Book recs for my favorite t00bies  
A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson (funny and very trivia/insight-packed look at the Appalachian Trail)

Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Erenreich (a PhD. pretends she never graduated college and got jobs as a waitress, a maid, Wal-Mart, etc. in order to expose the working conditions for women without degrees)

Both these last two are nonfiction.

Also, everyone needs to go read Picture of Dorian Gray if you haven't, just because ;-) And also Watership Down (Richard Adams). Lovage the bunniesness!!

Dorian Gray
We should all read that together, or something.

Aagh, my LJ is still in Heeboo... which means that logging is slightly a bitch as it's rearranged, and I had to hunt down Shem [name] ;-)

Re: Dorian Gray
That's a good idea.

I think your computer really, really wants to be in Hebrew. Ma pitom?

Re: Dorian Gray
I think that's a good idea too. I need to read that one, as well as Watership Down

Re: Dorian Gray
I think I own Dorian Grey... and if I don't, reading it together would be a good excuse to buy it! O:) I've got to read The Handmaid's Tale first though, or Audy will beat me.

And can I just say...

Bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies!
*crickets*
Or maybe midgets...

Re: Dorian Gray
bunnies, crickets or maybe midgets... hmm, odd combination. ;)
