Hey, I haven't posted about books in awhile, you go!

Since the end of June, I have read:

27. Sara Douglass – The Wayfarer Redemption
28. Stephen King – The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah
29. Francine Prose – Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People who love books and for those who want to write them (uncorrected proof)
30. John Wood – Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur’s Odyssey to Educate the World’s Children (advanced reading copy)
31. Sebastian Junger – The Perfect Storm
32. Sara Douglass – Enchanter
33. Anderson Cooper – Dispatches from the Edge: A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival
34. Margaret Atwood – The Robber Bride
35. Margaret Shepherd – The Art of Civilized Conversation
36. Elizabeth Haydon – Prophecy
37. Stephen King – The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower

Yes, I'm finished with the Dark Tower books.

Of this list, I'd recommend the Anderson Cooper book. Am I biased because I heard him at the ALA conference? No...maybe. It was a good, short memoir. John Wood's Leaving Microsoft book was another good one, and another person I got to see at ALA. It's even autographed to me! As for fiction... read the Dark Tower books if you're up for it. I loved the setting and characters more than I liked the story.
