These are the two Lovecraft books I checked out from the library. They were the only two Lovecraft books available to check out at the branch I go to:

The Annotated H.P. Lovecraft: H.P. Lovecraft: 9780739489017: Amazon.com: Books

H. P. Lovecraft: Tales (Library of America): H. P. Lovecraft, Peter Straub: 9781931082723: Amazon.com: Books

Are these cool? Haven't even looked at the contents very closely, although I think that one of them contains At The Mountains Of Madness.
An annotated book might be a little distracting while you're first reading it, if I had anything specific to point out.

That looks fancy.

I bought this on a whim in the early '00's while at a Borders:

The Best of H. P. Lovecraft: Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre: H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch: 9780345350800: Amazon.com: Books

I think the "whim" was partially based on the Metallica song, partially on the front and back covers' artwork, partially on the description of the stories on the back cover. I was not disappointed. Have been a big fan since, I've even watched that silent black and white Call of the Cthulhu film that was on Netflix.

Speaking of horror, I finally started reading The Passage. Enjoying it.

That's like the copy of the book, isn't it?

I had been dating a guy for a short while, and I just called it off. I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet his mom, because his mom is Annie Fucking Proulx. She just recently moved to the area from Wyoming.

Oh well.
was it Elbow guy??

It was implied in how I just stopped talking about him all of a sudden.

IT WAS IMPLIED!!!

Guys... I'm not gonna be a librarian. They sent me a letter of rejection. But, I had a surprise phone call and subsequent surprise job interview today, so I might be a bank teller instead.

Anyway, I've been reading Mockingjay. It's still exciting, but after the last two books having the Hunger Games themselves as the central event, this one seems like it's not really going anywhere very fast. I know it's probably leading up to some big thing that's going to happen at some point, though.

Hey, at least you went for it, and at least they let you know. I hate when you get an interview and they say nothing.

What is the protocol for meeting a guy who has written a book (self-published, but good for him) and he's mildly flirting with you and suggests we have coffee after I've finished the book to debrief (i.e., hey, let's have a coffee date) ... and then you read the book and it's just awful?

Cool concept, but I hate his style and the characters are all just awful. I'm going to have to practice some diplomacy.

Ouch. I feel bad mildly critiquing Travis' stuff and I like his writing. I can't imagine what I'd do if I hated one of Travis' books.

I'm only halfway through. Maybe it'll have a cool twist or something. He said it was the first of a trilogy. (Oh dear.)
