Well… What a twist! After reading close to nothing during the Summer (even before then I didn’t read all that much), I’m coming back with a big September wrap-up! I mean big for me, I usually never read this much. But I like it! I caught up on some of the comic trades I had hanging around for a while, I read a book that was on my shelf for 3 years (Naming the Bones), a new-ish —from this year at least— release (Armada), and some other stuff.
Not very heavy on the movie department, though. I’ve been having a hard time committing 2 hours of my time to a film, when tv episodes are 40-60 minutes. Speaking of TV, why didn’t anyone tell me how incredibly fantastic and good The Newsroom was? I’ve been obsessed.

5 books/novels, 5 comic book trade paperbacks, 1 short story, 4 movies, 1 short film.
Good reading month all in all. Some variety of genre and format, some good, some not so much… Let’s hope I can keep up and continue reading consistently.
