      Hello, beautiful people. I noticed that this site didn't have a thread on books, or anything like that. Well, I couldn't let that stand. So, here we are. Recommend books and shit.

      Some rules:
      Give a description of the book. What's it about? Is it part of a series?

      Any and all books are allowed! Novels, Comics, (including webcomics) Manga, and whatever else.

      If it's a webcomic, than leave a link so people can check it out. (Warn if it's NSFW)

      I'll start us out. I'm only on the second book right now, but the Matthew Scudder series by Lawrence Block is great so far. Private eye solving mysteries in New York. Narration is spectacular, and it makes Chandler sound like an amateur. If you're in the mood for some sweet Noir goodness, check it out.

      This is a webcomic I can't recommend enough. Lackadaisy.
      Just...wow. This is, to me, not only of the greatest webcomics, but also one of the greatest comics PERIOD. It's set in the roaring twenties, and follows The Lackadaisy Speakeasy, a once great enterprise that's fallen on hard times since the death of it's patriarch, Atlas May. The art starts out just okay, but drastically approves as it goes on, and looks just amazing! (Everybody's a cat for some reason, but just go with it.) The writing is top notch, and you'll find yourself torn over the true aspects of many characters. (Rocky for example. A deranged pyromaniac who'll do anything to get what he wants? Or a worthless, and ultimately harmless pawn?) The update schedule is sporadic unfortunately, but the wait is always worth it.

      "The book thief" its about a young girl and her life during WW2. Its a heart warming, lovely book, not just facts about nazis. Its one of the top 10 book I ever read. And I read a lot.

      Just remembered a great short story by Neil Gaiman called A Study In Emerald. Sherlock Holmes meets H.P. Lovecraft. You can find it for free on his site.

      I just finished reading "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. This book won the Pulitzer Prize, and is a truly amazing (if long) book, with a powerful story and some pretty interesting characters!

      @Zora,

      I agree with you about "The Book Thief". It's a lovely book, and one that I believe everyone should read. Thanks for mentioning it!
