The A** Is A Poor Receptacle For The Head: Why Democrats Suck At Communication, And How They Could Improve by Barry Eisler was the first book I borrowed from the Lending Library since I have just finished the entire John Rain series by Barry Eisler (some audio books; some ebooks) - highly recommend:
Rain Fall
Hard Rain
Rain Storm
Killing Rain
The Last Assassin
Requiem for an Assassin
The Detachment
Fault Line -standalone
Inside Out -Fault Line sequel

My second Lending book is the first in the series of the Hunger Games.
Water for Elephants is a pretty good book - read it before I got the Kindle.
I loved all of Eisler's except for The Detachment. He turned Rain into "just one of the guys" which he simply is NOT. I wrote Barry about that one. I would like more Rain being Rain but I realize that the protagonists get stale for their creators after a while.

1st one is cool due to the action and pace. 2 and 3 are slower and not as exciting and dont hold you as tightly interested.
#1 I read in 2.5 days almost non-stop due to the page turning goodness.
Yeah, I'll probably read them eventually, assuming they are still available in the lending library when I get the mood to read them.

I'm reading Ice by Ed Mc Bain. Last month's book didn't work out. It was so forgettable that I have no memory of what it was.

Im reading "The Last Lecture" Randy Pausch currently.
Very powerful and moving and makes you cry, especially when you are dealing with something similar, as I just spent 2.5 months in the hospital and still recovering at home for mouth cancer. I had major surgery on my mouth and reconstruction and radiation treatments.

I highly suggest this one. Get a box of Kleenex ready for sure
