Five for Friday: Goodbye, not-so-happy ending

There's nothing worse than an otherwise good book ruined by a bad ending. I finished Chuck Klosterman's "Downtown Owl" this week and was thoroughly disappointed. His first novel was living up to expectation via developed characters and an interesting plot, which was then negated by a random, abrupt close. So I thought it appropriate to share a few books that won't bum you out upon conclusion. 

I'd love suggestions on what page turners you're into right now. I likely won't get any reading done this weekend as the fiance and I are recovering from last night's WSU men's basketball game against Arizona in Tuscon and have an alumni gathering in Tempe before the Cougs play Arizona State on Saturday. 

And did I mention it's the start of Arizona Beer Week? Happy Weekend!
