The Hunger Games Series <3
The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir - story is dominated by Henry and the devolution of his character from an ``affable,'' ``gentle,'' and gifted (he wrote poetry) lover, soldier, and ruler into a porcine, paranoid, impotent old man who was exploited and manipulated by courtiers and women, some of whom he imprisoned, beheaded, or hanged. Recommend whether a history buff or not, filled with interesting information
Very interesting. The author does a great job of giving just the right amount of background information.

"The Six Wives of Henry VIII" by Alison Weir I have always been fascinated by the Tudor dynasty. This book was an excellent historical book.
My favorite book about Henry VIII & his wives
Best one, but all of Alison Weir's non-fiction is enjoyable and well worth reading.
The Six wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir http://www.refinery29.com/beach-reads#slide8 "This makes me sound like an insufferable book snob, but I re-read Alison Weir's The Six Wives Of Henry VIII approximately every other year. It's quality writing, but in terms of content it's like the US Weekly of Tudor history. Nothing distracts me from my own problems more than reading about what these ladies went through. I may be having a crappy day — but at least I'm not locked in a ...
I have love medieval British history, primarily Henry VIII. This was my first by Alison Weir and as far as historical non-fiction goes, she is my favorite. Slowly starting a collection by her and so glad the 2nd hand bookstore near me has her books at a better price.

High Fidelity - Nick Hornby. Another favourite of mine (with a brilliant film adaptation). I was given a proof copy signed by the author as a gift.
"People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands - literally thousands - of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss." — Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Songs My Mother Taught Me - Brando's own words... and one of my favorite books
Brando: Songs My Mother Taught Me: Marlon Brando, Robert Lindsey
Songs My Mother Taught Me, 468 pages of Brando's childhood/adulthood in his own words. His mother's creativity, father's abuse, farm living, took his pet raccoon to his NYC apt, never wanted to become an actor, never finished school, grave digger. Most comfortable when taking care of others, humanitarian, civil rights activist, all of his marriages were to women of a different race, I believe he was bipolar but there's no evidence. Slept with a mentally ill stalker, felt ashamed.
Some pretty good reads here...

Jasper Johns (born 1930) | Thematic Essay | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Three Flags by Jasper Johns (1958) The American flag is something “the mind already knows,” Johns has said, but its execution complicates the representation and invites close inspection. A critic of the time encapsulated this painting’s ambivalence, asking, “Is this a flag or a painting?”

On the Road by Jack Kerouac My favorite book ever
On the Road. If you're in for a dedicated read, it's worth reading the unabridged version
"On the Road" is a novel by American writer Jack Kerouac, written in April 1951, and published by Viking Press in 1957. It is a largely autobiographical work that was based on the spontaneous road trips of Kerouac and his friends across mid-century America. It is often considered a defining work of the postwar Beat Generation that was inspired by jazz, poetry, and drug experiences. Chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005.
