Meine Frau read the David Mitchell's in order, and she was not taken with either, especially Slade House. I keep waiting for him to do something as good as Cloud Atlas again.


Couldn't agree more with the Jack the Ripper fatigue (not that I was ever particularly intrigued by him I'm the first place). I simply don't understand the Ripper's grip on cultural imagination for the past century.

Always pack an extra bag to avoid buying yet another one for bringing back extras! Took me years to learn to do this. "This time" will not be different, will never be different. There will always be more stuff to buy.

I can't really comment on how Ohio State handles current titles, but one thing I like about them is that they make lots of their backlist titles free to read on the Web about five years after publication. You can find over 400 free titles from as recent as 2009 in this repository:

The 2010 titles in this collection should be opening up soon as well.
