I'm in for this. Getting rid of my TV and computer soon, and just bought a Kindle, will hopefully be reading a lot. May be too late to hop on board, but fuck it, I'll give it a try...
So far this year I've read:
1. Evolution of a Cro-Magnon by John Joseph - 3rd time reading this. It's fucking amazing, I love this book so much, probably one of the best books I've ever read, no lie. It's not literary or sophisticated in any way, but the way that John Joseph writes like he's sitting there telling the reader the stories about his life is crazy.
2. Crazy From the Heat by David Lee Roth - I told someone that I was reading the John Joseph book and they suggested this. David Lee Roth seams like a much deeper and more interesting guy than he gets credit for. I loved this book. I tracked down a 1st edition copy for a christmas gift for someone that loves reading and music.
3. ReImagining Detroit by John Gallagher - I'm moving to Detroit in a few weeks so I've been reading up on the city as much as possible. This book mostly envisions a Detroit of the future that relies on urban farming and progressive thinking to survive rather than hoping the motor industry comes back to it's former glory. Interesting book.
4. Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay - Love the show, can't wait for it to come back on. I guess the book was pretty good. Good popcorn book you could say. I was worried that it would be exactly the same as the show but by the end of the book it had turned in a different direction completely. I've heard that the later books completely veer from the show storyline. I will most likely be reading the whole series eventually.
5. When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris - Classic Sedaris here. No more, no less. A few people who I've spoke to about it have lost interest in this guy and I can see why. His stories ramble on a bit, and rarely have any 'punch' to them, but they're great for reading on the subway to and from work. If you like Sedaris' past work, there's no reason not to like this book.
