AWP & Mission Creek Book Haul

We spent the last two weeks consumed by the twin spring tornadoes that are AWP and Mission Creek. It was fun. It was exhausting. And the following books helped us attain new heights in our stack of books to read. While we can't vouch for all of them cause we haven't read them yet, we did find them enticing enough to pay green money for them.
