I've just finished Emma Donoghue's Room (interesting). I will be starting Alan Bennett's Uncommon Reader.

I just finished A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny for the murder mystery category.  It was OK, but nothing special.  I do not feel inclined to read any others in the series.

Don't Mean Nothing by Susan Kramer O'Neil.  I am reading it for the challenge because it is short stories that make up one story.  Got me on the first page.

Watergate: A novel by Thomas Mallon

A great book  but you need to know the characters and history.
