George Heller Kinda light reading don't you think? It is however what you would call the perfect beach book. I can see that the sunny climes of Arizona is a need of a little dose of historical reality.

Laura Yeah, well, I'd have maybe been more into the book if it hadn't contained the urban legend about Ring Around the Rosie in the first chapter.

Besides, what else would I read during my long days of leisure?
