Whether or not the feeling sticks around when I read the book, I'm currently enjoying the giggly fanboy twitter of having just bought a new Power Pack comic book for the first time in five years.

That is all.

Apparently, my longing for childish things is a spreading infection on my mind. Johanna mentioned a series from her childhood which struck a note in my brain. I remembered a series of books I'd read as a kid. I recalled the first one involved a clock that I was pretty sure struck thirteen. I remembered Edward Gorey-like covers.

Random googling and fiddling with the google phrase finally got my memory in gear, and I found it: The House With a Clock in Its Walls, by John Bellairs. And those Gorey-esque illos I remember? Turns out that's because Gorey illustrated the series.

I remember reading three of the books, though it looks like there are a few more. I feel nostalgia crying out for me to track them down and re-read them. Then I hear The Stack of Unread Shame laughing maniacally, and I think maybe I'll curb that re-reading until I make something more dent-like in the current stack.

Still, hooray for additional memories of good reads from my youth.
