All My Life for Sale by John D. Freyer
All My Life for Sale
by John D. Freyer
recommended for: People who shoot first and ask questions later
read in June, 2005
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is a well-executed experiment. John Freyer sold everything he owned on eBay, from the salt shaker in his cupboard to the shirt off his back. On one level, it's interesting to see how much a person's life is worth, sort of like a living esta ...more

Civil War Land in Bad Decline by George Saunders
Civil War Land in Bad Decline: Stories and a Novella
by George Saunders
recommended for: People who like to spin and/or unravel a good yarn
read in January, 2006
Rate this book
Clear rating
I just remembered that I read this book. Not that it's forgettable, exactly. But let's just say a little bit of Saunders goes a very long way. The title story Civil War Land in Bad Decline is hands-down the best of the bunch. Saunders' storytelling i ...more

Meet Mr. Product by Warren Dotz
Meet Mr. Product: The Art of the Advertising Character
by Warren Dotz
recommended for: People who make crafts with googly eyes
read in January, 2005
Rate this book
Clear rating
You don't read this book as much as you get this book. It compiles mountains of company mascots and spokes-characters since the beginning of print advertising. The evolution of personification is an interesting one in my opinion, but I can certainly ...more

I Like You by Amy Sedaris
I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence
by Amy Sedaris
recommended for: NYCDIY'ers
read in October, 2006
Rate this book
Clear rating
I liked I Like You, but I felt the joke got a little old. Not that there's a joke, exactly. I guess when it comes to low-budget entertaining, a little goes a long way for me.

Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
Choke
by Chuck Palahniuk (Goodreads Author)
read in January, 2003
Rate this book
Clear rating
I had high expectations for Choke, and rightly so. However, I felt the main characters were retreads of characters from other Palahniuk books. I will say that the book got better as it went on. Maybe I have an appetite for unusual circumstances, but ...more

Carnet De Voyage is a sketch/travel journal maintained by Craig Thompson during one of his press junkets to Africa and Europe. It's a well-documented read that really makes you feel as though you're with him. The most satisfying pages are the candid ...more
