The Unicorn Quest: Secret in the Stone, Kamilla Benko
Kids' book. Nice and light. Will definitely keep reading the next one.
Quicksilver, Neal Stephenson
Oh boy, these are getting long.
There's three books in this volume. Books one and three are dense and slow. Book two is awesome. And the thing is, the awesomeness of book two kinda rubs off on books one and three.
But this is just volume one, and I don't think I can keep slogging through.
