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.
