    I liked it early on but it kind of drug the second half of the book. I'll probably do the rest but right now I've been trying to finish up a lot of my unlistened to audible books before picking up new ones. Because of sales I've picked up a lot of books over the last few years without using my credits. Then I'll decide which series I really want to finish or if I'd rather just use my credits to go and get an series I listened to years ago on CD's from the library but would like to listen to again (like the Dresden Files or Wheel of Time).

    Nothing wrong with that, Celgress. They all look very appealing to me. If there's a problem for me, it's that I need a break between similar-themed books in order to avoid burnout.

    I've picked up another couple of 87th books after reading the first one (I forget the name), but it's quite a list to collect...

    Oh, I'll be reading them for a long, long time, but, IMO, they're worth it.

    Read that back in late October.
    (Had to borrow it from a neighboring library, though, because an actual paper copy wasn't available through Barnes & Noble.)

    First one was Cop Hater which originally came out back in 1956.
    His last one in that series was published in 2005.

    The Gay Metropolis: The Landmark History of Gay Life In America by Charles Kaiser. Reading it as preparation for future instruction. Here in NJ, we'll have to start to teach LGBTQ history starting next year. Definitely feel it's a fascinating read, especially when it places events in historical context. Didn't realize pre Stonewall just how much of a gay culture there was. The interviews are nice as well. Since a lot of the interviews were taken in modern times, the stories are really thorough. What's cool is that some interviewees actually comment on articles or TV programs they produced regarding homosexuality.

    My only complaint is that seems to focus a lot of gay men. Haven't finished it yet, but I see few lesbians, bisexuals, or transgenders mentioned. Also, there are few people of color. Still, I think this is a good starting point. Hope to learn more about this history in the future.
