The Cat's Pajamas

By Ray Bradbury

This is a collection of stories, so my feelings are mixed. Some of the stories were interesting, others weren't so much. Some were really scary (in a thriller kind of way), while others were funny and amusing. Some of the stories I regret to say I couldn't really understand. Cool cover image by Bradbury. [234 pp. + introduction]

An Available Man

By Hilma Wolitzer

Quite an engaging story of the first couple of years of a man as a widower, and his relationships with his family and the women he meets along the way. I know this description doesn't make it sound too engaging, but it was. Funny at times, outraging at others. It was pretty good. [304 pp.]
