SO EXCITING. I just got my shipping information from DHL... I doubt they have ever delivered from from Bhiwandi India to Timberlake North Carolina before, eh? And here they come: 33 POUNDS of Amar Chitra Katha comic books, the "ultimate" collection (325 comic books, so it works out to about a dollar a piece). And, yes, it's still 70% off for anyone like me who is crazy enough to embark on this wild reading project: http://www.amarchitrakatha.com/us/amar-chitra-katha-complete-collection-315-10 ... and here is the BEST NEWS OF ALL: thanks to in the OU Libraries, there is going to be a set available on reserve in the Library for my students. How cool is that, eh??? I'll write up Reading Guides for the relevant comic books, just like I'm doing for the public domain books that will be the UnTextbook, but this reading option will also be available for any students who can go to the Library. The students are going to have such great reading options to choose from! :-)

- Amar Chitra Katha?? In America? And sold by an American...?
God! I thought your superheroes were batman and superman!! Your heroes were gadget-laden with missiles and grenades.
But our superheroes had only wit and intellect to conquer tough situations. Your superheroes used force to carry out their writ. But our superheroes used tact and diplomacy to rule.
Oh! By the way, I have all these Comic books, and also all comics of Tinkle.
Wait.. what do you mean by "anyone who's crazy enough to embark on this wild reading?" This is not "wild" reading .Apr 11, 2015
- Ha ha, well, it is sold by India... the package is coming from Mumbia. I bought it from the ACK site. And it is wild in the sense of crazy: I don't have time for this really. But then, I don't have time for anything... and in a world where everything is on borrowed time, I would much rather reach ACK than other things! :-)Apr 11, 2015
