  • Beach beauties : postcards and photographs,… by Dunlop, Beth,
    ★★★☆☆

    Nothing shocking or insightful, just a collection of old-time postcards.  The most interesting part to me was glossed over rather quickly - early postal laws about the use and distribution of postcards that restricted them for years until a new act freed them and exploded the popularity.  Anyone know a good book on postal-law history?

  • The unworthy Thor by Aaron, Jason,
    ★★☆☆☆

    Disappointing compared to Aaron's other work.  Mopey Thor is not an entertaining Thor.

  • Aliens
    ★★★★★

    James Cameron's follow-up to the Ridley Scott classic that formed the template for his Terminator sequel and countless imitators  - everything bigger, loudy and more explody the second time around.

    ★★★★★

    Terrifying space-horror with an all star cast that established tropes still fashionable 40 yeas later.

  • Teen Titans. by Bedard, Tony,
    ★★☆☆☆

    The only good thing about it is that it is the last volume of this particular installment. Possibly the rebirth version will be better, although  I don't hold out to much hope considering that the preview issue indicates that Starfire will once again be involved, and she is a thoroughly useless character.

  • The Pennsylvania Dutch by Wallower, Lucille,
    ★★★★★

    Simplistic, but appropriate for it's intended middle-school target in that it gives an overview of the different sects and styles of living. More helpful to the adult reader is the extensive bibliography and the list of (possibly outdated) tourist attractions.
