Here are the books I found in the last 2 weeks that sounded interesting. All quotes are from the blogs I found them at.
Here is what others found.

The Customer is Always Wrong: The Retail Chronicles edited by Jeff Martin – found at The Book Lady’s Blog.
“Editor Jeff Martin brings us a hilarious collection of essays by writers who “have done their time behind the counter and lived to tell their tales.””

Deadly Little Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz – found at Shooting Stars Mag

“Camelia ended last year with a mysterious boy saving her life. As school is about to start once more, all she can think about is this boy and the way his touch made her feel. Her friends, Kimmie and Wes, think she should simply get it over it and move on with her life, but when Camelia finally meets Ben, she becomes too wrapped up in his world to let go.”

365 Nights: A Memoir of Intimacy by Charla Muller – found at Age 30+… a lifetime of books. (scroll down)

“a memoir of a woman who gave her 40 yr old husband a birthday gift of sex every day for a year.”

Just Checking by Emily Colas – found at Nonfiction Lover (she didn’t like it much but it looks good to me)

“A compilation of random scenes from the life of a person afflicted with the obsessive compulsive disorder.”

The Secret of the Great Pyramid by Bob Brier and Jean-Pierre Houdin – found at Nonfiction Lover

“It all started when Jean-Pierre Houdin (who was not an expert on Egyptian anything but was a well-known and successful architect in France) watched a special on TV about how the Great Pyramid was built. Except as he watched the show, he realized that the two explanations given (the two that were always given as being the only possible ways it could have happened) didn’t make any logical sense. His builder’s mind went to work, and he realized that there had to be another way.”
