Coming Attractions

Lest that you think we are sleeping here in Düsseldorf*, I wanted to provide an update on what we have planned for you here at He Read/She Read.

Next week, Rebekah (from Waffles Waffles All Day Long) and I are planning to hold forth on David Seals' The Powwow Highway. Keep an eye out here, there and at Speaking in CAPS for details on when those reviews will be posted.

I am also now reading Yann Martel's Life of Pi so that Pamela (from the dayton time) and I can bestow upon you, Gentle Reader, all our accumulated wisdom concerning that tome...and stuff.

And, sometime soon, He Read/She Read will be proud (and relieved) to present to you our first Jim Styro-less review (please, please...hold your applause until all the names have been read) when Captain Dumbass (my personal hero, from Us and Them) and the Middle-Aged Woman (my personal heroine, from Unmitigated) will dazzle us with their insights concerning Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which takes Jane Austen's classic tale and, with considerable assistance from Seth Grahame-Smith, adds the brain-eating undead. Sounds like fun.

You don't want to miss a thing.
So remember: Keep Reading – it’s good for you.

And you didn't really want to rake up the leaves anyway.

* Thanks to Jim Henson & Mel Brooks.

You've got a great line-up for the Autumn. I'll be looking forward to reading the reviews. I'm particulary interested in the Jane Austen & Zombies book.

Woo hoo! Bring on the bookends! (That made more sense before I wrote it.)


okay jim - life of pi i read and thought the animals were really animals - never said i was a brain surgeon

you visited me over at the crib and my whammer jammer post where i had a dream sequence about hanging children's nut sacks from my christmas tree

to answer your question - i am not a HUGE fan of j geils but am aware of who they are and have probably listened to them blaring from a 3rd rate stereo at someone's crappy apartment in college at some point in my life

lastly, which blog am i to follow? i am starting with this one, but if i am wrong, then let me know and i will switch it up

thanks for your kudos on the post title - i try to keep it a little on the lunatic mother side :)

Dedene: I knew once I stopped writing reviews, reader interest in the site would grow (please ignore my pitiful martyr act). Thanks for your faithful reading and commenting.

SK: I hope to have the bookends all sanded down, varnished and ready for shipment this week. If the Lord's willing - and the creek don't rise.

SFTC: Dear Fellow Traveler whose blog name starts with "Speaking" - thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I'm only 50 pages into Life of Pi - so I guess I'm going to have to watch out for when the animals aren't animals ('cause I'm no brain surgeon neither). If you have never heard the J. Geils song "Whammer Jammer", you should definitely check it out (click here - it's not Geils playing with Magic Dick - but it's the best clip I could find on You Tube of the song).

Although you wouldn't think so from the recent past, I would suggest following my antics at Speaking in CAPS. Not that long ago, I was posting nearly every day - but things have gotten busy. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope you stop by again soon.
