The Return: Commemorated by a List of Books

I've broken continuity. Returning from Boston (sweet merciful crap, I love that place), I had a internet free Spring Break, and returning to school, I had a spare time free week of work. Now, I return, with a list of books that should be purchased and immediately sent to me, as well as a link to a short article about one of my very favorite books of all time: Erasmus' The Praise of Folly, and a link to an article about John Steinbeck that hurt my feelings (but don't worry because I have two).

Books I want to read:

Nothing to be Frightened Of

Julian Barnes

    Ruminations on death

Sputnik Caledonia
Andrew Crumey

    Strange dystopian literature

    Pure intellectual nostalgia
