17.Feb.2009 Valentine’s Thingies and Mailbox Monday
I’ve never participated in mailbox Monday, because, well, I’ve been trying to avoid more books coming into my house and constructing more unread piles. But this Monday, I received a card from Belezza in the mail for participating in her Japanese Literature Challenge 2. So I’d like to share it here :). Thank you Belezza for the lovely card and the crane earrings (hand-made by her student).
Happy Valentine’s Day to all! My local library has something interesting going on. They wrapped a bunch of books with brown paper and ribbons, with short description of the book handwritten on the wrapping paper. The idea is then for people to have ‘blind dates’ with the mystery books.
Not that I needed any date, because I got married this Valentine’s day…
But still, a mystery book sounded like a treat. So I picked up one that I knew was a graphic novel, so I wouldn’t have to spend so much time on it if I don’t like it.
The text read “A time travelling relatity(? relativity? reality?) hopping team of anarchists fight against the forces of evil in this smart graphic novel!”
The book is Invisibles by Grant Morrison, Steve Yeowell, Jill Thompson, and Dennis Cramer. I’ve never heard of it and it looks political, not my cup of tea. But I’ll give it a shot.
