I'm reading Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter of Mars". Well I don't think that's the official title, it's a compendium of his first three Mars books. They're rip-roaring yarns, very much of their time. I'm amazed at how closely the movie followed the book, and oh I wish they had marketed it better. The movie wasn't fantastic, but it was an old school adventure tail, and I didn't feel like I wasted my money after seeing it in the theater. (Unlike say "Lawless" more recently.)
It's also a fun commute read because it looks so serious, it's a big book and the cover is fairly calm. And then I see people glance at the title and glance back at me like it wasn't what they expected. Heh.
