Book Adventures Weekly, Issue 37

First, an unrelated news item: A map of Americans who do not have health coverage. The data is very interesting, but not at all surprising.

I don’t know about you, but I want to spend part of next weekend at the comic store picking up a few of these comic books starring superheroines. Add to that list the latest SagaLady Killer, Captain Marvel, Jem and the Holograms, Bitch Planet, and Princeless, and I’ve just spent two or three months’ allowance on comics and graphic novels.

It’s Lois McMaster Bujold’s birthday today.

In Science: “Luke” and “Leia” not at all alike – or, Pluto’s moon Charon leaks Ammonia.

BookRiot’s Deal of the Day is Sarah Maclean’s A Rogue By Any Other Name (Amazon Kindle, $1.99). We like Sarah Maclean.

The disappearance of the yeti – more modern living means fewer forays into the yeti’s traditional (legendary) territory.

In “Founding Father Fails,” author Sarah Vowell points out the human failings and inconsistencies of American history’s leading men.

That’s all for this week! As usual, tune in next week for Issue 38. Until then, happy reading.
