April's Reads

I’ve been devouring biographies for the past two months. While I’m still enjoying biographies of the non-auto variety, I’m pretty much burned out on memoirs, though I still have a couple out from the library. We’ll see if I get around to them. But here’s what I read in April. If you want live updates, friend me on Shelfari.

Here are the books I read in April, listed from the first of the month to the end:
2. Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
3. Tricky Business by Dave Barry
4. The Mistress's Daughter by A. M. Homes
6. The Rare Coin Score by Richard Stark
7. Lit by Mary Karr
8. Carly's Voice by Arthur Fleischmann
9. A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
10. Tattoos on the Heart by Gregory Boyle
11. Sour Lemon Score by Richard Stark
12. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
13. The Pursuit of Happyness by Chris Gardner

Freedom and Tattoos on the Heart were probably the best of the lot.

If you want the musical equivalent of a James Ellroy novel from the perspective of a gun moll, check out “Off to the Races” by Lana Del Ray:
