reviewed: 360º New York
This book stays on our coffee table. It's weird--you want to wrap all the pages around into circles. Pretty cool.
360º New York - Nick Wood
reviewed: A Girl of the Limberlost
I found this book surprisingly good--in an Anne of Green Gables kind of way.
A Girl of the Limberlost - Gene Stratton-Porter
reviewed: The Power of One: A Novel
This is in my top ten books of all time. READ IT!!!
The Power of One - Bryce Courtenay
reviewed: Angela's Ashes: A Memoir
Horrifying poverty and hilarious narrative. You just can't beat that.
