If time and money were infinite, this is what we would buy and read.
This week it’s something new, something I missed last week, and something free.
Full Dark, No Stars
Let us take moment to appreciate the incredible balls it takes to put the words “no stars” in the title of your book.

If a tribute to table tennis with a pun-based title and a contribution from Nick Hornby is pong, then I don’t want to be right.
This story of a remorseless teen’s bloody, revenge-fuelled rampage through a housing project is available as a free audiobook from iTunes–just search for “Young Junius” or “Seth Harwood”–and my natural inclination towards sarcasm is completely disarmed by free shit.
Well-played Harwood, you magnificent bastard.
