Recently purchased a favorite series I read when I was younger, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Bunch of short entertaining horror stories. By far the best part was the illustrations, anyone remember these?

That's quite a coincidence. I was actually just looking at those books not even a week ago. Apparently they were quite controversial back-in-the-day?! Loved reading them when I was younger, and the artwork alone was enough to give most kids nightmares.

Great book. I remember The Thing scaring the shit out of me. I remember The Big Toe being kind of lollerific. And The Viper being really silly/stupid. The illustrations were sick in a good way.

Les Miserables, on about page 700 so far, quite good.

I've got a little over 200 pages left. I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I had bought "Brimstone" about 3 months ago and was having trouble getting into it. It's 2 books after this one in the series, so I'm glad I picked this up because it introduced the character (he actually was introduced in Relic and was in Reliquery, but he is just a minor character in those two, not the main protagonist, so I'm not worried right now about reading those two), so now when I get to Brimstone, I'll be able to get into it with no problem (as soon as I finish this book, I'm going to pick up the next one). I just recently found this series of books and am looking forward to reading the rest of them.

I think I read that in middle school. It's by the same guy that wrote Encyclopedia Brown, right?

I was unaware that Victor Hugo had written L'Encyclopédie Brune

Here is the kind of stuff Dwayne Day usually writes about:

Evolution of American Reconnaissance Systems.

Notice how much the beastie on the right looks like the Hubble Space Telescope.

Oh, btw, party at the NRO, next Saturday night.

Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock. Only a chapter in so it's hard to say if it's any good, but it seems interesting.

I'm digging into "Brideshead Revisited, The Sacred & Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder" by Waugh. I believe it was published in 1942. I'm just enjoying the language they are using. I'm pretty tired of the pop culture and pidgin I hear daily. I found this book while browsing through a library during my lunch hour while trying to unwind. I was looking for books with unique covers. It started off as a war novel but now it seems to be going other places. I'll see how it goes.

Dude, go back to school or something, lol. Hugo definitely wrote both. In fact, IIRC many of the Les Miserables chapters were actually standalone Encyclopedia Brown stories compiled into novel format.
