A Little More About Me...

I consider my book collection to be a defining aspect of my personality. It seems to illustrate my quirks in ways that simple descriptions seem to fail at. 

To give you all a little better idea of the kind of person I am, here are the books I have read (or am going to read) since I graduated in December and regained my reading time:

Fig. 1: The first book I read once I was free. It was awesome, as Sedaris always is.

Fig 2: The second book I read.

Fig 3: And then I read some girly stuff.

Fig 4: Then I switched to some social neuroscience.

Fig 5: And back to the girly stuff I'm currently reading. I love this show but they're cancelling it. :(

Fig 6: This is what I intend to read next.

Am I strange enough for ya, or what? ;)

If you like Sedaris, have you read Augusten Burroughs? I think he's an even better writer than Sedaris, in the same vein of personal revelation.

Thanks, PD!

OMG, CPP - I LOVE Augusten Burroughs. He is one of my all-time favorite writers ever. I've read every single one of his books several times and he even has his own shelf in my personal library.

I like Sedaris a lot, but I think the only reason he's more popular than Burroughs is because he's more easily digested by the general public.

But as you know about me already, I love crude, foul language and off-color subject matter so Burroughs is right up my alley!

so what are your thoughts on these books? i think you have an interesting selection.

when i graduate, i'm totally doing the same thing and digging in with some good recreational reading material.

I don't see any Sarah Blaffer Hrdy on the list...just kidding! Looks like fun.

Burroughs's book about his father was staggeringly good.

JLK said...

I agree, but it was definitely a departure from his usual stuff.

"Dry" is still my favorite. I've never laughed and cried so much while reading a book.
