Books I've read in the last few weeks:
"The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" both by Khaled Hosseini-These are both excellent! I can't wait to see the movie that came out last weekend.
"Divisadero" by Michael Ondaatje (author of "The English Patient")
"Blood Done Sign My Name" by Timothy Tyson
"The Road" by Cormac McCarthy (Kind of slow and depressing, an Oprah's Book Club selection)
"Catch-22" by Joseph Heller (I've started this one three times and finally finished it!)
"The River Why" by David James Duncan
