The View From Monday - March 14, 2016

Happy Pi Day and Happy first Monday after Daylight Savings Time starts in the majority of the United States. I'm not a fan of Daylight Savings Time. We spend more months on Daylight Savings Time than Standard Time now. Some of the reasons put forth for this are simply ridiculous and not grounded in reality. I think we should pick a time and just stick to it.  Now back to books.

Snakewood by Adrian Selby;


Dissension (An Echo Hunter 367 Novel) by Stacey Berg.
