*The Interpreter of Maladies - by Jhumpa Lahiri


*The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid - by Bill Bryson

I do not think this post was boring at all! I love books and especially love getting recommendations from my friends. I just purchased The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao from Amazon and I'm just waiting to get it. I might post my list of books read this year too. Good idea!

My Matt got me a kindle from Amazon for Christmas, so I have a preview of the book you commented about on my blog... may grab a few chapters of some of these and see if I'd like to buy them too!

I didn't think this was boring either! Great idea! There are tons of book blogs, too, but one that I follow regularly and you may enjoy is 5 Minutes for Books! Hope your Christmas was good.
