Lolita is the best novel ever written.

I just bought the book by Jon Stewart.

I'm reading White Boy Shuffle by Paul Beatty, for my hip hop writing class, and surprisingly I'm enjoying it. It's a good book, funny in a scary way (not horror scary, just the idea of it all). Anyone heard/read it?

some books I'd love to recapture the feeling I had reading it the first time, but instinct tells me not to bother, especially with the books I loved as a teenager, I'm not that kid anymore.

Anyhow...
