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.

The Janissary Tree - Jason Goodwin A pretty good mystery with a unique setting (~1830 Istanbul) and a likeable and interesting protagonist. I liked how the book was organized in very short chapters and switched perspective often. I wavered about whether to give it 4 stars but while it was an enjoyable read it didn't draw me in or stay with me.
