I read Pledged by Alexandra Robbins awhile ago. It is a great book. Robbins pledges a sorority somewhere in the South, and basically writes about what she sees and hears from her sorority sisters. It's really insightful, though sometimes tough to read because of some of the activities that the girls partake in. It's definitely a real world perspective on sororities- so be prepared. However, if you enjoy documentary type books this is a good one to pick up.

I read this book for the first time in college. I absolutely loved it. This is my type of book. It's a memoir, and it's very personal. Lauren F. Winner is an orthodox Jew who converts to Christianity. This book is all about her spiritual journey. It is brilliant. It's funny, insightful, personal, and thoughtful.
I am re-reading it right now for my church book club that I'm in. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys memoirs, especially religious and/or cultural ones. Enjoy!

Columbine, by Dave Cullen
Very detailed inside facts that the author spent 10 years researching. It so eye opening and really reveals a lot of things the media made wrong and gives a very close picture of both boys lives/minds/ and plans. Its over 300 pages, but I read it in a day and half. Obviously non-fiction, but ready easily.
