Y’all.  It has been absolutely FOREVER since we have done a Book Club-style beat down.  I’ve been a terrible book reader this year.  This seems to come and go in phases – either I am reading Every Book Known To Man or I am reading Absolutely Nothing At All.

Anyway, we’ll lead off with the book that kickstarted my reading books instead of magazines habit once more (translation: got me to pay off my damn library fine).  Since it has been just ages since I read some of the stuff that’s popping up here, what I will say about all of it is that this batch of books?  Were a fascinating read.
