Field and fountain.
We're kicking into high gear here at the Bookshelf, but back on my side of things, I've started thinking about slowing down. Yesterday was my last day teaching for the semester, which means I've just got two big stacks of papers to grade next week. It's the one part of the job that I really don't relish. Then again, it beats cleaning up a frankly alarming amount of adult feces in the Bookshelf bathroom. #smallbusiness
The holiday season is now upon us, and I hope you'll remember The Bookshelf when you're shopping for your loved ones. We have excellent books, adorable ornaments and gifts, and did I mention we wrap and ship? Let us be your indie bookstore. Shop here.
Chris's Media Log
I'll be real. I binged a bunch of comic books this week because work and life are stressful and they're my only escape. I started working on revisions for an article that's supposed to come out next year, but then I got distracted and started "productive procrastination" by revising my course syllabus for next semester, which was definitely useful! But also not what I was supposed to be doing. Anyway, Bendis's Dark Avengers series is blah, and I still only care about Marvel Boy.

No "Annie's Quick Review" this week because we spent the afternoon recording and there just wasn't time to crank one out, BUT our Lemonade and Mint Julep patrons can check out a trove of new Deleted Content on our podcast website that just got posted this morning.
