Dragon Teeth, by Michael Crichton

In 1876, the hunt for ancient bones is more thievery than science. When a spoiled Yale student takes a bet that he can’t survive one summer in the Wild West with paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh, he’s in way over his head.

His boss might be paranoid, but the bullets are real.

A Guilty Pleasure Coming-of-Age Story with Hidden Depths

Clan of the Cave Bear, by Jean M. Auel

$2.99 Kindle Sale! ($8.99)

This was a total guilty pleasure for me when I first read it. (And not just this book, but the whole series.) I hadn’t thought of it in ages, but then I discovered that it’s on sale. So today, you get a review and a sale. Not too shabby.
