I was feeling kinda ‘blegh’ yesterday and decided to make a little shift in life. I usually only read comics/graphic novels and lately there has been nothing that I want to read. I only like reading in trades, I have a whole host of problems with single issues, but that’s my thing. I’ve been waiting for some stuff to come out but it just hasn’t been happening.
After I picked up some cat food yesterday, I rounded the corner into one of our local bookstores and told them that I mostly read comics and was looking to get into “regular” books. I mentioned that I was interested in mystery and so I picked up “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Bleeding Hearts”. I haven’t seen the GwDT movies so I should have a fresh take on it. I also know Ian Rankin from his work with the Vertigo Crime Hellblazer book he did that I enjoyed.
I’m hoping that reading something new and different will keep my spirits up and give me a new perspective.
