Reading progress update: I've read 250 out of 750 pages.
American Gods: A Novel - Neil Gaiman

There are definitely some.....unexpected....encounters so far. Everything still feels separated so I'm hoping the characters start to feel more connected soon.

Reading progress update: I've read 69 out of 384 pages.
Mister X: The Archives - Neil Gaiman,Los Bros. Hernandez,Dean Motter

off and running along the streets, ledges, rooftops, and secret passages of Radiant City...with Mister X! a number of people contributed to this character's adventures over the years, so I've got Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, and Seth chiming in later. right now, it's all about Jaime, Gilbert, and Mario Hernandez--best known for Love And Rockets. I really love the look of films like Brazil and The Trial, plus anything Fritz Lang, so visually, this is a treat for me.

Cinnamon
Cinnamon - Divya Srinivasan,Neil Gaiman

Cinnamon does not talk, she is a princess whose parents offer great riches to any man who can get her to talk. She is blind, she has pearls for eyes. One day, a talking tiger comes to the palace and claims that he can get “the girl-cub to talk” but the people in the palace are afraid of the tiger. The tiger is allowed to stay and Cinnamon goes to the tiger room to see him. I love how Cinnamon approaches tiger and pushes “her fingers into its fur and felt its hot breath on her face.” The tiger has Cinnamon experience things in this room with him, and by the morning, the two of them face Cinnamon’s parents. Her parents are told what occurred in the room overnight and Cinnamon’s future is addressed.

 

A child’s book by Neil Gaiman, yes, I think I will have to read this one. This is a unique story and I really enjoyed the illustrations in this picture book. I thought the facial illustrations were fantastic and I liked the crisp bright colors used on the pages. I think this novel would be good for middle elementary students or older.

Anyone know what these colored triangles mean?  UPDATE — thanks to Grimlock's comment on another post — triangles refer to movement up/down on the chart.
