Books are awesome.

In the two years and a month I've been with this company, I have not taken any vacation time.  I discovered recently that I have three weeks of it saved up.  Alex, my boss, insisted that I dedicate one full, consecutive week, forty paid hours, to vacationing before the end of this summer.  So after I put in a few hours tomorrow to catch up on things, I won't be returning until a week from Tuesday.

I plan to do absolutely nothing that is important or momentous.  It's going to be fantastic.  My only ambition is to catch up on some reading.  That's the only reason I'm writing this.  I'd like suggestions on things that need reading, even if you're not sure I haven't read it already.  That or just talk about your own summer reading list.  I've read fuck-all but things I already own, for the most part, for the last couple of years.  It's pitiful.  Help a fellow out.

I just finished Choke by Chuck Palahniuk and am halfway through Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.

If you have not read The Time Traveler's Wife yet, get on that.

Phantoms in the Brain, by Ramachandran and Blakeslee. DO IT.

However, I'd also like to put in a good word for traveling. Traveling: It's Kinda Expensive, But It's Also Kinda More Educational Than Reading.
