  1. Sounds like an interesting book. Thanks so much for spotlighting it today!

    Happy Reading!

  2. Ok - this sounds fascinating. It seems like it'll be hit or miss, though, but I'd definitely give it a try. I'm not really into stories about "the scandalous lives of teens in Manhattan," but it is sci-fi....plus, 1,000 stories?!

    Interesting choice.

    My WoW

  3. Adding this one to my TBR now!
