Crack'd Pot Trail (The Tales of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach #4)
I did NOT finish reading this book. The long winded speaches and lack of a decent storyline got me in the end. I always finish books. Always. But I ju ...more

Under Heaven
Beautiful. I never say that about a book, but the prose in this novel was simply beautiful.

An Arsonist's Guide To Writers' Homes In New England
