Underground City

I picked up a copy of Alan Weisman’s The World Without Us from Indigo’s books under $10 table.  I’m not sure what a book has to do to be heaved onto the $10 table…perhaps this is where former “International Bestsellers” go to spend their twilight years…next to the the Chicken Soup for the Atheist books.  […]
