Book Buzz

  • The cover of Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn has finally been revealed. Phew. I’m just thanking my lucky stars the book comes out before I move to Turkey.
  • Speaking of fantasy, check out Booklist’s “Top 10 SF/Fantasy for Youth: 2008.” I’ve only read one book, but I’ve thought about reading two others (that counts, right?). If reading is too difficult, Booklist also features the “Top 10 SF/Fantasy Audiobooks: 2008.”
  • I browsed the book section at Costco yesterday. It was like entering a reader’s crack den. I wanted to buy every book—and at such reasonable prices. I was particularly interested in Douglas Preston’s The Monster of Florence about an Italian serial killer. My instincts must be good because Amazon has the book listed as one of this month’s best. Actually, my instincts are terrible. I instead bought Confessions of a Jane Austin Addict. Fifty pages in, I already know I made the wrong decision.

I read a review about the Italian serial killer book. I'm intrigued. Will you read it and tell me if you recommend it?

Why don't you read it and tell me if it is worthwhile. Merci.
