The Orchard Keeper - Cormac McCarthy

Blood Meridian - Cormac McCarthy
Highschool of the Dead vol. 3.

My favorite author is Cormac McCarthy, so I figured I should start grabbing up his books. I already owned Blood Meridian, but I loaned it to my mother and she got water on it so I got a new copy and gave that one to her.
