    Just finished Slumberland by Paul Beatty.

    Currently re-reading Cat's Cradle By Vonnegut.

    The Robots of Dawn by Asimov.

    I'm about to start Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

    Yeah, I read that book recently. I just felt really sad that I understood most of the references the dorky main character made.

    I just finished "The Partner" by John Grisham.

    I really geeked out when he mentioned the Velvet Underground during the part about songs titled Here She Comes.

    Finished Crooked Little Vein last night, and I must say I found it endlessly entertaining.
