Aunt Dimity's Death (An Aunt Dimity Mystery, #1)
3.94
it was amazing
There are few books that are so sweet, so perfect, so interminably beautiful. A blast into the past of the 1940s, though set in the 90s. Reminiscent o ...more

The Jewels of Bangkok

Someday, Less Than Three will get a real editor. That day, we will all rejoice. Until then, a grammatical error a page is all we can expect.

Mrs. Dalloway is immensely dense, the kind of book where the author didn't waste a single word or sentence. You have to admire the kind of mind that c ...more
