This Week (plus one day) In Books, July 22 – 29

It’s hard to believe, but TWIB has been in business for a year already, so this is the final edition.  If you really want to know what happened in Carp 500 history after this week, just look back at last year’s posts.  This was quite a good week for TWIB to finish up on, too.  The problem is, […]
