I'm reading Sam and Max and on the side, attempting The Cursed Child. I am having trouble getting into it.

I've been casually reading "The Soprano Sessions," written by two very prominent TV critics (one of which is my favorite in the business, Alan Sepinwall, formerly of HitFix and currently with Rolling Stone).  It deconstructs each episode, has some great interviews w/David Chase, etc.  I just re-watched the series from Thanksgiving Break-early Feb. so all these eps are fresh in my mind.  I consider myself a big of an intellectual type, and the nitty-gritty this book gets into as far as themes and symbolism and whatnot of episodes is really fascinating: some of which I totally missed, even after watching "The Sopranos" series probably 4 or 5 times in full.  Great book if your a fan of the most influential TV series of my lifetime, and IMO the 2nd most influential TV series in history behind only "I Love Lucy."

I just finished Gaiman’s Ocean at the End of the Lane. Can’t wait for Good Omens.

Do any of you cry when reading? I'm totally not saying I do. I'm just, you know, really tired and yawn which makes my eyes water.

I do, Miss Kitty, but only in a really macho way.

I feel your trouble on The Cursed Child..... did not care for it at all.... >:(

Just finished reading several books by K. Patrick Donooghue, his book UMO was especially enjoyable.

Cursed Child doesn’t read well. It’s much better as a stage play, but it still doesn’t fill the HP void for me.

I'm doing one for Educators (and so far it's not quite as cool as that, but I think initially it's more about bringing some non-comic fanatics up-to-speed).

Yep.  The best type of art is that which evokes strong emotions.  I was reading "Lovely Bones" at the same time one of my students was raped & murdered (like, that incident happened when I was only about a quarter of the way the "Lovely Bones") and the rest of the time reading that book I was mostly bawling.  Some of the book is a little goofy, but the fundamentals real hit home.  I can't imagine I could read that book ever again, and I've never attempted the movie.  After reading that, I read "Vengeance," the true story of the Israeli Mossad hit-squad who went after the Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorists who murdered the Israeli athletes and coaches at the Munich Olympics in 1972 (Spielberg made a movie about called MUNICH).  Where I was at at the time, the book of vengeance, hunting down and murdering terrorists, was very therapeutic, especially after "Lovely Bones."  And I have to say after the opening description of the terrorist acts I didn't shed one freaking tear reading "Vengeance"

We do a lot of reading at our house, and we read aloud to our children until they became teenagers who then read aloud to us. There were a lot of tears. We all cried together when Kili and Fili died, and don't even get me started about the waterworks that took place reading Bridge to Terabithia! Mom and Dad's tear stains were in our copies of LOTR when they picked it up for themselves. So, the answer is yes, eyes got watery to say the least.

I teared up when Dumbledore died and was shocked at how close I had become to the characters JK Rowling had created.

Currently, I am reading an X-Files book entitled, Devil’s Advocate.  It follows a young Scully who is more open minded and falls prey to a fallen angel.  Yeah ... it’s a young adult book and I curious what the writer is trying to do with one of my favorite fictitious characters.

As for comics, I am reading Murder Falcon.  It’s about a guitar player who summons a chicken god with heavy metal.  It’s crazy fun.  Excellent art and story.  I highly recommend it.  Trade should be out later this year.
