I utterly failed at last year's New Year's resolution to watch less junk TV and read more, so I'm trying again this year. The difference this time is that I'm armed with a brand new Kindle!
So who's read a good novel lately? I've read a bunch of non-fiction lately (I highly recommend Patty Smith's new memoir as well as McCollough's book about the Brooklyn Bridge) so I want to get some fiction.
To help with the suggestions...Ernest Hemingway is my all-time favorite author. But my other standbys are mostly mid-century American authors like John Cheever and Jack Kerouac. Modern stuff I like - Chuck Palahniuk, Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Wolfe, Jonathan Lethem, and Don DeLillo.
I went off the map and downloaded The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo just because I'm intrigued.
Anybody got any other ideas? I'll probably consume Dragon Tattoo pretty quickly.
