    This one is suggested via gchat from DMB (not the band)

    Here’s another… and it sounds crappy. World War Z. It’s a zombie book, but it’s done as an oral history after the fact and it delves into the socioeconomic and political repercussions of the zombies. For instance Cuba becomes an economic power cause its an island and didn’t get hit nearly as hard as other placesI heard Brad Pitt’s production company picked it up to make a movie

    You’ve read Handmaiden’s Tale by Margaret Atwood right?

    From TL:

    i think you should read some neal stephenson
    (snow crash)
    The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal

    when you are engulfed in flames, by david sedaris


  7. If you haven’t read The Handmaid’s Tale, you need to! Also, you should read Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh because it’s in Scottish slang and they say the c-word a lot…and I love drugs.

    Oh and anything by Jeffery Eugenides.

    And of course the TWILIGHT SAGA….DUH!


  8. The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse
    Benvenuto Cellini’s autobiography
    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
    The Poisonwood Bible
