  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    Yesterday I finished a draft of a review of Elfland so hopefully that will be up in the next couple of days. After that, I only have Lady Lazarus left to review – at least until I finish reading The Broken Kingdoms (I’m about halfway through it now).

Before getting to the books, I just wanted to mention a couple of bargains I just noticed at […]
