Books update

Haven't updated here for a while but I don't want to lose track of these books I've read...

Fall River Dreams, Bill Reynolds
Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut
High Fidelity, Nick Hornby
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
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain
A Drinking Life, Peter Hamill
On the Road, Jack Kerouac

I just ordered eight books off

The Unbearable Lightness of Being: A Novel, Milan Kundera
The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
Old School, Tobias Wolff
Tender Is the Night, F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Winning Spirit: 16 Timeless Principles That Drive Performance Excellence, Joe Montana/Tom Mitchell
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe
A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway

I started reading Endurance by Alfred Lansing but I found it pretty boring. I might go back to it at some point.

I also have Ulyses and Moby Dick sitting on the bookshelf but I'm kind of intimidated by the size/stature of them. I want something I can really sink my teeth into, understand and get through pretty quickly. I'll pick up another Nick Hornby book fairly soon but I've got a lot to get through with that last order.
