BOOK CLUB!!! so i am sitting in my room because i should be doing something productive but instead i decide that though you never really existed, i miss you and need you in my life, but i look at the daunting book list and am intimidated, so, in lieu of productivity, i write down literally ALL of the books on the list on little pieces of paper and put them in a hat and draw five at random, thinking that maybe we can start with those books in that order. books are as follows:
1. the communist manifesto (hahaha)
1 alternate: jim morrison biography
2. the stranger by albert camus
3. gone with the wind
4. one flew over the cuckoo's nest
5. steal this book by abbie hoffman
6. love in the time of cholera
7. the lovely bones by alice sebold

what do you kids think?

i'm feeling "love in the time of cholera," only because it's almost february and valentine's day and lovey dovey. "the communist manifesto" works for me too, though. haha. also, on the subject of books, why have i never read "the best american non-required reading" books? i'm reading the 2007 one now and it is fantastic!

The only book I have read and can vouch for from that particular selection is The Lovely Bones. As mesmerizing as it is sorrowing, I sincerely hope you get as lost in the In Between as I do :)
