Comic books are stellar. And BuzzFeed, Cracked, and 9GAG, well, they’re required daily reading. But sooner or later you gotta’ pump up the volume and actually read a BOOK. We’re not talkin’ some monster doorstopper like “War and Peace,” because trying to get through that is a war you’re not gonna’ win. However, there’s nothing wrong with flaunting some literary chops.
1. It’s summer. And nothing says summer like a mystery novel. And nothing says a mystery novel like Jo Nesbo. “The Son” is Nesbo’s latest, but you’re better off with a classic Harry Hole detective novel. Start with the serial killer thriller, “The Snowman.”
2. Two words. Jack Kerouac. Three words. “On the Road.” Need we say more?
3. Unless you’ve been abducted by aliens, you’ve probably heard of a little TV show called Game of Thrones. The show is based on graphic novels by George R.R. Martin. Skip the graphic novels and plunge into Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy series.
4. Maybe you actually want a doorstopper. Maybe you just wanna’ read one kicka** book all summer. If that’s the case, “The Goldfinch,” by Donna Tartt, is your book. This 700+ page opus has been on the New York Times Best Seller List for seven months. Tartt won the Pulitzer for it, too.
5. You may have seen Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro in the film version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but it pales in comparison to Hunter S. Thompson’s classic book of debauchery in the desert.
6. Are you moody and existential? Is life absurd? Are you misunderstood? If you answered yes to any of these questions, read “The Stranger” by Albert Camus.
7. Autobiographical and self-deprecating, David Sedaris is an American humorist. And all nine of his books are… well… humorous. His latest is “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.” LOL!
8. Despite being written way back in 1932, Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” was one of the top 10 most challenged books as recently as 2010 according to the Office of Intellectual Freedom. Read it and see why.
9. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Star Wars 7 is being released in 2015. However, science fiction writer William Gibson is credited with coining the term ‘cyberspace’. “Neuromancer” is a classic read and a great introduction to the cyberpunk genre.
10. “The Lord of the Rings.” J.R.R. Tolkien. ‘Nuff said!
And don’t worry. There won’t be a quiz. Go read, you nerds!
