oh this isnt directed at anyone, but please dont tell me to read an idiots guide to being gay and stupid or anything like that, i dont want to know how many times you read a goosebumps or rl stine novel. serious replies thank you.

 

( please proceed to rip into me by telling me to read novels such as these)

it takes alot for me to read a book more than once, let alone 3 or more times... i'm somewhere around 13 for neuromancer, and 5 for diamond age

 

as for kerouac (i hope i spelled that right), whenever i get on a kick for that shit i finish one book and just move right on to the next... i've read on the road twice, but it's not gonna get read again anytime soon...

i read the stranger... i wasn't stoked... all the existentialist stuff just doesn't do it for me... i'm not saying i'm religious, or even that i believe in god, but i just can't dig on the whole "life is a meaningless void:spent:" thing...

Since the majority of these posts propose very heavy complicated reads I will throw in a easy to read but enjoyable book I just finished.

 

The Rich Part of Life by Jim Kokoris

 

Its about a young boy who's family wins the lottery and how it affected them. The relatives coming out of the woodwork, the crazies calling at all hours to ask for money, etc. A really good lighthearted read.
