Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Journey to Change the World... One Child at a Time by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Journey to Change the World... One Child at a Time

This book was quite entertaining and I was happy to read it. That said, doesn't anyone think it a bit odd that Greg Mortenson refused to allow military funding? He doesn't really provide convincing reasons not to do so. Also, I would've liked more information on how he determined that schools for girls were more important than schools for everyone.

Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin

Definitely worth reading; even though I followed this campaign closely, the authors still found nuggets of information that were new. My one objection was that it was not as well written as I would've expected -- the authors used a lot of ghetto slang, Yiddish expressions, Italian words, as if they felt the need to pander to certain groups they expected to be reading this.

Overall, though, I enjoyed it.
