I'm reading the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. I know it's been out for awhile. But I was sleeping. Wonderful book so far. A real joy to read.

I was getting sick of pretensious annoying reads, and just wanted some damn good writing. Which is what we've got going in full effect here. Time just disapears and the pages melt off the covers.

Go.
read.

No More Prisons is a sorry excuse for a book.

Fast Food Nation is my suggestion.

Hey Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland
Ché Guevara: A Biography by Daniel James (the James book is good because it doesn't try to hand sainthood to Mr. Guevara like many of the other biographies about him do.)
