Top of the pops on the New York Times Bestseller lists are John Grisham's The Associate and Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father. Well, there are more, but these are the ones I really want to read.
Grisham treads on familiar land in his story about an idealistic law-school graduate forced to take a job at a large law firm with a brutal work schedule. Grisham dissects corporate culture in his trademark good-vs-evil-struggle style. Gotta read the book to see if he delivers.
Obama's book is one I really want to read. His story of growing up in a cultural melting pot as the son of a Kenyan father and an American mother is much spoken about. If he writes as well as he speaks, this book is one for the bookshelf.
