These are some of the books we've read and loved. We thought you might love them too:
The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner's YA novel has the heart of a jewel inside the writing of a poet. Gae is one of our favourite blogger/blog-readers and we hope you support her!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran-Foer is a heartbreakingly funny story about a young boy's search for peace after his father dies in 9/11. 
The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga gives darkly comic insight into modern Indian society.
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts is a heart-stopping and inspiring epic autobiography.
Marrying George Clooney by Amy Ferris is a hysterical and brutally honest autobiography of one woman's journey through menopause. Amy is another of our favourite bloggers/blog-readers and you won't regret reading this funny, touching book.
The Outlander by Gil Adamson is a stunning read -- the author spent 10 years writing this book, not editing, but writing (PS this is not the same as the popular British series by the same name).
Burmese Lessons and The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly: two excellent books, one an autobiography and one a novel, both about the political strife of life in Burma.
