I love that book, such a great insight into the mind of an autistic kid and so very moving. Effortless writing, and deceptively simple. Funny, sad and just plain great.

Among others, I've just finished Jimmy Carter's book, and I highly recommend it for its simple, straightforward view of 60 years+ Israeli/Arab nation conflicts.

Also finished 9 of Archer Mayor's regional Vermont mysteries--a good read all.
