    ...its not just a book, its an Annual - a periodical Annual. A "book" is "a written or printed work consisting of pages glued or sewn together along one side and bound in covers."

    1/25 A Horse Walks Into A Bar by David Grossman

    A read from my book club. A disappointment. I wanted to like it, warmed to the themes, yet the central emotional revelation makes absolutely no sense to me.
