|Gotta go back and read the classics, once in a while. I got my hardcopy version of this in New York City, on a roadtrip while my school was on strike. It wasn't available in Canada at the time!|

|Not everything is going to be as high-brow as Dickens, nor as mature as ... well, even Mad Magazine is more mature than this.|
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, by Ken Kesey

Ralph S. Mouse, by Beverly Cleary
Mr. Popper's Penguins, by Richard and Florence Atwater
|Two authors, who wrote an entire book about having penguins, and neither looked to see that they don't come from, nor have they ever come from, the North Pole. Kind of a flaw in the story.|
Audio BooksShatner Rules, by William Shatner

|He really went in depth and through everything, if you're into it, it's worth listening to.|
