I posted this in another thread, but The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is worth reading - a tad predictable in parts, but very moving.  It's a story about Afghanistan and Afghani immigrants to America.
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

Currently reading Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72.

Really hard to put down so far, he was amazing at storytelling.
