Want to see some hot male librarians?  Look no further!  On this website you can find the Men of the Stacks calendar, featuring guys who have looks and brains.  The calendar is only $20 and all procedes go to the It’s Gets Better Project.

This is such an awesome idea.  You go, Men of the Stacks!

Random awesome covers:

Two upcoming releases from Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant!  While I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read Deadline yet (it’s sitting on my TBR pile), I am really looking forward to Blackout, the final book in the Newsflesh trilogy.  The blurb for Discount Armageddon also sounds very intriguing:

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

Cryptid, noun:

1. Any creature whose existence has been suggested but not proven scientifically. Term officially coined by cryptozoologist John E. Wall in 1983.

2. That thing that’s getting ready to eat your head.

3. See also: “monster.”

The Covenant of St. George was founded to uphold one simple ideal: anything that was not present on the Ark—anything they deemed “unnatural”—needed to be destroyed. Monsters. Creatures of myth and legend. All of them would be wiped from the Earth in the name of Man’s dominion. Unfortunately for them, not all the monsters agreed with this plan…and neither did all the human beings.

After their rather abrupt departure from the Covenant, Alexander and Enid Healy found themselves alone in the world, but with a simple mission of their own: to protect the cryptids of the world from those who would harm them without just cause. It was a cause that would eventually claim both their lives, leaving their children, and their childrens’ children, to take up the fight. Now in the modern day, their descendants struggle to stay beneath the Covenant’s radar, while defending the cryptids from humanity—and humanity from the cryptids.

Discount Armageddon comes out March 6, 2012, and Blackout will be released June 7, 2012.

Random awesome video:

This movie looks so good!  I’m sort of disappointed that they replaced Edward Norton as the Hulk, but I’ll live with it.

Now I need to get caught up on Thor and Captain America yet before The Avengers comes out!
