"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."
--Author Christopher Benson

Great books and great reviews! I WISH I could be as productive as some of my fellow book bloggers! Alas, I cannot be, but that is OK, I guess! THanks for visiting my blog. I'll be back to give you my impression of "Revenge Served Cold"
