Anyone Out There?

This week's quote that has caught my eye:
A man will turn over half a library to make one book. ~Samuel Johnson
Yes, yes, Mr. Johnson, we know. Good readers make good writers. We get it. You are preaching the the choir, sir. So with that in mind, and with summer right around the bend (bringing with it hours and hours of sitting outside in the backyard with the sprinklers running for my two-year-old to bounce around in), I need some reading suggestions. Fun, exhilarating, exciting reads. So, hit me with your best shot readers- anyone read anything good lately???

  7. I'm sorry, all of these suggestions are great examples of really really crappy writing. Save for Harry Potter...but you should read some classics! The Stranger by Camus! Count of Monte Cristo! Shakespeare! The Bell Jar! Come on guys

  8. I've never heard of the Stranger. I think that might have to go on my list!
