Smugglers Weekly Stash

Yo ho ho and a bottle o’…

As our weekend comes to a close, we have once again used the magic Sorting Hat to select the winners of our Lisa Shearin Giveaway! *drumroll please*


Please drop either us (thebooksmugglers AT hotmail DOT com) or Lisa (lisa AT lisashearin DOT com) an email to give us your snail mail addresses, and your goodies will be along as soon as possible! Congratulations! Once more, we’d like to thank Lisa Shearin for the interview, and for the giveaway.

Upcoming News:

Tomorrow, The Book Smugglers and Katie from Ramblings on Romance will have our first ever Official Powerpuff Triple Review, of Shiloh Walker’s Through the Veil. We’ll post our joint review here, and Katie will post hers over at Ramblings on Romance, so be sure to stop by and check it out.

On Wednesday, Kate from What Kate’s Reading will be joining us here at The Book Smugglers for her Dare review! We had Dared Kate to try her hand at a graphic novel, and gave her The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes to read and review. Will she love it or loathe it? Check back on Wednesday to see…


This Friday, July 18, The Dark Knight FINALLY arrives in theaters! In honor of the release, we will be having our very own BATMAN LONG WEEKEND, where we’ll try our best to give the Caped Crusader some of the limelight he deserves.

On Thursday, Thea will review ‘the Alpha’–Frank Miller’s Batman Year One, and give a brief recap of Batman Returns. Then, we’ll do a joint review of Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke…with a slight twist. We’ll be using the voices of the Joker and Batman to write our review.

On Friday, Thea will review The Dark Knight (since the lucky, lucky girl will be seeing it early on Thursday. In IMAX.)!

Saturday, we’ll discuss Arkham Asylum, and a joint review of ‘the Omega’–Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. We’ll close the weekend out on Sunday with a poll for The Best of Batman…and get ready for all the madness to start back up again with The X-Files!

It’s a busy week, and we hope you enjoy!

    How dare you see Dark Knight before me! I am so jealous.
    Am I a sick person to have a crush on The Joker?

    Tracy, yup a Batman long weekend is underway! 🙂 I’ve been having a blast reading through old and new Batman faves in preparation.

    Katie–MUWAHAHAHAHA! Yes, yes I have early tickets and I will gloat! :p I have my joker tee ready to go, I know I’ll be in line FOREVER but I can’t wait. My bf and I are leaving work super early to make sure we get good seats :p

    Pidute 🙂 Congrats! I’m sure you’ll find a willing body to go see Batman with you! If not, you can always do the solo movie thing (I love going to movies alone! So…peaceful. Easy to find a seat too)
