The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Planet Of Adventure

Jack Vance

One of the best Sci-Fi adventure books you will ever read. Thoroughly immersive and enjoyable. Why isn't this book a movie yet?
