The Official Amazon Kindle Owner's Lending Library Thread - The Good Finds

So what are some books you've enjoyed that are available in the Kindle Owner's Lending Library?

I've got a TON of books in my reading pile, so for the past couple of months I've been using the lending library for Kindle Singles since they are pretty quick reads. So far I've enjoyed:

Why Beer Matters

Comic-Con Strikes Again!

I borrowed some of the "Richard Castle" books but haven't read them yet.

I enjoyed Regarding Ducks and Universes by Neve Maslakovic. Was a fairly easy read. Not a stellar book, but enjoyable.

I just finished Moneyball by Michael Lewis -- the first Kindle book I've borrowed since getting an actual Kindle Touch (which I love). It's a fascinating book, unsurprisingly very different from the film but still excellent. Glad I got it for free. Thinking about swapping it for Hunger Games, but intrigued by Flowertown. Anyone read that book (Flowertown by S. G. Redling) yet?

BTW : this is a useful link to a list of all the Prime Eigible books. Actually almost all, as the Harry Potter books don't show up (since they're not available for purchase).

Just a last-of-the-month bump. That link i posted is still the best way to browse the library, and it's nowhere to be found on Amazon's site. Why they make it so eifficult to see what they offer is totally beyond me.
Noticed Michael Lewis' The Blind Side is now a Prime book (it wasn't before). I liked the book Moneyball so much that I'm going to ignore my distaste for the sappy movie and give this a read.

Thanks for the link (a year ago, but I just noticed it )

I've been reading all these teenage-girl aimed books by Connie Willis and some other lady (Water Witch, Promised Land, Light Raid). Stuff I wouldn't pay for by an author I like. I'm definitely glad I didn't pay, but it's a quick read and some of it is entertaining (just too much romanciness for me).

When I want to find a new book to borrow, I have to come back to this thread and find that post. I don't know where I found it before, but I can never find that link on Amazon's site. It's super-annoying.
