AIRFRAME Michael Crichton (Ballantine, $7.99) This thriller’s central mystery and peripheral skulduggery are routine, but the TV-journalism satire is fresh and funny.

LEADING WITH MY CHIN Jay Leno (HarperCollins, $6.50) An amiable, mildly funny pastiche of anecdotes, most interesting for what it unfortunately avoids about the talk-show host’s career.
