"Tales From Development Hell", a book comprised of 12 stories of films that never made it, or had bizarre long paths from the first script to the finished film. It was written in 2003/4 so there's some stuff that's out of date (they talk about Total Recall 2, for one, as Arnie was up for doing it until 1999 or so), but it's a fun read.

Then, back onto the complete Edgar Allan Poe. I just finished the poetry section, and while there's not a lot to like (aside from the classics, obviously) I'm really looking forward to the stories.

Just finished Brock Lesnar's autobiography "DeathClutch", written with Paul Heyman.  Very disappointing.  A poorly written pamphlet that I made it through in 3 sittings. 

To cleanse my pallet of that, I just started simultaneously working my way through 2 much heavier books.  The first is a coffee-table book called "Picturing New York: The City From Its Beginnings to the Present".  The second is called "What Ifs? of American History: Eminent Historians Imagine What Might Have Been".  Both interesting reads so far, although the latter is a bit dry and scholarly and I've read some more entertaining alternate realities in the past.

Just started "Darwin's Armada: Four Voyages and the Battle for the Theory of Evolution".  Seems interesting.

Just finished Y: The Last Man series (60 issues/10 TPBs) by Brian K. Vaughn. Excellent read. I understand that a movie adaptation has been in the works since 2007 and they are currently looking for a director.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y_The_Last_Man

Just revisited Preacher by Garth Ennis.

From Wikipedia...

Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer, a preacher in the small Texas town of Annville. Custer was accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named Genesis in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preacher_%28comics%29

I am about 1/2 way through the 75 issue series.

There is some inter-mingling between the 2 series. The 2 main characters in each series own a zippo lighter with "Fuck Communism" engraved upon it. There are also a few brief shoutouts to Preacher in Y: The Last Man.

Just read the ESPN Book, "These Guys Have all the Fun". Took me a month since I can only read small bits at a time. Don't bother with it. A complete waste of time.

I started reading "The Other Wes Moore, one name, two fates".  It describes the life of two young men, both from the same city and similar circumstances, and with the same name, who follow divergent paths toward astonishingly different destinies. One Wes Moore grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other Wes Moore is serving a life sentence in prison for felony murder.

I finished this book and I have to say, it was a good read.  I was surprised how open the prisoner and his family were in discussing his childhood with this guy.

Just finished Peter Criss' autobiography "Makeup to Breakup". What a fucking whiner.

- Implies that Paul and Ace are bisexual, and thinks he may have gotten a drug-induced blow job from Ace.
- Put a gun in his mouth and nearly pulled the trigger after the Northridge earthquake destroyed his apartment.
- Spent time in a psychiatric hospital.
- Says that Paul and Gene pretty much hate each other, and get along only to keep the band together.
- Claims he got screwed money-wise at every turn on the Reunion tours. He got 10 percent to Ace's 20 percent, the reason given was that Ace once won an award from Guitar magazine.

etc. etc.

Just started "The Last Testament: A Memoir by God" by David Javerbaum.  Absolutely hilarious spoof of the Bible in the form of God's updated autobiography.  Almost every page has at least one laugh-out-loud line.

Winter of the World by Follet. So far, it is OK. Not as good as Fall of Giants. It feels much more superficial. It is entertaining though.

Just finished up The Legend of Drizzt Book I: Homeland by R.A. Salvatore. I have resolved to read all 16 books in the series this year.
