On this lovely day, I should like to share three reviews with you dear readers. As usual I got the ARC’s from http://www.netgalley.com; it’s a good place for amateur reviewers to get books early, but you don’t get to keep them; they expire 55 days after being downloaded, and sometimes I have to download them again. 719 more words
