Books are cheaper than heroin, but they DO add up....

Amy, Carrie, Chanin and Sarah buy (and read and review) their own stuff. They've been known to shop around from dealer to dealer looking for the best price. If you're interested in slipping them something to try out, just contact us.

Short. Funny. Done.

I don't know about you, but short,  funny, and done is how I like my summer reading.  I save the long, drama-filled plot twists and turns for the school year.  Summer, in my view, should be filled with quick little funny stories that I can pick up at the pool and put down once a friend plops down next to me and my Build-a-Bear towel. 

Portuguese Irregular Verbs by Alexander McCall Smith (of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency fame) is just that.  It follows Professor Dr. von Igelfeld and his haphazard band of academic acquaintances all over Europe.   Very proud of his title and of his published novel about verbs, Dr. Von Igelfeld takes himself way too seriously. And it's funny. 

There are two more in this series and I plan to finish them this summer.  Where, you ask? At the pool, of course!

Happy reading!
