I dedicate this to the people in Queens. A gentleman I know by the name of Dave Hill (http://davehillonline NULL.com) made this and the first time I saw it I laughed heartily. You’ll only get this if you live in NYC and have seen this local commercial.
I can’t buy anymore books. That’s what happens when I start getting money. I’ll wander into a bookstore and just pick up the first 5 things that my eye catches. What can I say? I like knowledge. Eh, ladies? Knowledge.
These are the last few things I picked up.
Misquoting Jesus (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Misquoting-Jesus-Story-Behind-Changed/dp/0060738170/sr=8-1/qid=1158162497/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) by Bart D. Ehrman – heard about this in TIME in a little snippet from Craig as in THE Craig from Craigslist.
Microthrills (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Microthrills-True-Stories-Small-Highs/dp/1594630194/sr=1-1/qid=1158162954/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) by Wendy Spero – had met Wendy before but was reintroduced to her at a few NYC comedy shows. She’s very funny and might be the single most adorable person I’ve ever met.
The Paradox of Choice (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Paradox-Choice-More-Less-P-S/dp/0060005696/sr=1-2/qid=1158163200/ref=pd_bbs_2/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) by Barry Schwartz – saw this a long time ago when I purchased “Mediated” which is one of my new favorite books.
Soul on Ice (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Soul-Ice-Eldridge-Cleaver/dp/038533379X/sr=1-1/qid=1158163521/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) by Eldridge Cleaver – a classic book of essays written during the 60s by a disenfranchised angry black man. My cup of tea.
Lew Hunter’s Screenwriting 434 (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Lew-Hunter-Screenwriting-434-Successful/dp/0399529861/sr=1-2/qid=1158163913/ref=pd_bbs_2/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) – a friend suggested I get this if I want to write movies. It helped him a great deal.
Death etc. (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Death-Etc-Harold-Pinter/dp/0802142257/sr=8-1/qid=1158170261/ref=sr_1_1/102-9816849-2661703?ie=UTF8&s=books) by Harold Pinter – a small collection of short plays, poems and speeches by my favorite playwright and Nobel Prize winning author.
I still have many books I haven’t read. I need to just read EVERYTHING on my bookshelf. I don’t know what it is about having a bunch of books on it that makes me feel like I have an identity. I’ve read maybe 75% of what I have.
Git ta readin!
