I've read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, American Born Chinese and Dirty Secret and they're all winners!

Glad to see you like some of my recommendations! I hope you get around to reading them.

I like the sounds of What's Up Down There although I'm not sure I'd learn anything new as I've read up on the subject many times before.

Bermudaonion- Great! sounds like I have some good ones on the list.

Callista- I hope I get around to reading them soon, too. Seems like I always add books to my list and then take forever to read them!

I'm half way through Henrietta Lacks and loving it - I recommend getting the audio version :-)

The Undertaking and American Born Chinese are both on my list. I actually had American Born Chinese checked out from the library a few months ago but had to return it before I got to read it!
