Going to the book store directly after work to pick up Dharma Bums.


Thats my favorite kerouac. I just finished reading Moby Duck (this not a typo). Thinking about some Vonnegut again for my next choice but i also just picked up Hotel New Hampshire so i may start in on that one.

I AM THE MESSENGER


It is only loosely coined a series because the connectedness between stories is minimal. My wife keeps a lot of teen fiction on hand for her 8th grade students to borrow so my recent literary exposure has been to those or I am also reading with my five year old son. Just finished "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus" which was riveting from start to finish.

I also carry around a copy of Fifty shades of Gray to help strike up conversations with "Cougars" in coffee shops and diners. You would be amazed at where this can lead. You could sit on the same side of the booth and read it together.
LOL just kidding but if I were young and single I might try this.
And leave it on!

Recommendation, Finger prints of the Gods, by Graham Hancock

On the slate for reading is Last Go Round, by Ken Kesey with Ken Babbs

Also, Darkstar an oral biography of JG, by Robert Greenfield (Awesome garage sale score from last year I forgot about!)



Any thoughts on Darkstar? Anyone here read it?

Lost it? That sucks.

I'm sure you can score another copy at a second hand store living in SF?

I think I'm gonna start this one today

I felt bad when you lost your bag of stuff man.

As for me, I'm still trying to finish off the March issue of Playboy.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

Becoming Odyssa - Jennifer Pharr Davis

I tend to only read nonfiction and so far this has been a great book about the Appalachian Trail and human spirit.

Anyone have any good recommendations for a nonfiction??
