This is a book on marriage. With sequels of "Yes Dear" and "Yes Honey".
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

I hear "Yes Honey, I was listening" and "No I don't find your friends more attractive then you" are in the works

I just started Galapogos not to long ago. I had a chance to see him speek, but I got called into work. This was less than a year before he passed. I was so pissed. One of the few authors that I can read over and over again.

Other books you are required to read in college that will change you:

Seriously though OP, you should probably tell us your taste in books.

I wouldn't go that far. Lullaby and after are kinda weak. Snuff wasn't bad. Lullaby and Diary were not very good.

Oh hey, I know you're a DFW fan. Just finished A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, it's a good time, highly recommend. What a virtuoso bad-ass he was.

Man I can't believe I forgot Heinlein.

Yeah if you're going into college you have to read Stranger in a Strange Land and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and get blown away by Objectivism and Libertarianism. Also Stranger has tons of orgies so it's got that going for it also.

I should say I enjoyed reading both those books.

Right now I am reading Temple in the Forest by Mailer and it is a really good book.
