My contribution:

David Mitchell is one of my favorite authors.  I particularly liked "the
1000 autumns of Jacob de Zoet" but Ghostwritten, Black Swan Green, and
Number 9 Dream were good.


David Mitchell is loosely reminiscent of Haruki Murakami, Mr Mitchell
lived in Japan for a long time and their books incorporate dreams and
fantasy.  (Well, some anyway.)  I'd recommend:

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World


Here's the book about the UP I keep mentioning.  It's enjoyable.  Maury
Klein has just finished a 3-part series on the UP, and I like it because
it often is able to draw conclusions about larger themes, like running a
widespread organization or why corporations pay benefits in america
instead of the government.  My frustration is that it assumes you already
know A LOT about railroads; I don't.
