hell, i don't even know anymore
I don't think I've read any books newer than 15 years old. Except that Tom Waits biography.
I'd rather eat in the greasy spoon too. I figure most people who have a copy of the most recent Tom Waits biography (entitled "Wild Years: the Myth and Music of Tom Waits" or something along those lines) would too.
I tried to read a Grisham book once.
