I like fighting evil, and reading books

I think that means I’m a natural for the Morris Public Library summer reading club, even if it is mainly geared for children.

You can also win a coupon for a Dairy Queen ice cream cone for reading enough books! I could trample all over those poky little kids for that.

Perhaps more my style is their Silent Reading Club, where you show up, sit quietly, and instead of talking, you read a book. That’s my kind of social event. Next one is tonight at 5. I’m currently reading Tchaikovsky’s Children of Ruin — it’s got intelligent spiders and cephalopods in it, so it’s like it’s stimulating all of my cerebral erogenous zones.

    Ah yes, I recall reading The Metamorphosis by Kafka in German during my undergraduate days. Hopefully you have an English translation of your book.

    Is there a “Fighting Evil” reading list? I’m looking for some new non-fiction.

    I’m reading Children of Ruin too. It’s awesome. Dogs of War is brilliant too if you haven’t read it.
