1. American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang: Am still not quite sure what to take away from the book - interesting and entertaining nevertheless.
2. Richistan by Robert Frank: The first chapter on certified household managers was certainly the most eye-opening and enjoyable. The book was an easy and entertaining read.
3. Chess Machine by Robert Lohr, a ficitionalized account of the Turk using the historical characters of the time. A bit of a slow start for me but once it got going it was entertaining.
