As many as you know I love to read. I consider books to be one of my best friends because they can show you new things and keep you up way past your bedtime. Also my birthday is next month in October so this list is also for those who would like to get me something but have no idea what to get me. What better gift to give than the gift of reading. This list is also for those who want to start a new read but do not know what to get. Here are five recommendations:
Maryland Monster Movie Memories: Baltimore-Washington Area Horror Hosts and More! by John Carter Stell- Being from the area I felt like this was a must wish list item. Even though I was not part of the horror movie host area. I am a fond admirer of it and would like to learn more about the hosts that were in the area.
Dangerous Rhythms: Jazz and the Underworld by T.J. English: interesting in learning about the crime world during the Jazz Age. Then this is a must read!

Knock Offs Totally Unauthorized Action Figures by Brian Heiler: I am huge fan of bootleg and interesting action figures. So when I learned there was a book about it I knew I had to add this to this list!
Alice A Novel by Blake Butler: I was walking through a book store one afternoon and read the back of the book and it caught my attention. It reminds me a bit of an Ira Levin (who is one of my favorite authors) novel.

The Chick and the Dead: Life and Death Behind Mortuary Doors by Carla Valentine. Were you ever curious what happens after someone dies? Well this is a great read to those who want to know!
See you at San Diego: An Oral History of Comic-Con, Fandom, and the Triumph of Geek Culture by Stan Sakai and Jeff Smith. I always wanted to go Comic-Con but until then I can live vicariously through this book.
