A Hard Death by Jonathan Hayes

Gripping, nail-biting throughout the entire book. Highly recommend it!

American Buffalo: In search of a lost icon by Steven Rinella

American Buffalo was my first experience reading an ebook. I found both the book and the experience fascinating. As an avid outdoors enthusiast, Rinella's account of his Alaskan buffalo-hunting experience was informative and entertaining. The ebook experience less so -- the page formatting was awkward (footnotes spread over several screens) and my assumption that ebooks could be read in the dark proved incorrect.

Shanghai Girls by Lisa See

Lissa See's novels are all terrific. Aside from learning Chinese history (this time during the 20th century in Shanghai and California) I was mesmerized by the story of 2 sisters whose comfortable lives are drastically changed by circumstances beyond their control. Can't wait to read her sequel, which was just released.
