Thank you for finding my library interesting, Julia. I take that very personally. I see a number of my friends on your "members with" list. Check out both TadAd and kokipy for lots of good science fiction and alcottacre for a good general list. Well, kokipy's library has the most books in common with mine, so she has lots more than good scifi and Tad does too.
Ah. Looking again, I see that you are more of a mystery reader. I read fewer mysteries now, thanks to the widening influence of LT.
Happy Reading!
I found it at a discount store. For some reason, I thought it was a spin-off from The Spiderwick Chronicles but I bought it anyway because it looked neat and I've started collecting stuff on giants. Anyway -- it has a stupendous cover, a few illustrations by Wayne Anderson, and a tassel. What more could one want?
