Masks of the Illuminati is fun. Interesting hooha about Aleister Crowley.
The weirdest moment while readint that book was when they are talking about a picture of this Laylah character would be printed in chapter 77 of Crowleys Book of Lies. Since I own a copy of said book, I pulled it out from the board, opened it up and in fact there is a picture of a woman with the caption L.A.I.L.A.H. in that chapter.
I am not sure who the bigger crackpot was, Crowley or Wilson. Or maybe they are the same timetraveling lizard from Lemuria who is laughing his ass off now while relaxing in a beach resort somewhere on Ibiza.
So I actually two books to recommend - Wearing the Cape and Villians Inc. by Marion C. Harmon. I finished Wearing the Cape and am half way through Villians Inc. Lots of action, great characters - not too much teenage drama - It's about a teenager coming into her superpowers during a terrorist attack and joining kind of like the Justice League of Chicago.

Classy. I didn't know there was such a thing as nice corporate lawyers.
Boo-boo, it's really impressive. How do you manage to be a mom and still have time to read books? or do you hide them in the bathroom and then when you go, just stay there for 20 minutes at a time? I've done that.
Books are the only way I keep my sanity some times and yes - I stay up way to late and sneak away to read them.
Finally new Harry Dresden book is here!! I'm reading Cold Days and Harry is back! Yea!!
Wow, I thought that series was kaput!
How is it?
I'm only half way through but I'm really enjoying it. It's confusing right now what exactly is going on but I'm enjoying the twists. I hate it when you can figure out the end of a book.
I like the conflict of trying to keep down the darkness of being the Winter Knight.
Sounds like a trip to the bookstore is in order, then!
Thanks for sharing it, Boo-Boo!
Finally new Harry Dresden book is here!! I'm reading Cold Days and

Subject: Umberto Eco's "The prague cemetary" & Guiness "Extra Stout"
Wanted to read the book since the day it came out, but forgot to buy it. A few days ago I found it in one of my favourite book shops and had to get it. Bought the paperback from Vintage books, it was cheap but is overall finest quality: embossed frontpage, supreme paper, really good images. Irish or french monastery beer will match perfectly. Also a good french wine, if you prefer that.
The story is set around 1890 and is told by a person who seems to forge documents for a living. Read up about it if you like or just start reading, the summaries tend to spoil too much. After all, this is Umberto Eco, why would you need any more info wether it is good or not ;)

I've found posts to be too apathetic for tagging, though.
Yes, but their posture is great!
Cinco de Maio has come and gone since the last activity in this room. Did anyone have the requisite Corona? (I usually do, but missed this year. I don't always drink beer, but when I do ... I prefer imported brews.)
I didn't have a Corona, never new about this tradition.
But I read an awful lot of books since my last post here, most of them were as kitchy as expected, lots of them were rather overhyped but one of them genuinely and positively surprised me. Will write about some of those when I have beer at home, soon.
What I didn't know about Corona is that its most common nickname is "cougar piss."
It seems to be widespread knowledge. Too bad, I like Corona.
