Reading List: North of Here

Northwest Pearls: Reading List I just finished North of Here by Laurel Saville.

I loved it. I really couldn't put it down. There was one point where I was so frustrated with one of the characters that I put it down to go do something else; I promptly picked it right back up because I needed to know what was going to happen.

The story is very real. There's not much romanticizing of the characters or their traits. I don't want to spoil the book for you by giving too much away though!

Have you read it? What did you think?

Reading List: What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions

Yesterday I got What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe. I started reading it today on the bus and let me say, it's a gem. I've been looking at his website, http://xkcd.com/ for a while now, and I love it. Some of his comics go over my head, I don't always understand the math, the science, or the computer jokes he makes, but I still love it.

He's even got a what if? website where he posts some of these. I highly recommend that you check out one or all of these. They're pretty funny. His book is available at Amazon, as well as a few other places. I even saw it at a local bookstore last week!
