If Only We Could Read Faster (for December 7)

If time and money were infinite, this is what we would buy and read.*


How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming
Mike Brown
There was a reason he had to sleep naked in the yard while Goofy got to be inside wearing clothes and shit.
(Excerpt. Mark wants this for Christmas.)

Apocalypse for Beginners
Nicolas Dickner
So you’re sticking with “Dickner”, huh?
That was a really cheap shot. Also, the translator’s name is Lazer Lederhendler. There is a sublimity of naming mojo going on here that I don’t think I’m ready to fully grasp.
(Excerpt. Review.)

The Sword Complete Collected Deluxe Hardcover
Joshua and Jonathan Luna
I know, what the fuck is going on with that sword, right? But look.
(Excerpt. I liked volume 1 in public. It ended like a boss.)

*This is going to be the last one of these until after Christmas because the flow of books becomes (a) small, and (b) almost exclusively restricted to self-help and diet books. If I miss anything I’ll catch up with it afterwards, never fear. And since chances are—whatever faith or lack thereof you subscribe to—you’re celebrating some kind of mid-winter holiday that involves eating and goodwill, let me take this opportunity to wish you all the best. Thanks for reading!
