    Maus I: a survivor's tale: my father bleeds history by Art Spiegelman and Run, Boy, Run by Uri Orlev.

    Two fantastic books about the Holocaust that I re-read for a recent book club meeting. When I read Run, Boy, Run I decided it was one of the best books I ever read.

    I've read at least 6 books since my last post on this thread. Sadly I've known adults that haven't read a single book since they left high school.

    I'm a big Ellroy fan. I have really enjoyed his books since I started reading them about 10 years ago.

    I've only read one McCarthy, No Country for Old Men.
