Flash! The Associated Press Covers the World
Edited by Vincent Alabiso, Kelly Smith Tunney and Chuck Zoeller
Covers the first 150 years of the AP
Mostly pictures, with a biographical article, a list of AP Pulitzer winners, and an 'honor roll' of AP staff who were killed on the job. A good read, but not a keeper.
Zone-related: The AP's first casualty was Mark Kellogg. He was killed at Little Bighorn. In The 7th is Made Up of Phantoms, you can see his name on the monument.

The 20th Century in Cartoons
Edited by Tony Husband
A very good read if you love political cartoons (like me). They're from all over the world. It's a British book, so a lot of the British cartoons are from Punch magazine. The renowned American cartoonist Herblock is well-represented, too. It's also interesting to see how political cartoons evolved through the century.

The Twilight Zone Scripts of Jerry Sohl
Edited by Chris Conlon
Scripts of the three episodes Sohl ghostwrote for Charles Beaumont--The New Exhibit, Living Doll, and Queen Of The Nile. Interesting reading, but I haven't seen The New Exhibit yet, and I hate the other two.

As Timeless As Infinity: The Complete Twilight Zone Scripts of Rod Serling, Volume Three
Edited by Tony Albarella
This is my mom's; she lent it to me. Has the following: One For The Angels, Time Enough At Last, The Four Of Us Are Dying, Twenty-Two, Death's-Head Revisited, The Changing Of The Guard, On Thursday We Leave For Home, A Kind Of Stopwatch, and The Long Morrow. Has commentary, cue sheets, and photos for each script. The most interesting piece was an alternate version of A Kind Of Stopwatch where McNulty is a bad-tempered brat. Interesting reading overall.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
wasn't sure where King was going to take the story about halfway through
(either weird or really weird) and was pleasantly surprised.
The baseball theme throughout was also fun for me.

On Broadway! Theater Posters
The pages are actually postcards. The posters are from the 40's to the 70's, and there's a brief description of the show on the back. Shows range from best-known (My Fair Lady, West Side Story), to lesser known (A Little Night Music, The Pajama Game) to the occasional flop (Via Galactica). An interesting and quick read; I finished it in under half an hour. Don't think it's a keeper.
I looked for Zone alum, but only found four--Carol Burnett (Once Upon A Mattress), David Wayne (Show Boat revival), Howard da Silva (Fiorello!), and Carmen Mathews (Dear World).

I forgot to add Carol was in two of the shows in the book, the other being Fade Out Fade In.

The World's Most Haunted Places
Another Time-Life checkout counter book. A quick, interesting read, albeit more than a little creepy. Not sure if it's a keeper or not.

Just finished a collection of sayings, maxims, and verse from Poor Richard's Almanack. Got it at the Franklin Institute gift shop on my last visit there (me, mom, and my aunt went to see the Genghis Khan exhibit, it was really good). Spelled in the style of Franklin's day, and illustrated with woodcuts. A good read for if you only have a few minutes.
Who knows what I'll pick up next time I'm there; me and mom plan on going back this winter to see the Vatican exhibit.

What Pet Should I Get?
The kids from One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish have to pick a pet. But it's hard! So many to choose from!
Mom lent this to me. It's a cute, quick read. Classic Seuss.
