Booksie's Shelves, August 5, 2014

Recently, I've been snowbound in the mountains at a prince's party to pick a bride, growing up in a planned neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, in Aberdeen, Scotland fighting crime and visiting the art world as an artist who can't get respect.  Currently, I'm reading about the cultural, economic and social aspects of France, in the midst of a literary scandal when a great author is accused of murdering his underage lover, in the forests of a Japanese prison camp in World War II and back in Aberdeen as I continue to devour anything Stuart MacBride has written.
