Three that slipped in under the radar

Sometimes a book comes to you with a rave review; when it does there is some pressure to like it, and that can ruin it.  I ruined one for my friend Leanne because she had asked me to list my top five books, and the one I put in the number one spot was one she finished, barely.  I sold fireworks and she bought a bic lighter.  So I won’t oversell these three, which came to me as little nothings: one a gift, one bought at a yard sale, and a third assigned at college. In no particular order (and no these are not necessarily my top five):

Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

The All of It by Jeannette Haien
