Have any of you guys read "The Leftovers"? I just finished it and would like to hear some other people's opinions.

Alright /books/, I got into an argument over watchmen and how its overrated trash, so I'll be sharing a comic that should have been critically acclaimed and over examined instead of that shit
#4216 to #4138 - anonymous (07/19/2014) [-]
You can say it's overrated but it's definitely not trash

What are you guys favorite books here?
Do you like classics (like me) or do you just read YA stuff like The Fault In Our Stars?
User avatar #4214 to #4129 - ljxjlos (07/18/2014) [-]
What exactly is "YA stuff" supposed to mean? I´ve heart about The Fault in Our Stars, but have no idea what it´s about.

What classics are concerned, it´s like with every kind of book. Some are great, some are shit. Many classics tend to be disgustingly overrated trash, tho. Some are genius.

YA = young adult, I believe.

Hey I'm looking for romantic comics. I recently read one and thought it was cute. It doesn't have to be a comic although I do prefer it, it could also be a book. Doesn't matter if it's gay or straight. I just like the whole cute relationship things. It was porn by the way.

I heard TJ and Amal was good, but I haven't read all the way through it. It has some gay porn, and is relatively romantic.

Anyone an old comic book buff?

I am
User avatar #4199 to #4137 - brackgrapple (07/17/2014) [-]
Would you happen to know the worth of some old comics?
User avatar #4203 to #4199 - HailtotheKing ONLINE (07/18/2014) [-]
Let me give you a few bits of advice from when I tried to trade in my collection.

If it's from the 90'sit's probably not worth much.
If it's not the first issue of a series or the first appearance of a character it's not worth much.
If it's in bad condition it's not worth much.
Look up the names of the comics and see how many were printed. If it's over 5000 it's not worth much.
Collections of stories are worth nothing.
Re-printings are worth nothing.

This is a market where people want to have history. Action Comics #1 went for two million dollars this year because it was the first in a series, was in pristine condition, and was the first appearance of Superman; it's like the holy grail of collecting. Alternatively, you can turn in a dirty copy of Young Blood #14 and not even get enough for a gumball.

Unless you are VERY lucky and find a few old comics stuck up in your attic then you won't get rich in this particular industry. Enjoy them for what they are, don't constantly be looking for a price tag to put on them.

They're some Mister Miracles from back in the day. so I figured they might be worth more than the couple bucks I spent on them
User avatar #4200 to #4199 - hankpym (07/17/2014) [-]
theres books for yhat
User avatar #4201 to #4200 - brackgrapple (07/17/2014) [-]
I dont have the money for said books :c
#4120 - anonymous (07/15/2014) [-]
Shouldn't it be possible reading one book while listening to another?
Shifting focus from one to the other quite often.
User avatar #4125 to #4120 - ljxjlos (07/16/2014) [-]
Do you mean completely at the same time? Lying in bed, reading a book while listening to another one on the iPod? Because that´s kinda ridiculous.
If you mean it otherwise, tho, like reading a book over the day and listeing to another one to fall asleep...that´s possible. Not recommended, but possible.
#4130 to #4125 - anonymous (07/16/2014) [-]
Having two books active isn't odd but I just thought about wether it's possible to grasp the parallell stories while listening to one and reading another

It's ridiculous. no doubtbut still made me think
User avatar #4131 to #4130 - ljxjlos (07/16/2014) [-]
Dunno, tbh, it sounds weird to me - like you don´t fully appreciate either of the books, but that´s just my view on it.
User avatar #4113 - tigery (07/13/2014) [-]
I feel like this is the most over-looked board.... and I have never noticed it O_O

Children of Húrin And everything else by Tolkien, if I took a spot for each one my Top 5 would be Tolkien-only
Wheel of Time the whole series, I´ll just take it as one book because I couldn´t decide on a favorite
Fool on the Hill by Matt Ruff
The Brentford-Triology in seven Parts by Robert Rankin

...can´t decide on a 5th favorite, too many books are on that level. Mistborn, most of Kai Maiers-Triologies, The Dwarves, etc, etc, etc...
