In 2015 I resolve to ... Read more

I saw on facebook one of my friends read 46 books in 2014. Holy crap I was no where close to that. Admittedly, I got stuck on two very long books (thanks Geore RR Martin) and Iceberg Slim's "Pimp" which is short but the language is so hard to read sometimes. 

So in 2015 I will read more. Am I going to ready 46? Not even close. But more than this past year. 


The official first book I finished this year is Pimp (the story of my life) by Iceberg Slim. It got slow during the middle, but the redemption at the end was worth the wait. 

There was a glossary at the end which cleared up a lot of the 1940s-1950s slang that was used in the book. I wonder if I would have enjoyed the book more had I read the glossary first. I don't know, I'm probably not going to read another one of his books, but if they made a movie of Pimp, I'd watch it. 

So up next is also a book about dastardly people. I Wear The Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman. I've read at least one of his other books so I'm pretty excited to read this one.
