|Behold a sampling of our massive collection of books|
The photo above is only a sampling of the books we bought at our favorite used book store, Camelot Books in Fountain Valley, California. There are a few in there I received as birthday gifts, and a couple others I purchased from Barnes & Noble and/or Borders.

Anyhoot, some of the stories are hilarious, but because Tucker prides himself on being such a major (place proper expletive), I can only handle a couple stories at a time before wanting to use the book as a doorstop. I heard that Hollywood even made a movie out of this book...how!? None of the stories relate with one another.
|Thank you goodreads.com!|
Here's a list of what else is on the shelf:
- Star Wars: Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina - edited by Kevin J. Anderson
- Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card (both tsudoku and my brother have recommended this book to me on several occasions)
- The Perfect Wife - Victoria Alexander (another bodice-ripper with a pretty cover)
- Dragonflight - Anne McCaffrey (tsudoku loved the Pern series a lot when he was a kid and he's been nominating this book as a "must read" for years)
- We the Living - Ayn Rand (I'm too intimidated to read Atlas Shrugged and figured I had better start with a much smaller novel, which also happens to be her first novel)
- Pygmy - Chuck Palahniuk (one of my favorite authors)
- On the Road - Jack Kerouac (this was a birthday gift from @DavidisALLright)
- And Then - Natsume Soseki
- Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoevsky
- The Bird Artist - Howard Norman
- Mentally Incontinent - Joe Peacock (this was given to me around my birthday by @chickenlittle; she's friends with the author so she bought a few copies to give away as gifts...or just to have them)
- The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
- Sons and Lovers - D.H. Lawrence (another one of my favorite authors)
- Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Fury - Aaron Allston (actually, I don't think this one's for me...must be tsudoku's pick)
- The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Children of Hurin - J.R.R. Tolkien (I picked this and The Silmarillion because I found myself missing Middle Earth after I finished The Lord of the Rings trilogy)
It's only the end of February and so far I've read a total of 4 books - I'm 14% into my goal! If you want to see how I'm doing with the Reading Challenge, check out goodreads.com/vickipedia.
