The Raven Tower

Leckie, Ann
I don't know if this is gonna be a series, if so, it is the first one volume. Anyway, the narrator is a big rock, recounting the adventures of Eolo, who is aide to Lord Marat. I like it a lot, I'd read the next no problemo.

"I'll have to kill them both, then," she said, her voice slightly exasperated, as though she had just been presented with a minor, unexpected chore. -- pg. 338

Less

Greer, Andrew Sean
A guy goes on a trip around the world to avoid going to his former lover's marriage ceremony. Humorous, and I wept at the end of the book.

Quote:

"Mr. Peleu, you've packed everything; now what are we going to wear?" -- page 193.

Adventures Among Ants

Moffett, Mark
Really good non-fiction book about ants. Lots of science stuff, yet pretty readable by the average idiot, like me. Lots of interesting anecdotes, too.

American Nomads

Stowell, Emily
A novelized biography of the author's family coming to America and eventually settling in Oregon. Vanity published, I guess, the printing was poorly done in the beginning, and there are some editing problems, but after getting past the Dutch ancestors (WHY do they keep using the same names for everyone??) I became engaged with the story, and even teared up a bit at points. Still looking for that Huntington family chart, though!
