Books, books, books
I've been in a reading rut lately. I've started in on four or five different books lately, and gotten horribly bored and given up. So bored in fact, that the only one whose name I can remember is Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. I just referenced an old DCist email thread about favorite books, which lead me to ordering Kavalier & Clay, Microserfs, and A Confederacy of Dunces off of Amazon.* In the mean time while Super Saver Shipping does its thing, anybody got any good reccomendations? Something with a good story and characters that aren't loathsome? I've been particularly enjoying southern novelists and sci fi lately, so anything in those realms? Or anything at all, really. And, no need to feel like you have to suggest the most intellectual thing you've ever read either. I'm as open to an easy read as I am an enlightening one. Entertain me, people!
*I'm goin all pyg-style on your ass. In addition, also bought the complete series of Undeclared, Firefly and Freaks & Geeks. Because I am Amazon.com's biggest sucker.
