CNN Travel did a story on the country’s best bookstores. I’ve only been to one. The Strand in NYC is one of my favorites and every time we are in the city I make sure to carve out a few hours to lose myself in the store. It’s worth a look if you are in New York.
Check out their other favorites.

“Brad” was released from prison on a technicality and wasted no time in planning revenge against those who wronged him. His first step was finding a woman with a car to warm his bed. Enter Jamie, who had just found out her boyfriend was married, and you have a scary combination of recklessness and danger. They begin their trek from Florida to Ohio to find his ex-wife and his son.
The book had potential, but never really pulled me in. There was only one sympathetic character of the bunch. And I kept waiting for something to happen, but had to wait until the last part of the book.
A good reader can make a good book better or a bad one worse. The reader used different voices for the many characters, but a few of the characters sounded so silly. So, I’ll allow for the possibility that it may have been better if I’d read it, but I still wouldn’t recommend this book.
