The Art of Controversy: Political Cartoons and Their Enduring Power - Victor S Navasky

You think this would have been more interesting.

 

And seriously, as someone from Philadelphia, I am insulted that Tony Auth was not listed.

 

Would have been more interesting if the author had put far less of himself in this book. While the individual sections on cartoonists were somewhat interesting, they were not really detailed.  You actually learn more about the author than anything else.

Controversy and Hope: The Civil Rights Photographs of James Karales
Controversy and Hope: The Civil Rights Photographs of James Karales - James H Karales When I actually get the physical book, I will come back with a better review once I get through the whole book! I just wanted to give my thought on the book I got in e-book form. I just wanted to buy the book, experience it the way it should be, then do a better review then.

Initial Review of E-Book:
I was very Fortunate to get the book through Netgalley and was able to read through majority of it on my Kindle. I really do love learning about the Civil Rights Movement of the 50's and 60's. I will be trying to get the hard copy of the book into my hands as soon as I can so that I can truly appreciate the book the way it was truly meant to be! I was able to find it on Amazon and put it into my cart and waiting for my book budget to open back up again! :-)

Semi-Migration A Success; Acclimatization Ongoing

As a long-time lurker and recently active Goodreads member, not really having any stakes in the matter, I watch the chaos unfolding and escalating there with some wide-eyed, popcorn-munching enjoyment tinged with sadness even I'm surprised at. The 'rents are fighting, and it's not a pretty sight. It's sad because of how, had Goodreads had thicker skin, stupidly unnecessary this whole hot mess of affairs, once so easily side-stepped, has been.

Book Review: The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, #3)
The Amber Spyglass - Philip Pullman

There was going to be the greatest of battles. Favorite characters would struggle and triumph, despised ones fight and fall. Entire worlds would then retire to happy endings. Readers, with contentment, would gently close the books, or put down their e-readers, and go be heavily in thought under shower heads. Then fealties to Philip Pullman would, by the skeptical and the undecided, be unequivocally and cheerfully declared. How he rose up to his challenge, putting together a crazily ambitious trilogy of exciting adventures and even bolder themes, with The Golden Compass as its surefooted first step, pointed to nothing less than an explosive and satisfying conclusion, a comeuppance long overdue. Maybe my fancies got ahead of myself. But how could they not? The Golden Compass left me impressed and restless for more; The Subtle Knife didn't disappoint, either, and still held my undivided attention.
