Teenage super-hero has teenage problems
Pix Volume 1: One Weirdest Weekend - Gregg Schigiel

 

 

This is a comic collection which, despite its 21st century technology, takes us back to teenage comics of the 60s and 70s. Pix is a super-hero, fighting monsters of various sorts, with a magical connection. She also faces the usual teenage problems of boyfriends, girlfriends, dating etc..

 

Nothing particularly special, this should appeal to teenage girl readers: it is visually easy-going and the writing is lightweight.

The Wonderful Weekend Book
The Wonderful Weekend Book: Reclaim Life's Simple Pleasures - Elspeth Thompson

One of my impulse buys from the library sale, I thought it would be a fun source of inspiration for new weekend activities.  

 

As it turns out, the author and I are apparently on the same page when it comes to ways of enjoying a weekend:  most of the things she recommends or suggests are things we already do, to some extent.  Except learning to play the ukulele - er, no thanks, I'll pass on that one.  Still, MT and I are guilty of the weekly Sunday shop; something both he and I dread, and even though we take advantage of farmer's markets, there's just always something on the list that can't be gotten without a supermarket trip.  (We're not quite ready to trust online grocery shopping yet, either.)

 

There are a lot of good ideas here, helpfully broken down by season and all-year-round activities.  While the ideas are universal to all, the main drawback is that the book is entirely UK-centric, providing liberal lists of UK sources and the author's anecdotes about great places to stay or things to do in the UK.  The debate about how worthwhile it is to go to France to stock up on alcohol seems a particularly moot one to someone living in Australia (or anywhere else that isn't Europe for that matter).

 

Frankly, it's not a book I'd say is worth buying in the shops, but if your library has it, or like me, you find it for a buck at the library sale, it's not a bad source for ways to mix your weekend up a bit.

Got this in time for my long weekend
Ichi-F: A Worker's Graphic Memoir of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant - Kazuto Tatsuta

I have a three-day weekend, starting Friday, and so far my plans include:

  • The Mystic Marriage by Heather Rose Jones - Daughter of Mystery made me wish I'd started it at the beginning of a long weekend, so I'm going to try to do The Mystic Marriage right.
  • Ichi-F: A Worker's Graphic Memoir of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant by Kazuto Tatsuta - I wasn't expecting our Acquisitions Librarian to purchase this one so soon, but now it's in my hand. Yay! We'll see how this goes. I haven't read much nonfiction manga, but what little I've tried I generally haven't managed to finish. This one's a brick - it was originally released in Japan in three volumes.
  • Digging into my huge backlog of games on Steam - I want to play more Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble, and I think I might have some Higurashi: When They Cry.
