      Yeah, when I opened the package and saw the cover I was a little confused. It just doesn’t look like the cover of a book I’d choose to read, but then I read the blurb again and decided to just ignore the cover.

    Oooh, lots of great reads! I finally treated myself to the paperback of Rules of Civility after hearing so much about it within the last year. Hoping it’s a good one! I love the premise and setting.
