If you are in to smart witty books that will have you laughing the whole way through..this is a GREAT one!

I have never read this book, but I was told by somebody years ago that it is very good. I can not remember for the life of me who the hell told me to read it, but I know it will be bugging me now. :\

On the Road, but I have a problem with not finishing a book for a while and picking up something else.

I am reading this right now. It might be the funniest thing I've ever read. I absolutely love it and I'm only 6 chapters in. Highly recommended. :upyours

Stuff White People Like

For example, #67 Standing Still at Concerts

The problem is that most of the music white people like isn't especially dance-friendly. More often the songs are about pain, love, breaking up with someone, not being able to date someone, or death.

#1 is Coffee, of course.

I just finished this book, and it was fascinating. Loads of behind-the-scenes details of what it was like at the various record companies, and about the bands signed to them, in L.A. in the mid-sixties to mid-70s.

Reading about the Tudor Monarchies (1485 - 1603) for an exam in 2 hours... and I know nothing about Elizabeth I.

Bring the pain.

it's hard for me to read a book quickly because i write and tend to focus on that, but on my nightstand i have "willard" which is taking me forever to read.

also, for anyone that cares, i have my book up online at http://www.authonomy.com/ViewBook.aspx?bookid=8859

please go there, make an account and back my book so my rank can get me closer to Harper Collins' editor's desk...oh, and you can read some of it too if you want.

Hey, I just read the summary. It looks really interesting! I'll read some of the book later. I bookmarked the page. And, I'll create an account too.

I don't like coffee either. I'm pretty sure I'm black.

You'd like this then, it's really interesting, and it covers all of the major gangs of that era... Bonnie + Clyde, John Dillinger (played by Johnny Depp in the movie coming out), George Machine Gun Kelly, etc...

My housemate is trying to get me to read Sandman by Neil Gaiman, but I finally got really into The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the girl is insisting I read Dylan on Dylan. So too bad Sandman.

Barney Hoskyns came to my uni to do a lecture!!

The poorly organised institution that my uni is though-messed up the days and notices. 2 people turned up. I was fucking gutted!

I'm reading Serve the People-Jen Lin-Liu
