I picked up Memoirs of a Geisha at the airport and it's pretty good.

I know it isn't on your list... but I hear "Life of Pi" is really, really good. I've yet to read it, but it's quickly reaching the top of my pile.



Possession isn't bad. I had to study it in OAC and so I'm a little bit bitter... I think I'd like the book had it not been shoved down my throat the manner in which it was. It's also got some pretty long, drawn out-ish sections that are difficult to get through. It's not Pride and Predjudice tedious, but it's difficult. I'd still recommend reading Possession before Harry Potter, though. Not a HP fan.

I say read Harry Potter, and then Possession. (I'm going to reread it on break!)

Unless you're in the mood for some look-at-me-I-teach-English writing right now, then read Possession. I skipped chunks of that book (the poetry and literary criticism got old) but it's a good one.

I would say Lucky Man

Enjoyable book and he's very honest about himself and how he is dealing w/ Parkinson's

None of those - read Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.
