Winter Reading List


Add a pet hamster named Todd and some Tastykake wrappers and you have my future apartment

If you know me you know I read a lot and that I’m a nerd/weirdo 50% of the time.  So every year at Xmas I get a bunch of books and start plowing through them.  This year though since I’ve moved home my free time has gone up and my social engagements have gone down.  As a result I’m burning through the books quicker than anticipated.  Below is a list of what I got for this winter, and I can recommend just about all of them at this point.  So I’m looking for suggestions.  I’ll read just about anything.  Seriously, anything.  I once read the DMX biography E.A.R.L.  That’s not a joke.  Don’t be shy.  This is a judge free zone.
