Some more books that failed to make the cut.
No Place Like Home, by Fern Michaels. This is one of Jane's romance novels; she decided she didn't want it. I don't ask questions.
Enemy Glory, by Karen Michalson. Bad fantasy. I panned this some months ago.
Legs Benedict, by Mary Daheim. Failed humorous mystery. At least, it didn't tickle my funny bone.
The Big Nap, by Ayelet Waldman. Yet another meant-to-be-funny stumble-around-'til-you-solve-it mystery. It was OK, but I won't miss it.
The Bad Beginning, by Lemony Snicket. Duplicate copy.
How to Live with a Neurotic Dog, by Stephen Baker. No, this isn't a repeat; I found another copy. Why we had two copies, I dunno. We used to have two dogs, but that seems like an insufficient excuse.
Pooh and the Millenium, by John Tyerman Williams. Subtitled, "In which the Bear of Very-Little Brain explores the Ancient Mysteries at the Turn of the Century." It was funny, I guess...but it's so 20th Century.
China Mountain Zhang, by Maureen F. McHugh. Lots of people really like this book; sadly, I'm not one of them.
E=mc2, by David Bodanis. A book about Einstein and his equation. This is a duplicate copy; again, I dunno how we ended up with two of them. I'd be for getting rid of both, as I don't expect to read it again, but Jane thinks she'd like to read it.
L is for Lawless and M is for Malice, by Sue Grafton. I've gone off Kinsey Millhone a bit, and while I don't intend to get rid of all of Grafton's novels, these two hardcovers simply take up too much room.
The Dolphins of Pern, by Anne McCaffery. Sigh. I remember when a new Pern novel was an event. This one, however, was not.
A New Song, by Jan Karon. Duplicate copy. Plus, it's a hardcover, and I have all of the rest in matching paperbacks.Posted by Will Duquette at January 1, 2003 04:04 PM
