    uality Snacks ePUB ↠ Paperback uality kindle, snacks download, uality Snacks KindleA random unrelated collection of mostly uirky short stories For me they were a little uneven some humorous and fun and a few that I just didn't get I thought “Self Reliance” was hysterical although some might be put off by the subject matter I prefer connected short stories so I am probably not the target market here but an interesting collection none the less This was a bookclub pick with a visit from the author He was a delightful speaker and an interesting guy I appreciated the stories much after he explained the inspiration behind a few of them
