bookshelves: didn-t-finish

From last week's N.Y. Times Book Review, which featured this book on its cover:

"The subtitle of “Cold” suggests a march into the well-scoured terrain of polar exploration. Despair and blackening digits. Man’s best friend for dinner again. But that’s not where we’re going. Bill Streever does include a few tales from the era, but he has high standards. Losing a frostbitten limb won’t earn you a place in this book. You must be found dead with a spoon lashed to the stump. The adventures here take place in colder and stranger lands than the Arctic."

Say no more. I'm in.
