The Serpent and the Rainbow by Wade Davis. It's sort of like a real-life zombie book. And I have this strange fascination with voodoo.
Peace Kills by P.J. O'Rourke. A little funny libertarian food for thought.
Fargo Rock City by Chuck Klosterman. He's my favorite columnist (and the only reason why I still have a subscription to Spin). This guy's stuff is always a great read.
But that's not nearly enough reading material for me. If the books are interesting, I can easily burn through 4 or 5 in two weeks. Stealing an idea from Kate, I turn to you - my faithful readers - to give me suggestions for good beach reading. I usually prefer non-fiction (humor, politics, history, biographies), but am open to fiction. Keep in mind that I will be getting any suggestions from the library, so I'll need to put in a reserve request post haste in order to get them before I leave.
