The Making of Star Wars
Just started this last night and the book is fucking packed. I think it will take a year to read it cover to cover. Looks like the Making of Empire is scheduled for release in the fall. I best get busy.

The spin on this 'Making of' book is that 90% of it is comprised of archived interviews and notes pulled from before the film's release giving a fresh perspective on the film before it became a juggernaut. I'm only 15 pages in and it's already super fascinating.

I also picked up American on Purpose by Craig Ferguson. I think I'll start that this weekend.

That cover art for Blockade Billy is pretty great.

I haven't read anything by King in a long time... how was it? Good?

I've heard similar rumblings about UNDER THE DOME. I haven't read King in a very long time, but I've always loved his voice. The last thing I read that he wrote was the Green Mile when it was coming out in the monthly novellas.

I think I'll take a trip to the bookstore (aka amazon) and pick these up.

Yeah, a lot of people loved it. Not me, I thought it really dragged, but here at least I was clearly in the minority.

While the final reveal left a lot to be desired, the book as a whole was definitely King's best work in quite some time. Big Jim Rennie was was the most evil & sadistic bastard this side of Pennywise and Randal Flagg.

If you've ever wondered whether the US military could stand up to intelligent dinosaurs, this book is for you.
