Brandon's Nominations round2

1. The Ministry of Fear - Graham Greene I haven't read this, but Graham Greene is one of the best writers of last century, and this is supposed to be a really great spy-conspiracy-thriller kind of thing set in post-war england.
2. Tortilla Flat - John Steinbeck Always eager to try out some Steinbeck that I haven't read yet.
3. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke One of my favorite books from the last few years. This is kind of if Jane Austen had written a fantasy book.
4. Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoevsky What can I say, I'm hooked on this guy. Plus, it'll be summer by the time we read any of these, right?
5. Lake Wobegon Days - Garrison Keillor Keillor's history of the town of Lake Wobegon. MN. Really funny stuff.
