Who is Conrad Hirst - Kevin Wignall
A Christmas Cash purchase. THD admits to picking this book up for its intriguing cover art. Reviews for this book have been quite good, but let me again admit I have not read any of them. Perhaps a 2008 resolution should be to cultivate a small cadre of reviews and reviewers to make informed buying decisions.
Slay Ride/Hell for the Holidays - Chris Grabenstien
THD is a confessed dork for Grabenstein's John Ceepak series, but as stated here before I have treated his holiday themed series cautiously for unknown reasons. THD could argue fiscal considerations, but I think we all know that would be a heaping helping of bull. In any case, THD is pleased to have both these books. I am sure it will tide THD over until Ceepak #4, Hell Hole, appears at local book retailers.
Blonde Faith - Walter Mosley
It is with a touch of sadness that THD purchased the tenth, and last, Easy Rawlins novel with Christmas Cash yesterday. Mosley has gone on record saying his most famous creation is retired. I will bid him farewell.... you should do the same.
I have further complicated matters by picking up four books from the library. Prognosis for reading any of those 0.0%. Oh dear.....

Your Score: Schroeder
Wishy-Washy: 71%, Mental: 50%, Physical: 50%
A prodigy from his very first appearance, Schroeder idolizes Beethoven and spends most of his free time at the keyboard of his piano. He plays backstop for Charlie Brown's baseball team, but his heart belongs to classical music. The best way to get rid of annoying distractions is to yank the piano out from under them.
