The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
Madame Xanadu, Vol. 3: Broken House of Cards - Matt Wagner, Amy Reeder, Richard Friend, Joëlle Jones The book begins with a young housewife having a series of inexplicable magical moments--her hair starts changing color, insects crawl out of her throat at odd intervals, her clothes start whipping around her as though in a gale. This is by far the best part of the Madame Xanadu series thus far, but it ends far too soon. A loooong series of stories about Nimue and Morgana growing up follows, in which Nimue is perfect in every way and Morgana is evil in every way, blah blah blah so boring I could die. The art is better than the last book, but not good enough to make up for the (yet again) trite storyline and truly terrible dialog.
