May 2015 reading:

28. Up Jumps the Devil, by Michael Poore (368 pages)
This novel is from the perspective of the Devil. Kicked out of heaven (with God stealing his girlfriend, no less) and too proud to try going back, he decides to make humanity and Earth better than heaven. Or tries, anyway. Definitely a quirky book, well-written and engaging.

29. Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls: Essays, Etc., by David Sedaris (275 pages)
As with other Sedaris books I've read, this one kept me reading, and led to a night of no sleep. His biting wit always captures my attention, but I especially liked his piece about his obsessive journaling. This piece really gave a clear picture of how he gets the inspiration for much of what he writes. Enjoyable. And the poem at the end had me in stitches.
