What I'm reading...the books I took out of the Chicago Public Library today

The Chicago Public Library is fantastic. I thought that after I started using my Kindle Fire that my library visits would slow down, but that hasn't been the case. I simply can't afford to buy every book that I want to read. I keep a constant flow of library books circulating in my apartment. These are my current selections:

Hungry Ghosts: Mao's Secret Famine, by Jasper Becker

The Lifeboat: A Novel, by Charlotte Rogan
