Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I will be completely honest and say that I’ve walked by a GIANT stack of this book at a bargain store for $2 a bazillion times, picked it up, and put it back down because of that cover. But you are so dang convincing in this blog post that I’m probably going to go out of my way in a little bit to grab it if they still have a copy. I’m totally intrigued now!
