This Weeks Reads

The Poe Estate by Polly Shulman (Goodreads)

I'm almost done with this one. I did not know until I was doing this post that it was part of a series. It reads well and I have not felt like I was missing anything from the previous two books.

Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul- Jabbar & Anna Waterhouse (Goodreads)

This was more a curiosity pick than anything. Holmes stories tend to be hit and miss for me. My first thought when I saw this was "Is that the basketball player" (it is). Then I saw him on tv talking about how he became interested in Sherlock Holmes and why he wrote the story and it made me more curious about it. Hoping to start this one this week but with Thanksgiving may not get much reading in.

Some Thursday Randomness

Around the Web

There has been a lot of these, some better than others, but I liked the use of old movie clips in this one.

I liked the first movie and I'm glad this one is bringing back my favorite character (the queen). I also really like the posters for the two queens.


Came across Scott Wade (swadeart) just recently, thanks to DeviantArt's main page. You can also find him on Tumblr here
