@cduggcduggles, thank you! I am still “green”/noob...I apologize if I am creating extra work for you.

Just wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions as far as what some good books may be. I haven't read anything for awhile and am in desperate need of something to read.

My favorite authors are Irvine Welsh, Chuck Palahniuk(obviously), Craig Clevenger, William Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and Ken Keasey.

Any advice is appreciated.
Oh, the classics. Did all the possible drugs of those times. Burroughs was born in a wealthy family, didn't have to really work his whole life. Who wouldn't do drugs and write with that place?

Sure! I just finished THHT3: The Hollywood Hills Trilogy 3. It's a pop poetry book. Talks about lots of cool things and even has a Hunter S Thompson reference or two in it. Anyways, I bought you the Kindle version on Amazon, don't worry it was only 3 bucks. So yeah, you get it for free. I sent a link to your Inbox since you can't post links on Discussion Threads. Please let me know when you get it. Much Love!

what's the story that ends with a girl wandering around in a park until she freezes? i think maybe she gets locked in. could be classic literature and someone will know in a second (though google was no help, so not too classic). could be random as fuck and asking is pointless. can't remember if it's a short story or novel.

i’ve read everything easily obtainable. looks like anything more will be hard found. i see copies of the bootleg volumes online for hundreds of dollars.

Bottom 10 (in no particular order) Christine, The Dead Zone, Lisey's Story, Dolores Claiborne, The Dark Tower IV, The Dark Tower V, Cujo, Thinner, Revival, 11/22/63

I've just finished Perfume by PATRICK SUSKIND . Quite good as for me. This book played a big role in my study. I needed to write an essay about this book and it was too hard for me. I've made few parts of it but then just decided not to waste my time and asked for help here. I guess I've made right decision. Despite all these facts I really liked Perfume and now I'm going to read some other books of this author

In your head
Just picked up a book by one of my favorite authors, Mitch Albom. It's his newest one, "Finding Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family."

Waiting on delivery like


Albom is easily in my top 5 authors of all time. I'd like to eventually read all of his books but so far I only have a few under my belt.

I've read Albom before too. Good stuff! I read A Lot of science fiction & Fantasy. A thread alone could be started just on those 2 genres.
