It's July, whatcha reading?


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just finished Toby Young's Sound of No Hands Clapping, a decent comic memoir but it's no How To Lose Friends and Alienate People. Maybe because he's still the same guy, basically the same personality faults and shortcomings are involved.

Still intermittently reading shorts in AM Homes' 'Things You Should Know and TC Boyle's If The River Was Whiskey.

Not 100% sure what novel to start next. Keep meeing to try some JG Ballard, have a copy of Super-Cannes; an interlibrary loan of What's Eating Gilbert Grape should be in soon (such a great movie, and it was a debut novel so I'm curious).
