A Crown of Swords (Wheel of Time, #7)
Again, not much happened until the very end of the book. Even the things that did happen were begun or planned in the previous book. At least it was a ...more

Lord of Chaos (Wheel of Time, #6)

The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1)

SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes And Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance
Good, but not quite as good as the first in my opinion. Felt like Levitt and Dubner were trying a little too hard this time.
