Slaughter House Five by Vonnegut.  Never read any of his books before and picked this up at the library's used book sale.  So far so good.  Lots of wit.

Funny you should mention wit.  The last book I was reading is The Lowest Form of Wit by Leonard Rossiter.

I just finished a book called "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck."  It was honest and refreshing and helpful in finding a little zen.

That earned a real-life LOL.

I'm reading "Fool's Errand" by Robin Hobb. I enjoyed her "Farseer Trilogy," and I am finding myself enjoying the start of this new trilogy set in the same world.

Been traveling for work the past few weeks and jumped into Steinbeck's East of Eden.
Really enjoying it.  I guess the film over covers half the book.  I've read a lot of Steinbeck and this is by far the best IMO.

The Basketball Diaries by Jim Carroll
The famous diary novel that inspired the so-so film with Leo and Marky Mark.  Very easy read but not light.  I actual don't believe the stories in them to be honest and imagine they are far-fetched versions of the truth.  Still, i'd always heard of this book and of Carroll's presence in the early NY punk and art scene with Warhol and Patti Smith and wanted to check it out.

House of the Scorpion for English. I've read it before but it's a good book so I don't mind rereading.
Or is it now?
