110:12 Side Jobs by Jim Butcher

A collection of short stories set in the Dresden universe, most are written in the usual style from Harry's point of view but the last one is written from Karrin's point of view after Harry's disappearance.  Several of the stories are simply reprints from previous anthologies.  Fun stories but I think my favorite was Day Off where Harry actually tries to take a day off.  Maybe it's just because it reminds me so much of my own life.

I wanted to like the last story more but I didn't feel like Karrin's voice was different enough from Harry's.  It was my biggest let-down from the whole book.  A good story but I just didn't feel the author did as good a job speaking for her.
