found some good ones

Just completed this one:

The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins. I enjoyed the story, but didn't like that it's part of a trilogy, so I don't think I'll read the other two books. I might check out the movie, though.

Still working on these:

Journal of a Mountain Man, James Clyman (edited by Linda M. Hasselstrom). I stumbled upon this one at a thrift store; the writings of James Clyman, describing his travels and adventures on the plains and in the mountains of the North American West in the 1800s.

Telling New Mexico: A New History, edited by Marta Weigle. This one was in the stacks at the Albuquerque Public Library, downtown. Here's what it says on the back cover:

This extensive volume presents New Mexico history from its prehistoric beginnings to the present in essays by forty-five prominent scholars and writers representing diverse disciplines including anthropology, Native American and Chicano studies, history and geography.
