One of my best friends is moving to Liverpool next month (the traitor), so he asked if I wanted any of his books since he wasn't taking them... stupid question 😅
I have graphic novels or days now 😀 If I get through my latest picks for my #TBRChallenge I'll be getting a start on some of these methinks 😊

shanaqui Ahhh, Civil War Captain America/Iron Man is heartbreaking, IIRC! Or... I might be thinking of Civil War Iron Man -- whichever one has Tony's confession to [spoiler]'s dead body.

I really need to try more Wonder Woman!
TrishB A wonderful place to move to 😁😁 3w
Moony Oh this pile looks so great! 3w

I listened to this on my drive to D.C. this weekend, and then went to his restaurant on Sunday! His book is as great as his food. Those braised oxtails, mmmmmm... 🖤

Eyelit Nice haul 😁 Please tell me more about this Buffy/Firefly crossover!! 1mo
bookandcat @Eyelit turned out it was just a preview of two separate comics that are running (one for Firefly one for Buffy), I was bummed by the way it was promoted :-( that being said if you want a really fun comic crossover, Star Trek and Doctor Who once did one together 😂 1mo
Clwojick What! 30/$10 is such a good deal! Mine only had 25%off 1mo

Devoured this quick listen in one day. Alyssa shares her experience, and growing pains, of being a woman in a leadership role in politics. I appreciate her candor, humor, and advice. I always love some good Obama stories. 😊 #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterW #ReadingUSA2019 #DC

I read the Wonder Woman one a while ago and so I picked this up. Catwoman teams up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn to rob Gotham. It was a fun read and an interesting take on the comics. #DC #Catwoman #PoisonIvy #HarleyQuinn #YA

Just received an email confirming my #BOTM has shipped, which reminded me that Politics & Prose will be hosting the author in conversation tomorrow night! (If I didn‘t have a prior engagement with my grandmother, I‘d definitely be there because I‘m super excited to read this book.) 📦📚

For any interested #DC & #DMV Littens ⤵️

In The Threat, McCabe systematically demonstrates how the FBI goes about investigating by discussing some of the past cases he has worked on. He also reveals how it does not work, in a clear, unblemished refutation and rebuke of Trump. While I do think he idealizes the FBI and it‘s people a bit, the book is strong and damning.

Kaye You‘re doing great 3mo
Librarybelle I‘ve been tempted to read this... 3mo
NatalieR Sounds interesting. Stacked! 3mo
Hooked_on_books @Librarybelle There are so many books about 45 out there, but this one is really worth it. And it‘s interesting to learn how the FBI does things—he clearly truly loves the organization. 3mo
Librarybelle Okay...you‘ve sold me on this! Stacking! 3mo

The Death of Superman made me cry and I couldn't sleep while I was reading it. I am reassured that it isn't the end of Superman--thank goodness!!! #superman #superhero #comics #dc #vintage
