I just read:
- A Dirty Job
- You Suck
- Practical Demonkeeping

If you like irreverent quality writing, check him out.

(I sure hope some of his books get made into movies!)

I had never heard of him, but thanks for the suggestion. One of the reasons I don't read is because there are just so many books that I can't decide what to try, so I appreciate hearing what other people like.

I just want you to know that I bought Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. I have three or four other books to read before I get to this one, but I hope I like it!

People I know have loved "Lamb", but I haven't gotten to it yet.

I really enjoyed Lamb. It's interesting because I'm very non-religious, so the whole time I read I was wondering what was real and what wasn't. As a result of my unfamiliarity with the story of Jesus, I'm sure there were jokes that went over my head. Even without those, it was a great book.

I think I'll read A Dirty Job next. One of my friends recommended it.

I'm one-third of the way through Lamb now, and I'm LOVING it. How dare you all not have forced me to read it sooner . I started reading it right after finally reading Da Vinci Code, so having all that serious religious stuff floating in my head is definitely helping me catch some inside jokes and ironies.

Um, I just finished A Dirty Job today, and it was beyond fantastic. I laughed, I cried, and I think I fell in love with Charlie.
