I finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman. The premise is that every god that any person in America ever believed in was personified and those who no longer had followers were left rather destitute, and for a modern twist it included gods of technology. A regular guy gets pulled into this secret world of gods and the story ensues. I thought it was a really interesting read.
I am moving on now to Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi.
