this one is recommended as well)
Dolphin Tale (a great family movie!)
The Craigslist Killer
Haywire (*still in the theater - it's good - I would recommend waiting for video though...)
Man, I'm going to miss where I was living in Bloomington, IL - I literally had a movie, from Netflix, every day there, the turn-around time was that fast!
If anyone has any questions, about anything listed above, leave a comment, and I'll respond when I get back on-line (whenever that may be!)
I'll check, for the next day or two, via the app on my iPhone as well...
Speaking of which, for any "iDevice" users out there:
Best App of the Month:
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 (I have played this more than any other game this month - Fun!)
Star Marine: Infinite Ammo (if you loved the old Nintendo game 'Contra', check this one out!)
Also, (for those who haven't read my G+ post) I recommend downloading the Wattpad e-reader app and checking out the serial novel 'Bleeder' by Monica S. Kuebler (this is a great read!)
Monica posts a new chapter, every Sunday (tomorrow will be Chapter 5, so jump on board now!)
That's all for this month - check back again, at the end of February!
