American Gods | Neil Gaiman

This comes up from time to time and I‘m happy to see Gaiman‘s take on this. Every once in awhile and author will say that unless you‘re paying full price for a book you‘re stealing from them. This leads other authors have to jump in to defend libraries and used book stores AND remind people not to pirate books because that‘s what really hurts them. I love own books but I can‘t buy every one I read, and I definitely can‘t do it at full price.

CrowCAH A nice way to think of “used” books. 22h
Tamra Amen! 21h
SpaceCowboyBooks As a used bookseller I find it strange when authors don't like used bookshops. Everyday I turn new readers onto people's work, and most of us host reading events. I also often rescue books that would otherwise be pulped. 21h
jpmcwisemorgan @CrowCAH I agree! @Tamra I second that! @SpaceCowboyBooks I don‘t understand either. Fortunately, I‘ve not seen some of my favorite authors be jerks about used books. One even asks how people found their books and never seems to mind that a lot of us say used or the library. 18h

Loved this collection of stories by Gaiman💚 It was even more enjoyable because I listened to the audiobook narrated by him. 😁

Great mixture of fantasy and fairy-tale fun.

jackilynn I have found myself listening to his works more and more simply because he does the narration. His voice is so soothing. 3d

Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. I love most of his work, and like a few pieces.

It's rare that I intensely dislike any of his work. Unfortunately, this is one of those cases. This is the second time I've read this story—I wouldn't have picked this up, had I remembered.

The artwork in this graphic novel edition is stunning.

What do you do when it's your birthday in the middle of your work week? Well an unexpected trip to the library! Where you find some Neil Gaiman in the good ol graphic novel section. And while the kids do dishes and the boyfriend plays his video game you start reading said find from the library!!! Happy birthday to me!

I did not plan this year well. Opted into 4 challenges and set myself a target of 52 books. So far I‘ve got down to 62 just to be able to do the challenges🙄 Crossed off two on the Coffee & A Good Book Challenge:

Audiobook: The Spotted Dog by Kerry Greenwood
Turned into a TV Show: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman's retelling of Snow White. This story is dark (but I liked it). And the artwork is BEAUTIFUL! 😍

I have a book that I‘m excited to read and I woke up sick today. It started with a sore throat and has turned into aches and my skin hurts. Hopefully I can manage a good nights sleep and relax tomorrow.

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this book. It contains an interesting overview of ancient gods from around the world, wrapped in an action-filled story.
