  3. Thanks for the review on Mr. Penumbra's Bookstore. I was hoping for one. It has now been added to my wishlist.

    I'm looking forward to a review on Scent of Darkness. The cover is intriguing.

  4. I've heard good things about Quiet. Think I'll request it from the library.

  5. It was nice to read about the positive features of introversion for a change. Quiet was a good read.

  6. Antifragile is one of those books that is full of wonderful complex paradoxical ideas, so it is going quite slowly. And I'm glad because it's so intriguing.

  7. I'm curious about The Myths of Happiness...enjoy your week!


  8. What a great list of books! I want to check out your review on The Myths of Happiness and I am very intrigued about Quiet. Have a great week!
    Happy Reading,
