I think I am around a lot of people who are going through a lot of the same things
  1. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller
    Good for: looking at oneself like a character in a story, jolting creative people out of a self-sabotaging slump, framing your life in the perspective of a kid but in adult scenarios
  2. Snows of Kilimanjaro by Ernest Hemingway
    Good for: finding the balance between living and creating
  3. One More Thing by BJ Novak
    Not even just sucking up right now I will go wherever @bjnovak leads me after reading this thing. Good for: laughs, light cynicism, rethinking form, short story lovers who want something fresh
  4. Bright Lights, Big City by Jay McInerney
    Good for: sad souls who once empathized with Holden Caulfield, naysayers of the second-person format, big make-it-or-break-it transitional periods
  5. Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger
    Good for: more Salinger characters (I love the Glass family), the young but thoughtful cynic, that friend who says "I want to start reading more but I don't really have the time or know where to start"
