What Do Guys Looooove?

Hey, readers guys, it's Carl. Fisrt off, let me correct an error--I had meant to put a link to Kurtis Scaletta's site on that post from Saturday. He was good enough to let us interview him and I wanted to link to his site so we could follow his progress as he waits for his book to come out. Check it out here or in the links on the left-hand side of the page.

Secondly--drum roll, please--The Demigod Files comes out TOMORROW!!!! Wahooo!!!

Thirdly, we all know that Saturday is Valentine's Day, the holiday devoted (yeesh!) to looooovvve. Now we manly guys at the Boys Read blog have no objection to looooovvve;, after all, Darth Bill got married not long ago, Master Jedi Zack got engaged recently, and I've been married for a long time. But all this talk about loooovvve got me to thinking---what do GUYS love? I mean, what do guys really LOVE? What about

video games?
superhero movies?
pizza buffets?
really close basketball/football/baseball/soccer games?
books with lots of action and adventure (the librarian in me had to ask that)

This all sounds like real GUY stuff to me. Did I leave anything out? Can you think of anything else? Write and let us know! And vote on the poll on the left-hand side of the page.


Let's hear it, manly men!

The Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones is a good book by HELLEN HEMPHILL! Yes, I did go to her workshop at Imaginon. The book is filled with action and adventure. The story starts when Prometheus Jones and Homer Shine win a horse in a raffle. They got the ticket from LaRue and Pernie Boyd Dill, two dumb rednecks, who said there was no way they were gonna let a black man, even though he was born on the day of the Emancipation Proclamation and was free from his first breath, keep that horse. Prometheus and Omer (that's what they called Homer) then jump on and ride that horse to Texas where they join a cattle drive. Many adventures happen while they drive the cattle to Deadwood in the Dakota Territory. Once they get to Deadwood, those two rednecks show up and accuse Prometheus of stealing the horse. Read the book! Read it!
