Just finished "A Renegade History of the United States" by Thaddeus Russell. A provocative look at history, any history fan should have a copy.

FROM A REVIEW: In vivid portraits of renegades and their “respectable” adversaries, Russell shows that the nation’s history has been driven by clashes between those interested in preserving social order and those more interested in pursuing their own desires. The more these accidental revolutionaries—drunkards, prostitutes, gangsters, unassimilated immigrants, “bad” blacks—persevered, the more American society changed for the better.

(I remember the "law breakers" of the 1970's that finally forced the removal of Blue Laws from state and city books.)

“Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch” by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Wonderful book about the Apocalypse, great humor. No wonder it's a best seller and a cult favorite.

I love this quote from the book, "Crowley (An Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards)." LOL

Another good quote:
"What is this place?"
"It's the local Lovers Lane."
"Is that why it appears to be paved with rubber?"

Read “Eating the Dinosaur” by Klosterman, Chuck. He's an interesting social critic and commentator.
