BOOKS I WISH I COULD READ AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME
Or, the upshot of losing your memory, according to my dad's friend.
- •Candide by VoltaireBecause sure, syphilis sucks, but it came back from the New World along with chocolate, so: worth it.
- •Everything Matters! by Ron Currie, Jr.No, this is not a self-help book. Yes, there's an exclamation point in the title. Yes, you should still read it.
- •A Walk in the Woods by Bill BrysonThirteen year-old me thought this was an effing riot. Can't remember the last time a book made me audibly and uncontrollably laugh.
- •A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave EggersDon't skip the liner notes.
