Murder by Death
That's dedication! :)
I was initially a little confused and then figured you'd just goofed. And I've made it to chapter 12!
Murder by Death
Don't ask me what was going on in my head when I made the discussion posts, but I just noticed I entirely flubbed the discussion thread names. I have now fixed it so that 'f...

Gulp by Mary Roach
Although not quite entirely devoid of interesting content, it was pretty close. Instead of fact-based discussion about our digestive system with some humour sprinkled along th...
DNF @ 34%. I looked at my current reads this morning and just cannot bear the thought of spending more time on a book I evidently don't enjoy when there are so many awesome ...
