I had the realization that the comix I was having such a hard time finding (Brian Wood's "DMZ" series, issues 7-12) were probably available online, and I had a shiny new iPad, so... BAM. I downloaded them.
And then I walked into a record store on Tuesday... and bought two books. Chrissie Hynde's autobiography, and a bio of Motorhead that seems to have some new stuff in it.
I also picked up all of my friend Adam LeBor's spy series, and my other friend Olen Steinhauer's spy books, too. They were both good friends of mine back in Budapest, who were working on their first books at the same time. (Olen also has a TV series in production with some big names in it...)
