Got this off the shelves at work when we were clearing room for award series manuscripts.

This was in one of the two boxes of books KateKintail so generously gave me. I look forward to continuing its journey.

Edit 1 April 2012: I picked up another copy of this book recently and read it.

The 15th century is drawing to a close, and Luciano finds his life as a thief on the streets of Venice abruptly ended by the chef to the Doge, who takes him in as his apprentice. Meantime, the city is all astir about a mysterious book, said to contain untold secrets, spells, and other dangerous information. As he struggles to determine just how much his master knows about this book, Luciano sneaks food to his streetrat friends, witnesses the political machinations of assorted factions, and attempts to court a nun. It's actually a fairly decent piece of historical fiction, but I have a soft spot for both Venice and that particular time period, so I may be biased.

Left in a tree near the library. While walking up to the library to return a book, a woman asked me what the deal was with the book in the tree. I explained it to her, but I got the impression she was humoring me rather than believing me. :)

I found this book yesterday on a table in the Centreville Regional Library. I think the idea of a traveling book is awesome. I can't wait to read it!
