The 2017 Reading Thread - THE ULTIMATE EDITION - August

Amidst all the home improvement I still found time to read some funnybooks in July. Gotta keep that going in August!

Rules are simple: Log everything you've read this year. Just edit your existing post or you (and we) will get confused trying to keep up. Bold the stuff you really dig. At the end of each month I'll start a new thread and you can pick a "winner" from your favorite books. You can focus on just trades (which is usually what I do), or just write about the good stuff you've read, or go completely nuts (like I plan to this year) and log EVERYTHING you read.
