Day Thirteen: A fictional book

From Goodreads.com
Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose.

On a hot summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’s incomplete grasp of adult motives–together with her precocious literary gifts–brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century.

Day Fourteen: A non-fictional book

Journalist Bob Greene embarked on a long journey across the breadth of the nation, hoping to spend time with Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George Bush and Ronald Reagan. The result of his odyssey is Fraternity.

Day Fifteen: Fanfic...

Umm, fanfic? I can't say I've ever read a fanfic. (Should that be one word?) The only ones I have ever heard of were for Twlight, so here's the first thing that popped up on Google for Twilight fanfic: http://www.fanfiction.net/book/Twilight/
