One of Our Thursdays Is Missing (by Jasper Fforde)

The latest Jasper Fforde book! It was the first thing I bought for my new Kindle (a birthday gift from Ian). I do love the Thursday Next series, and this one is really fun, and takes place almost entirely in the BookWorld (as opposed to the RealWorld). As funny and enjoyable as ever. Plus, there's a seventh one planned! Yay, Jasper Fforde!

I still have Shades of Grey on my "to read" pile, though. Gotta get to that one of these days.

The Namesake (by Jhumpa Lahiri)

I just finished teaching this one too (now in the middle of Oscar Wao). I haven't read Interpreter of Maladies, but I absolutely loved The Namesake. Gorgeous prose, excellent story, good class discussion. Would teach again!
