I Know I Shouldn't. . .

. . . but Mo from Unmainstream Mom Reads is having yet another book giveaway courtesy of Hachette Book Group. I've already won a copy of Dan Simmons's The Terror but Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler's The Crimes of Paris is all about my favorite time period: the turn of the twentieth century. O the art! the rapid social change! the intellectual thought!
Bertillon and his associates would pursue clues leading them into the world of avante-garde artists; to the cheap apartments of Montmartre and Montparnasse; into the cabarets in which Parisians drank and danced without inhibitions. Their suspects would be everyone from the poet Guillaume Apollinaire to J. P. Morgan to Pablo Picasso.

Update 3/26:
Mo is also giving away Is It Just Me or Is Everything Shit?. Yes, yes, I too am annoyed by modern pop culture.
