29) The Borden Tragedy by Rick Geary

Graphic "novel" (non-fiction, so is it a novel?) about the Borden murder and the discrepancies and questions which remain unanswered to this day. If we ever develop past-viewing technology, it would be interesting to see what really happened.

30) The Lost Prince by Francis Hodgson Burnette, via LibriVox.

I grew up with A Little Princess, The Secret Garden, and Little Lord Fauntleroy, but I don't think I've ever seen this one in hardcopy. Political intrigue with an unexpected vein of Buddhist teaching -- Marco and his father are living in exile from their ancestral land of Samavia, which has been torn by civil war for 500 years, since the son of the last true (but not very effective) king fled the country, although the people wanted him to replace his father. The ending is somewhat obvious to the reader from early on (or was to me, at any rate), but somehow our main character hasn't figured it out, despite ample clues.
