Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    Only stumbled across on New Release this week that caught my eye, should be a good one though,.
  • The Relic Master by Christopher Buckley -- One of the best satiric novelists around (maybe the best) brings a tale about a 16th century attempt to fake the Shroud of Turin. A slight departure from the rest of his work (which is primarily set in or around Washington, D. C.)

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Hooked on Books for following the blog this week. Thanks to Casey Owen for the comment and email -- really appreciate it.
