My book club’s latest choice is A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers, which I’ve just begun reading. I’ve long wanted to read his What Is the What but have yet to do so.

Another author I’ve recently come to like is Gillian Flynn, and I was listening to Dark Places until it came due at the library. I like dark, and it delivers, so I’ll definitely renew it when my reservation comes back around!

I just finished The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula le Guin from 1971. It could be claimed as one of the original ideas as far as post-apocalyptic fiction is concerned, and perhaps ground-breaking, but there are so many others I’ve enjoyed much more.

It’s only just been released, but I’ve been excited about Khaled Hosseini’s new book And the Mountains Echoed for quite a while now. His other two titles, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, set a high bar for him to meet. I love that those books possibly introduced foreign worlds to some otherwise sheltered American readers who could then see the characters as real people instead of simply as exotic objects.
