I have about a dozen books with bookmarks in them at any given time. Fiction, nonfiction, old, new. I can't read any one book all the way through without a diversion.

Warriors Don't Cry - a memoir written by one of the nine black students who integrated Central High School in Little Rock during the '50s.

I took a break from reading Look Me In The Eye to read that aforementioned book.

I am reading the Girl with a Dragon Tattoo series by Larsson. I like them.
I am also reading Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond which is somewhat interesting.
And then I am reading a bunch of work and special interest topics to try to keep myself
informed.

The Omnivore's Dilemma

http://michaelpollan.com/books/the-omnivores-dilemma/

It's a pretty good read. It details our food, how we get it, and its implications in every respect.
