Don't Be Afraid of the Dork

Covered in dog hair, Obsessed with books, Wondering what it's all about. I suspect the answer is ice cream and the ocean.

Captain Alatriste - Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Margaret Sayers Peden This is a pretty short book but my main impression is that it could have been even shorter. It was an interesting look at life in 17th century height-of-its-power Spain but that seemed to be main point of the book. The, while very engaging seemed incidental and only took up a small portion of the book. While I found all the historical detail interesting I was a little disappointing the plot wasn't more substantial.
