More books to read

Here is what the New York Times book review had for the fiction portion of the "10 best books of 2006".
  • Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart
  • The Collected Stories of Amy Hempel
  • The Emperor's Chidlredn by Claire Messud
  • The Lay o the Land by Richard Ford
  • Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl
And the non-fiction:
  • Falling through the earth, a memoir. By Danielle Trussoni
  • The Looming Tower, Al-Quada and the Road to 9/11. By Lawrence Wright.
  • Mayflower, A Story of Courage, Community, and War. By Nathaniel Philbrick.
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma, A Natural History of Four Meals. By Michael Pollan.
  • The Place in Between. By Rory Stewart.
This way at least I can throw out that page that I have saved for the last eight months :). I did try to find the Calamity Physics at our library, but at that time it must have been checked out.
