- Candy Freak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America, by Steve Almond (Read this book; it rules.)

- The Secret History, by Donna Tartt
- The Librarian, by Larry Beinhart
- Hemingway, the Paris Years, by Michael Reynolds (I'm slowly making my way through Reynolds' five-book bio of Hemingway.)
- I'm Not the New Me, by Wendy McClure
