Good, funny, and a page turner. If you are a fan of Adam Carolla or his type of humor you'll love it. It's not a scholarly read by any means but if you're a man and like cheap laughs while enjoying a beer by the poolside this is worth picking up.

Not very far in, but I'm finding it kind of sexist and boring.

I found it disappointing.

Just started Santaland Diaries, David Sedaris - a counterweight to the Foster Wallace. Hilarious.

Get any of his stuff, seriously.

A Week in an Airport was such a fantastic and charming essay.

The Count of Monte Cristo, by Dumas Sr.

But lately I'm too busy with work, and barely have time in the night to finish it, and if I have time, I'd rather sleep.

It is a beautiful novel with flowers of speech.

So reading 1453 about the fall of Constantinople at the hands of the Ottomans. I find it really sad for some reason.

I flipped through that over the weekend, thought it looked interesting. Would you recommend?

In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan. The book is good. Chapter 3 is sublime.
