Rate this book
Clear rating
So, I've been vaguely aware for a decade or so that the Earthsea books were a thing, and were considered fantasy classics, but even after finding an old copy of A Wizard of Earthsea in a thrift shop for fifty cents, it still took me about a year to a ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
A truly bizarre, yet interesting hodge-podge of traditional Zimbabwean influences and sci-fi ideas rolled up in an adventure that is really more about three children than the titular characters. Tendai, Rita, and Kuda escape their sheltered but luxur ...more

Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris
Rate this book
Clear rating

Rate this book
Clear rating
