I hesitate to even review this, because reading fan fiction about Star Wars is a line I've just never crossed, ya know? Its a whole different level of fandom. But this book was a dollar on my Nook one night and . . . and I kind of loved it. I didn't ...more

The Witch of Lime Street by David Jaher

P.G. Wodehouse
“Oh, Jeeves,' I said; 'about that check suit.'
Yes, sir?'
Is it really a frost?'
A trifle too bizarre, sir, in my opinion.'
But lots of fellows have asked me who my tailor is.'
Doubtless in order to avoid him, sir.'
He's supposed to be one of the best men in London.'

P. G. Wodehouse

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., A Man Without a Country

Rachel Carson
