    I'm reading The Grapes of Wrath. To be honest, it's kind of boring so far. (I'm 23 pages in.)

    Les Miserables and Gulliver's Travels. Hugo is unnecessarily descriptive. Swift just takes forever to say anything in general. Someone give me a novella for the love of god...

    Price is a real pro, especially with regard to realistic dialogue. I plan on reading everything he's written. "Clockers" was my first experience of him, too. Then I read "Samaritan", which I also recommend. Haven't started his latest yet.

    The class I readClockers for was Dialects and Fiction Writing

    but I do plan to read more of Price, though I don't know when because I still have David Sedaris on my shelf which I've been meaning to read for years, and I just ordered The Nimrod Flipout-Etgar Keret (I read an excerpt from it for a class and "The Veldt" Ray Bradbury (Which I've already read, but its one of my, not my favorite short story)

    oh and I want to also get around to reading Catch 22, why can't I just be like read a book then decide what to read next instense of having a whole list of books I want to read?

    ooh and Choke-Chuck Palahniuk

    Believe it or not, YES MAN is a fantastic book. I am speaking of the book that was later drafted into a screen play and made into a Jim Carrey movie. The book and the movie are two separate things. The book still retains all it's credibility in my opinion. You will be glad you read it!
