    Any book selections for the year so far? Now that I’m done reading for school, I’m ready to read for fun again…. and I think it’s time to add Dark Knight to the Film list 🙂

    Yes, The Dark Knight needs to be up here along with a few others. Also, as far as books, that is definitely an area we are not as savvy about. We may need to outsource book reviews and recommendations. I have been enjoying The Yiddish Policeman’s Union by Michael Chabon, a hard boiled detective story set in an alternative history where Alaska becomes the sanctuary for displaced Jews after World War 2. Very creative and interesting. It looks like the Coen Brothers have bought the rights to the book and are going to be making a movie of it.
