I swear, if I keep coughing like this my chest is going to burst open, Alien-style. Already my sternum is so sore that I don't like to breathe too deeply, much less get sucked into another coughing fit.

Accordingly there is quite a lot of extreme comfort reading represented in this post, although I also managed to finish two actual books.

What I've been reading

I read Noble Savages: My Life Among Two Dangerous Tribes—the Yanomamö and the Anthropologists, Napoleon Chagnon's combination memoir/rebuttal. His account of his work is really interesting and well worth reading.

I read Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, and frankly, with so many people dropping dead at young ages, I think Marvel may have been one of the most dangerous places to work in the last forty years. I find it entirely plausible that Stan Lee has reached the advanced age of 90 by sucking the life force from hapless Marvel employees. It is a well-constructed account and I enjoyed the précis of the evolution of the Marvel Universe as much as the behind-the-scenes gossip.

I read Thor: Season One, which is basically a retelling of Thor's origin story with a more contemporary sensibility and art. Young Thor and Young Loki in particular have the prettiest princess hair ever.

I reread Trixie Belden and the Mysterious Visitor, the Mystery Off Glen Road, the Mystery in Arizona, the Mysterious Code, the Black Jacket Mystery and the Happy Valley Mystery. I also found an article examining the Trixie Belden Authorship Question [PDF] which is kind of amazing.

What I'm reading next

I seriously need to look over some things and pull together my Yuletide letter and signup. D:

How is your costal cartilage doing? I used to cough until that ached sometimes. Have you been to the doc yet? Don't get pneumonia.
