I absolutely loathe the new 52 and am shocked Marvel will be ripping it off after Secret War.

Andrew Dice Clay's autobiography is a light and entertaining read and I'm on the last few chapters.

I'm also reading the 700 page "Madison and Jefferson" by Andrew Burstein, which is the definitive volume on the relationship between our 3rd and 4th Presidents.

 Some of the books that I have read in the last couple of months.

 

Firebird by Jack McDevitt. I always like the way his mysteries start off in one direction and then go off in another total different direction.

The Golem and The Jinni by Helene Wecker. This one was really done well. I thought it pretty original.

 Wrestling With The Past by Paul "The Butcher" Vachon. I didn't realize this was the third book of three. This one was alright, but I think I would have liked the first two books better. This gave a little insight into what Verne Gagne was like.

Even This I Get to Experience by Norman Lear. This one was o.k.. I did like his thoughts on Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin and on working with Carol O'Connor. The more you read the book, the more you realized how much Lear was in love with himself.

I Did It My Way by Bud Grant. After reading this one, I see Bud Grant completely different. I would have like to have heard more team stories.

Almost finished with "Dead Wake" about the sinking of the Luisitania.  Wow, what an amazing read.  Written by my favorite author Erik Larson, who also wrote "The Devil in the White City", "In the Garden of Beasts" and "Thunderstruck", each one a masterpiece, so I'm not surprised at how good this one is.  All of his books are must reads.

Buzz- A Year of Paying Attention.

This is a must read book for any parent whose kid has been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD like my youngest one.

Once I'm done with the above book, I have Adios America by Ann Coulter.

Just read Stephen Davis' unauthorized biography of Guns N' Roses and it was by far the best written and researched that I've come across. Phenomenal rock 'n' roll book.

Now I'm re-reading Heinlein's classic "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" and damn if it isn't even better than I remember it. Heinlein might be my favorite author ever.

Ordered this off Amazon-"Thin Ice-A Season in Hell with the New York Rangers" by Larry "Ratso" Sloman. 

I'm about 2/3 done with it and it's a great read.  It's the 1979-80 hockey season and Ratso pals around with Greschner, Beck, Murdoch, Espo and the Swedes while they chase tail,  drink copious amounts and try to understand the weirdness of Freddie Shero while trying to get back to the Stanley Cup Finals.  Highly recommended.

Just read "the rogue lawyer" by John Grisham, as are all Grisham novels it was quite entertaining and a fun read.

I'm completely out of the comics loop and have been just about since the New 52 happened...probably even a few years before that, sat 2004/2005. Did I see a rumor recently that Gordon is now Batman?

Did I see a rumor recently that Gordon is now Batman?I know he donned a retarded suit of armor to become Batman when Bruce "died".(The suit looked dumb as hell, at least in the 90s the Azrael Batman's suit looked decent this suit looked like a suit made for Captain Carrot)  I don't know the particulars or of he still is because I loathe what DC and Marvel put out today.  I only read the Gordon of Gotham because it was given to me.  I really tried to give these new comics a chance but they suck.
