    or have read.

    its the offseason. i need help.

    i should read brave new world. i never picked it up after being forced to read it in 5th grade i think it was. and never completed it. i always thought aldous huxley was black i think because i was thinking alex haley of roots. I have been reading malcolm gladwells latest, off and on anyhow. Im also thinking of doing audiobooks.

    anyhow, your turn.

    you should also read The Family Corleone.
    it's a prequel to The Godfather. Written many years later and not by Puzo, but still a pretty good read.

    Dennis Lehane's Kenzie and Gennaro series, very good sleuth books takes place in Boston. Has everything, serial killers, gangsters, drugs, mafia, mystery, and Bubba Rogowski the greatest book character ever invented. Anyone who threatens to kill everyone if they play Morrisey's or the Smith's How Soon Is Now is a man after my own heart.

    That's the 4th or 5th in the series. Not even the best book in the series. The 1st and 2nd are fucking rad.
