I read some good books in 2008, how about you? I wish I read more books this last year for pure pleasure, instead of for work. But I can still come up with a few to recommend without reservation. A number of them are laugh out loud funny. I must have needed that in 2008...
The New Kings of Non-Fiction, Ira Glass
Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America, Fizoozeh Dumas
A Spot of Bother: A Novel, Mark Haddon
What is the What, Dave Eggers
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers
Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Fight Terrorism & Build Nations...One School at a Time, Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin
Kaffir Boy, Mark Mathabane
Shantaram, Gregory David Roberts
