I don't have room in my current library for more books, but I liked Unwind so much that it's on my wish list for when I do. Moreover, I have been recommending it to all my reader friends--and now am recommending it to you. Unwind is a fabulous read! http://allisonsbookbag.wordpress.com/2011/03/20... more
