More Disney books!!

Hey guys, so I picked up two more Disney related books last week! With a generous Barnes and Noble gift card(early xmas gift!).

Disney War, James B. Stewart
This is an almost 600 page book. It seems extremely daunting at first, I wasn't even going to get it! But I thought, why the heck not, and I'm SO happy I decided to.

I'm about 100 pages in, and it's amazing. It's mostly about the rise (and fall) of the Eisner era. There's a lot of history and background, so if you don't like that kind of stuff then I wouldn't pick this baby up.

But if you're a Disney history freak like I am, it's great. All the greats are here, and the backgrounds of the popular Eisner Era films are shown. The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast, etc.

It's gonna take a bit to finish, but so far it's really great. Hopefully I'll be finished in the next few weeks and will get a full review up. :)


Mousecatraz, Wesley Jones
Funny story, I ordered this book online and I kept getting emails about how it was going to take longer than expected and they asked if I wanted to cancel the order. So I was like "whatever" and did. An hour later, I got the shipment confirmation.

Then, I found out it was delivered to my house on the 16th....3 days ago. I wrote a note and was going to stick it on my front door of my apartment building asking the person who picked it up to return it to me. Then I saw it was sitting under a pile of tile boxes used to re-do the hallway. Nice.

I haven't started this one yet, but it's rather short so I can probably finish it tomorrow if I start tonight. I've heard...mixed reviews. I'll probably have a full review of it up in the next week.

I still want to do a full review of Reality land! I have to say Mouse Tales was my favorite I've read so far, Reality Land is definitely number 2.

Read any of these? Want to? Comment with your thoughts/questions!
