As you know, we are mixing it up this year, by reading four joint books together. The first of these is The Sandman (books 1-20). I suggested this "book" (which are actually books) and you concurred. Sooo... why is The Sandman on my TBR list?
Basically, I am a bit of a graphic novel junkie and The Sandman is a classic in the world of graphic novels. It's one of those "How have I not read this before?!" scenarios like... an English major who realizes they have never read a single work of Shakespeare. So it has long been on my TBR list.
At least, virtually. I've always planned to read these, even though they were not actually, physically, on my shelves. In fact, I had them checked out of the library at the very time that we decided to read these together last October. Soooo... we're getting a little off-track from the actual original "TBR" plan with this, buuut... I have long intended to read these books. So thanks for agreeing to read them with me! :)
It's worth noting that we are reading 1-20, which coincides with either The Absolute Sandman, Vol 1 (1-20) or the first three trade paperbacks: Preludes and Nocturnes (1-8), The Doll's House (9-16), and Dream Country (17-20). But these books continued through to #75. If it's as good as I have heard that it is, I'm not sure we're going to be able to stop at 20. In that case, you can come visit me, we'll get the rest out of my library and read them all together. (Sounds like an awesome weekend, doesn't it?)
