Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
I've yet to read anything by either one of these authors, yet I've heard such good things about Neil Gaiman. In fact I loved both Stardust and Coraline, movies based on his books. I even believe my mom read this once and really enjoyed it. So needless to say I'm really excited that this is our book club book next month!
Birdmen by Lawrence Goldstone
Taken from the subtitle this is about "The Wright Brothers, Glenn Curtiss, and the Battle to Control the Skies." While I obviously know of the Wright Brothers, I haven't heard of Glenn Curtiss before. And what I do know about the Wright Brothers is pretty limited, so I'm hoping to learn a lot with this.
Steve Jobs' Life By Design by George Beahm
This is about the commencement address Steve Jobs gave at Stanford in 1995. While I'm sure the address is in here, it looks to go deeper than that and explores some of the history and life events that contributed towards writing it. Definitely sounds like one that will be inspirational.
What did you find in your mailbox this week? And have you seen any movies based on Neil Gaiman's work?
