I have this book, but have not read it yet. It's somewhere in the immense TBR bookshelves...LOL! You'll probably read it before I do. Looking forward to reading your review!

Wow! A hardcover for $1? Great deal. There is a great used book store at my local library. I forget to use it. I'm taking my kids to the library tomorrow, I'll have to stop by and see what I can find. Wish me luck :) Congrats on your bargain.

That really is a light week for you Ryan. You probably have a large stack on your shelves to read too. Although you do read rather fast, so maybe not... I do have to say you do always find the deals.

Nice grab! That's a really underrated book - even though it had its heyday a few years ago amidst Da Vinci Code hype, it's actually a pretty solid read. Enjoy!

Enjoy it! I liked it when I read it a while back.

Ooh! Great find! It's a bit slow in parts, but I totally loved it! Enjoy!

What I remember about this story - that it was basically a love letter to Princeton, wrapped up in a mystery about a really obscure book.

I haven't read this book, but I absolutely love those library sales.

Gotta love those library sales! I never walk away empty-handed. :)

Good find! How can you resist a hardcover for $1 ... and supporting the Friends of the Library, too.

I read THE RULE OF FOUR several years ago. Intrigued by the descriptions of Princeton (and I think there were underground tunnels, or was that a Harvard-based book?

Dawn is right, this is the book with the underground tunnels. I enjoyed this book. It wasn't fantastic, but it was good.
