Shadow of the Giant
by Orson Scott Card

Started: July 17, 2011
Finished: July 20, 2011

This wasn't bad by any means but the political talk in this book got a bit boring after a while. That being said, I'm still looking forward to seeing what happened to Bean and his kids. 363 pages. Grade: B-

Fake: Forgery, Lies, & eBay
by Kenneth Walton

Started: July 18, 2011
Finished: July 21, 2011

A reasonably interesting autobiography of Walton, who was involved in a big art fraud scandal on eBay a few years ago. 296 pages. Grade: B+

Factotum
by Charles Bukowski

Started: July 20, 2011
Finished: July 22, 2011

This might be Chinaski at his least likeable but it's still one helluva book. 205 pages. Grade: A+
