Books for Guys who like to ReadPosted: January 13, 2012
it’s friday and i’m about to go watch “the girl with the dragon tattoo” so i thought i’d make a quick post before showering and heading out. when i’m done with the movie i’m meeting up with some friends and eventually i’ll get to answering the Blog Ho thriller *rolls eyes* lol. i decided to go with 2 more obscure books. GREAT READS, the both of them.
The Fuck Up- by Arthur Nersesian. the protagonist is the typical american slacker as he slides in and out of bad-worse luck no matter what. he ALWAYS manages to, well….fuck up. he’s an aspiring writer and he’s just trying to survive. it’s gritty, humorous and i’ll give any reader who’s ever HEARD of this book a dollar.
On the Cobbles- by Jimmy Stockins. tells the true story of a gypsy bare-knuckle boxing champion. take “fight club” and “snatch” except, ya know……in REAL LIFE. it’s a very interesting and entertaining story. you’re getting an inside look at a lifestyle that no-one get’s see. it’s brutal, honest, heart-wrenching, yet still humorous at times. read it or i’ll break your nose.
Antique Book Mention. i’ll be adding this to booky friday to show off what i REEEEEALLY LOVE. ANTIQUE BOOKS. the first one i’ll mention is a book i picked up in NO on Royal St. it’s a collection of the complete works of H. Longfellow printed in 1898. copped it for $10. HOLLA!!!!! the only thing that sucks about collecting antique books is that i usually can’t read them. they’re WAAAY to fragile. but i’m a sucker for antique books and the stores that carry them. especially the mom and pop ones, they’re tits.
i will ALSO be posting some indie goodness as well. this week i introduce you to Dead Confederate. so, on fridays i’d ask you guys to post some indie rob gordon fave’s.
