This past week i finished Patrick O'Brian's The Letter of Marque. I thought it was a great installment. It wrapped up some plotlines that had been dangling for the last few books and set up several new ones. There are some great battles, particularly the cutting out of the Diane, which all raise Jack's reputation for luck to extraordinary heights. A very good volume in a fabulous series! a 7.
now, i have some graphic, disturbing images to share. at least, they are disturbing to book lovers!
B was rereading Game of Thrones. He often sits out on our porch and left the book out there by accident. here's what happens if you let a book get absolutely soaked through.
he said when he found it the book was running water like a sponge. the cover came off as it dried. This is actually a little better; when it was fully wet that curve in the spine was much worse because the book was actually fatter.
Yucky, right? We'll get another copy from McKay's.
