Greeting fellow Cannonballers!
As the Summer of 2011 starts to show itself, I am retreating to the comforting cool dark of my basement to begin the second leg of my Cannonball, the Crusades. Like their namesake, these wars are poorly planned, incredibly ambitious and ultimately doomed to failure. I’m hoping to get enough reading done in the next 2-3 months to justify attempting a Double Cannonball (104 books in 52 weeks) Given that I’m only about 3 books ahead of the regular Cannonball, this is probably a pipe dream.
What I need is a map. Or in normal terms, book recommendations. I have a brand-new Kindle with a lot of free space that needs filling. I’ll be pulling novels off the main CBRIII blog, a number of book podcasts I’ve picked up in the past 5 months and the recommendations of friends, but I’m not confidant that I’ll have enough great options to pick from so I’m opening it up to everyone’s entire library. I’m particularly interested in things that aren’t already on this blog, but if you feel the need to plug something that’s down near the bottom, that’s cool too.
IF ANYONE TELLS ME TO READ THE HUNGER GAMES I WILL STAB THEM! If I wanted to read Battle Royale again, I’d read Battle Royale again. Leave me alone.
Everything else is on the table so let me have it! We Ride for Xanadu!
