Death in the Afternoon
by Ernest Hemingway

Started: February 22, 2011
Finished: February 28, 2011

Bullfighting is a subject I could care less about, but that's the beauty of Hemingway in this book. He writes with such love and understanding of the subject that I now want to go see a real bullfight in Spain. 487 pages. Grade: A-

The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth
by William Shakespeare

Started: February 5, 2011
Finished: February 28, 2011

This is the first Shakespeare play in a while that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Intriguing plot, interesting characters, some great lines. Maybe it just took me till this third play to really get into these characters and story. 29 pages. Grade: A-

The Bookman's Wake
by John Dunning

Started: February 22, 2011
Finished: February 28, 2011

I think I enjoyed this just as much as the first Cliff Janeway mystery. It was a good story. I like how Dunning does such a good job of showing what goes into making a truly great book. 351 pages. Grade: A
