Sunday Book Thread

Happy 2012, Morons! (2012? We're now 11 years past 2001 and we still don't have a moonbase or missions to Jupiter or a weird alien monolith turning astronauts into cosmic babies? What the hell, man? Where's the future I was promised? I want my alien artifacts and domed cities and jetcars and moonbases, and I want them now, dammit!)

I have a confession to make: I've been on vacation for the past two weeks, and I haven't read so much as the back of a box of corn flakes. Zip. Nada. This isn't due to lack of time so much as a complete lack of motivation. There is an old Far Side cartoon where a kid asks to be excused from class because his brain is full; that's how I feel. Too much going on at work and at home, too many things weighing on poor Monty's noodle. So for my vacation I gave the life of the mind the heave-ho and just vegged out -- slept in until noon, sat around in my underwear all day eating cereal and watching cartoons; it was like being nine again!

So, assuming that you Morons were better stewards of the literary art than me in the past week...what have you been reading?

PSA: I have several more books written by Morons (or by friends/significant others of Morons) to post, and I'll make sure to get them into next week's thread. Keep those tips coming! If you're an author, or you know an author who'd like a mention in the Sunday book thread, just send me an email at aoshqbookthread AT gmail DOT com.

Just because, here's a picture of a cat riding a turtle.

Happy New Year!
