Chalked Up by Jennifer Sey -- actually very good
Every Boy's Got One by Meg Cabot -- entertaining *shot*

"Winter in Madrid" by C J Sansom - it's pretty good for a "spy" novel

The Odyssey by Homer (Fitzgerald translation, 1961 printing)
This beats the Iliad by miles. Odysseus is the man.

The Boy Who Drew Monsters, by Keith Donohue, my favorite modern day author.
It's not due for a release until October this year, but I was able to get my hands on an advance reader's copy early. I loved it before I even started reading it...

The Wind Up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami (in translation from the Japanese) - apparently it was cut in some significant places when it was translated from the Japanese.
(I hate it when publishers do that...)

I know this sounds kinda crazy, but there IS a children's book called "Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night". It's a rhyming book about what trucks, construction vehicles, and tractors do to get ready for bed. Here are the first 4 lines:
Where do diggers sleep at night?
Do they dream of holes they dug?
Do their mothers reach front to backhoe
When they give a goodnight hug?
