I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
My sister: 'Huh, this is a Prime Add-On. I need more things to get free shipping...'
Me: 'Ooooh, I want this book!'
So she got it, I paid her for it, and all is good with the world. I'll start this once I finish Black Powder War. I'm trying to read two books at a time*, and I want to read this. It'll only take a couple hours, tops, so I can get back to Temeraire without any real delay!
*Not counting comics. Graphic novels, however, are included. When I don't have access to physical books, I'm allowing myself to indulge in e-books. And limiting myself to two books may not work for me...
