Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Read and really enjoyed this one, if you can say you enjoyed a book filled with the author's pain. I have seen Ali on Bill Maher several times and agreed with many of her views on women's rights and not allowing intolerance in the name of tolerance. Her personal story is so desperately sad, moving and in many ways inspiring. When i first started it i read about 2 chapters and put it down because i didn't think i could handle the "downer" with my own mental state being so off right now. But it kept coming back to me; i began reading it again and i felt so much for her as a person and her struggle to survive that it brought me out of my own funk a little bit, at least while i was reading. Highly recommended but not for the squeamish.

currently: at work, ugh!
