OUTLIERS by Malcolm Gladwell

OMG!   This was incredible.  I was captivated from the first sentence.  I listened to the CD's, which were narrated by the author.  The tone was perfect.

Rachel -- as an educator, this is great food for thought.

There is something of interest for everyone in this book.

Ford County Stories by John Grisham

This is a collection of short stories.  Great little stories with just enough plausibility to make them interesting.
The story builds, and then about the time you are wondering where it is going, it tapers off and ends.  It is almost like reading several little ideas for novels that were never developed any further.  I'm a Grisham fan for sure.  I listened in the car and found myself eagerly thinking about driving home each night so I could hear the rest of the story.
