I’m always taking suggestions as well, especially poetry.

Tomorrow I get my St. Joe County Library Card.

  1. Depressing bunch of books. Lighten up between by reading Richard Russo’s ‘Straight Man’.
    I would stay away from ‘The Corrections’. Read it and wanted to throw it across the room. Depressing book about dysfunctional siblings and a 50’s era marriage. Not a fun read, may be well written, but who cares when it makes you feel so damned awful reading it?
    Randomly surfed your way. Good luck on that list.

  2. Yeah, read only happy books, watch happy movies, listen to happy music, talk to happy people, think happy things. Jesus Christ, now I’m angry.

    Anyway: Space Merchants. A possible addition, unless you’ve already read it. And for the love of God, read The Corrections, but maybe not before A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.
