The Devil You Know by Mike Carey
The Devil You Know

Felix brand of exorcism is quite entertaining and it gets him into alot of trouble. He lives with his eccentric friend, Pen, and has a ghost who hijacked a body for an informant. This book kept me entertained. Felix dry sense of humor was right up my alley. I kept picturing him as John Thaw from the Inspector Morse series.

Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow
Sharp Teeth

I was surprised at the format of the book when I first opened the cover. It is presented in a form that resembles a lengthy poem but, reads like a tale. Barlow's use of language drew me in instantly. I eased into the flow and "Sharp Teeth" took me along for one sweet ride.

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things by William McDonough and Michael Braungart
Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We are all familiar with these words but, these authors claim that a better solution can be reached by envisioning new ways of manufacturing items. This book is an enjoyable read...and since the book is waterproof, it's also Portland Fall/Winterproof.
