I actually already finished two books for my english class taught by the most... I don't want to say it but there's no other word to describe it... cool teacher ever (Mr. Estey)
I read Kurt Vonnegut's "Welcome to the Monkey House"- excellent collection of short stories and the like and Dave Barry's "Dave Barry Hits below the Beltway."
I enjoyed Vonnegut's book better cause it played to my inner kerouac-esque feelings and interests. i suggest everyone read it at some point.
