Book update

Okay killed off One Flew Over the Kuckoo's Nest today. Great stuff. That damn army nurse. Instead of Jack Nicholson as McMurphy I pictured someone more like Gene Wilder. Like this:

Here's what's still on my book list:

Ulysses, James Joyce
1984, George Orwell
The Dharma Bums, Jack Kerouac
The Subterraneans, Jack Kerouac
Middlemarch, George Elliot
Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe
Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
Endurance, Alfred Lansing

The Wiz recommends this:
High Fidelity, Nick Hornby
Not sure if the book or the Elvis Costello song influenced each other but I think the song is good. Probably didn't influence each other since the nerd put out his song in 1980 and the book came out in 1995. Here's the nerd's video.

Read these in the last few months:

Big Sur, Jack Kerouac
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ken Kesey
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
American Miler: The Life and Times of Glenn Cunningham, Paul J. Kiell
A Drinking Life, Peter Hamill
On the Road, Jack Kerouac

I like listing them because they make me feel like I'm making headway on the list, even though a few of them weren't on the list.
