Great list! I like that you have a lot of "children's" books. Did you read Dennis Cooper's Try? Yikes. I read that over ten years ago, and it still skeeves me out when I think about it.

I did read Try. Cooper's a freak. He's such a shock-jock and showoff, that's why I kinda love him.

Ahh. You have a few of my favorites here -- mostly the YA fantasy and sci-fi stuff.

Other than my HS history teacher who recommended it, you're the *first* person I've run across to have read Fowles' Magus. What a great book! And which makes me all excited and nostalgic, as I'm about to be in Greece again at the end of the month.

A friend of mine has been persuading me to read Murakami and the bloke that penned Cloud Atlas. (It's not listed on your "30 Books" entry, I believe, but its cover is shown on the left panel)
