I've not read this book. I don't think I've ever read the author's work, maybe, his name is familiar.
I can relate about the books. I've got several waiting for me to read, since the spring, and alas I"ve not gotten to them at all. I've started a few and just havent finished any. Thank heavens I own them! Some are new but most are used. I love perusing used book shops as well. Reading is my fav past time but I just havent been able to do it lately. Come to think of it I have a library book I have to check if it's late!
