Grass for His Pillow by Lian Hearn
This is Tales of the Otori: Book Two. I'm still enjoying the story and the characters in this alternate Japanese history.

Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith
The second book about Mma Romotswe. She is still clever and pleasant to read about.

Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich
An in-between Stephanie Plum book. It's not one in the regular series. It's an extra book for St. Patrick's Day. It's funny how for the in-between books, she doesn't want to mess up the storyline of the regular series, so Joe and Ranger are both conveniently really busy with other things, and don't enter into the story much.

The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs
BOOK OF THE MONTH
From the author of The Know-It-All, also a wonderful book, comes this book about his quest to follow the Bible literally for a year. He tries to follow even the most obscure rules found in the Bible, like not wearing garments of mixed fibers and not boiling a goat in its mother's milk. He researched different religious groups that took certain rules to the extreme, like the snake-handlers. He visited different people and places, like the Amish and Jerusalem. I found this book fascinating. There were some rules that he came up with modern equivalents for, and I liked reading about those. He's a really funny guy, and now he's my Facebook friend.
