Amazon appears to only have it in hardback. Barnes & Noble has both paperback and hardback. our local large bookstore can order the hardback. I may just order it online at Barnes.
Just give the world Love.

Currently reading Better by Atul Gawande, picked up his first book called complications on a whim at Borders one day and was suprisingly sucked into it, he has a very straightforward manner of story telling, which compliments the really "who knew" topics and storys he chooses...Its just an approachable look at medical ethics...I never thought I'd be so riveted reading about the polio vaccine, both books are highly recommend.
So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life.~Office Space

The Red Prince: The Secret Lives of a Hapsburg Archduke, by Timothy Snyder.......fascinating!

The story of Wilhelm von Habsburg (1895-1949)

Spidy, the Historian is great, read it when it first came out and loved it.

Just started (on page 40) of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It is hilarious! It is killing me that I haven't had more time to read these past few days.

~~Really, Clever? Wally Lamb is usually so good.~~


I know, Sockard! I was hoping it would be as good as his other two, but it was long and boring. And I hated the ending. I actually skipped pages at certain points..and I wasn't lost in any way. That's not good.

Has anyone read The Tracy Fragments?

My Evidence casebook. Good times.

The next Dresden Files book is coming out Tuesday, though, so hopefully I'll have a day to spare to read it in all its floofy glory. I miss reading fiction.

basically. I'm only half way through because I have less than zero time to read it, and I'm in the middle of Gadsby for english. But I love Leisle and Rudy. They are so funny together.

It's funny because my mom brought it to the beach last year, and I didn't think I was going to like it at first. Ended up in love with it!

It was weird reading at first. The style is so different than what I'm used to.

I'm reading The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog. It's a book by a child psychiatrist who talks about all of these interesting cases that he's had. For me, the scariest was the Branch Davidian kids.
