1) Dear American Airlines by Jonathan Miles - I wasn't completely sure what I was getting into when I picked this up, but the story captivated me and I couldn't stop reading. Narrator Bennie is stuck in O'Hare airport, on the way to the wedding of his estranged daughter - the entire airport has shut down, no planes in or out, and Bennie is left writing a refund request letter to American Airlines. This epic 180-page letter, though, is more about his life than why he needs his $300+ back. The letter quickly becomes autobiographical, jumping from point to point within his lifetime. This is a poignant and quirky look at a down-and-out life. The only part I wasn't thrilled with were the sections where Bennie transcribed portions of a novel that he is translating from Polish to English - maybe that part just went over my head, but I wasn't seeing it tying in so well with the rest of the story.
And I started reading The Hunger Games this morning - good thing it's going to be a snowy day here in Boston, because now all I want to do is curl up and read!
