I bought a copy of Caitlin R. Kiernan's novelisation of the new Beowulf movie, and I'm looking forward to reading it, but I couldn't resist starting Stephen Colbert's I Am America (And So Can You!)*. I fully expect Beowulf to be a better, more satisfying read, but sometimes I just need candy. I have to love the warning on the back of the book;
Several reportages of illegal produced issues of this book from Glorious Peoples Republic of China stealing into bookstores. Do not! Buy only likely copies only authorized STEPHEN COLBER'S I AM AMERICA AND SO ARE YOU books like this one itself!
--Yours, U.S.A. Publisher
*The weird grammar of this title actually makes more sense when you read the introduction; "Bottom line: Read this book. Be me."
