The Help by Kathryn Stockett
13 1/2 by Nevada Barr
Something in French (my French is limited)
Slim pickings - the non-literature-minded masses were either attached to cellphone/iPod or, like my benchmate, arguing over the merits of receiving jail-time or probation when assaulting the mother of one's child (aka "bitch-slappin' ma baby-momma"). True story.
And what was I reading? A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book (only 175 pages to go). Lovely.
