"Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter" by Mario Vargas Llosa
Many story strands make you wonder where this book is going, if anywhere. The main theme involves a radio station in Peru which broadcasts soap operas. Eventually, the strands are intertwined and you realize that there really is a message in the author's work, and in the soap opera of life.
"Born to run" By Christopher McDougall
Removing the myth that running requires special exercises and equipment, author McDougall argues, running is at the heart of what it means to be human. We follow the amazing Tamarahura tribe runners in Cooper Canyon to ultra marathoners; all end up in a race of fifty-miles through the heart of Tarahumara country, pitting the tribe against an odd band of Americans racers. Fun page turning!

Rather than mail her correspondence Harold decides to walk 600 miles to deliver his message in person. His trek is peppered with fascinating characters who help unlock Harold's buried spirit and renew his sense of life.
