I'm off to church in a few, and then work, so the numbers are in a bit early today:
7. Tears in the Darkness, Michael Norman and Elizabeth M. Norman
The book is about the Bataan Death March in WW2, and specifically the experience of Ben Steele, a young cowboy, and it has a lot of his sketches. I worked with his nephew back in California and when the book was published, I got it from my friend (also named Ben Steele), signed by his uncle. It's not a fun, pleasant read, but much of history is like that.
23. Eragon, Christopher Paolini
I really love fantasy and this book, the first written by Paolini, is very good. It's the first of a series, and while I enjoyed the entire series, this is my favorite. It's the story of a boy and his dragon, and the author was only 15 years old when he started writing it.
As a side note, the random number generator apparently had a theme today - Montana. Ben Steele and Christopher Paolini are both from beautiful Montana, the Treasure State, Big Sky Country.
