So last week I wrote about my Blockbuster queue. I'm sure you remember.
Continuing our tour, today I thought I'd point out the "I am currently reading" thingy directly above "In the Queue." Yes, I admit it internet, I am a reader. Don't hate me.
Now I understand that some of you may not be very observant when it comes to things like "words", however unlike my movie queue, the I am Currently Reading thing has a bright, shiny picture of a book, which at some time or another may have attracted your attention.
As you can see, high-brow son of a bitch that I am, I'm currently reading the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz. This is heady stuff people, the story of a fat, awkward, nerdy, Dominican teenage virgin, growing up and looking for love in New Jersey; lots of historical background s*it on El Jefe and the Dominican Republic. In short, this ain't no bathroom reader (though, ironically, that's where I finished it. I'm not making this up).
However, after all this cerebral sh*t, I like to unwind with something from the lowbrow side of the tracks; something more rippling and sultry.
So, what'll it be, Viking Warrior or The Half-Breed? And hurry up, 'cause I gotta use the can.
