Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis

80's bond trading as told by a guy with an excellent wit and a flair for clever turns of phrase. It's actually very entertaining.

Kim Stanley Robinson's 2312 and wow I am pretty happy about it. I miss the Mars books and this looks like it's set in the same universe(ish).

Yes. It ruled. Infinite Jest is amazing and you should totally read it now!

I have read it! I want to reread it.

I'm reading Urth of the New Sun, the sequel-slash-continuation, which is pretty good but I dunno if I'll count it as essential when I inevitably reread BotNS at some point in the future.

Starting A Princess on Mars.


The Edgar Rice Burroughs one right? John Carter? I tried that one, got like the first few chapters in, and just couldn't do it. I really want to try again someday, but this is the first time I've just given up on a book.

Also: The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey which is based on an old Russian/Alaskan folktale about a girl made out of love from snow. It is beautiful, sad, but magical. Loved this book!


This is on my to-read list. Good to know!

I was well into 2666 when I lost my copy to a particularly savage rainstorm. I adored it but at this point it was so long ago that I'd owe it to the book to start at the beginning, and I just haven't yet had the emotional reserve to take the deep breath and dive back in.
PS: Part of me is afraid to start again, as I got far enough in to convince myself that I am not capable of dying until I've finished it.

My best friend here loves that book. You are literally reading all the same shit he is and me by proxy.

Just finished Stranger at the Palazzo de Oro and a few other short stories (http://www.amazon.com/Stranger-at-Palazzo-dOro/dp/0141011122). He's an amazing writer, and some of the subject matter is seriously fucked up.
