[Book Review] Bottomfeeder

by Bob Fingerman

Published:  2006, M Press
My rating:  4 out of 5

Bottomfeeder by Bob Fingerman was gritty, grotesque, laugh-out-loud funny, and somehow (despite the supernatural underpinnings) believable.  I originally discovered this book when looking for something to suggest to my boyfriend for reading on a plane trip, and as he's a fan of Bob Fingerman's graphic novel work, I thought this would be good for him. Then I ended up having it re-recommended to me by him. The circle of stories, or some-such...but I'm glad to have read it.

Do Nothing But Read Day is Saturday, August 6!

It has been said that a book is a vacation you take at home, and who couldn't use a vacation?  Amanda Lanyon-LeSage is hosting another all-you-can-read marathon this Saturday, August 6, 2011.  The rules?  "1) Read.  2) Have fun!"  Sounds easy enough!

Amanda is holding sign-ups at her dedicated blog, Do Nothing But Read Day, and she's also hosting an optional  contest for those who would like to opt in by providing their name and info.  You can find the sign-up form for the event here.

Now I just have to decide which book (or books) to focus on!
