The Autobiography of Red manages to be both tender and humorous, the kind of book that stays with you long after you've finished. This story of a boy with wings is filled with melodrama and romance, and is much recommended.
The next book is Bringing Down the House, the story of several MIT students who developed mathematical models to win in Vegas. Having been thrown out of a casino once for counting cards, I'm sure to enjoy the subject matter.
