The Ticking Is the Bomblacks.png
by Nick Flynn. Norton, January 2010
The sequel to Flynn’s acclaimed Another Bullshit Night in Suck City combines memoir and current events in a story of new fatherhood in post-9/11 America. Short chapters and frequent references to images you might like to Google make it a good digital read.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot. Crown, February 2010
This is the kind of book you’re going to want to search, full of delicious little facts wrapped up in a true narrative about the afterlife of a woman’s cellsand how they changed science.

The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains
by Nicholas Carr. Norton, June 2010
What better book to read digitally than one about the effects of digital reading? Though, oddly, neither of Carr’s other two books are currently available for Kindle.
