This weekend I’m going to indulge with some heavy reading and gardening.
I have been quite busy these past few weeks, and finally, there is some time to catch my breath and relax.
As always I have big plans, the only difference, at least for this weekend, is that it involves some physical work.
But I’ll start with the mental work.
On the book front, I’m up and running the with the first book of The Hunter’s Blade Trilogy, part of The Legend of Drizzt saga, currently, I’m on page 135, and the primary goal is to finish it by Sunday afternoon.
On the graphic novel front, three astounding books from some of the most legendary writers and artist in the comic book history.
First off, Dark Knight Returns The Last Crusade, written by not one but two legendary powerhouses, Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello and illustrated but non-other that John Romita Jr. It seems like a short story, short but sweet.
Second off, legendary run of Swamp Thing by comic book legend Mr. Alan Moore, accompanied by the psychedelic art of Stephen Bissette.
And finally, The Books of Magic by my favorite writer Neil Gaiman and John Bolton, lending his dark and gritty art to complete a remarkable story.
Concerning my little desert oasis, I have already prep the area to work in, some new flower pots, some new decorative stones, and a whole facelift to be ready for “reading outside season.”
And to start off this weekend with a sonic delight, the new Arctic Monkeys album.
Well, I’m off to read.
