43. Harry Turtledove - Upsetting The Balance
44. Irvine Welsh - Trainspotting

That leaves me with 8 blank spots. I'm sure I'll discover some books along the way this year that I can fill in those spots with.

I'd also like to point out that I have all of those books on my Kindle and they didn't cost a dime and you'll notice they're in alphabetical order by author's last name because Kindles kick fucking ass like that. Get on board. Google is opening an eBook site before the end of the year. It's game over for paper.

I am pretty pumped that you are going to read Eating Animals. Its interesting and I think you will like it.

I read Columbine and it was pretty awesome. It was upsetting, for sure, but if you can make it through the really sad shit, it's good stuff.

I have heard good things about Packing for Mars.

Naked was pretty good but my favorite of his is When You are Engulfed in Flames. By far my favorite.

I'm really interested to read Columbine because I actually know Brooks Brown (via the internet, of course but I've hung out with him). He's a really good dude and it's interesting to read about somebody you actually know.
