The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. New York Times best seller. This book masterfully combines the true stories of a serial killer and the 1893 Chicago World's Fair (so many "firsts" and connections to later acheivements of well know men). All spoken words are verified from written sources, but it reads like a fast-paced novel. Larson paints an incredible picture of the time period.
i reallllllllllllllllllly need to change what's above our couch (and i really want a new couch). all the prints are very colorful and girly and i want to switch it out with something andy could maybe appreciate. :) i love the idea of a shelf behind the couch... and the huge mirror is kinda cool too.
