Conspicuous Consumption Meets Literacy

I know I'm slightly late with this, and that in the 24 hours since it's gone up the original post has received something like ~400 comments, which is insane/amazing, but over at Pajiba we're taking votes on your favorite novels of the past 15 years. Why the past 15 years? Because it's our game, and those are the rules. The goal is to come up with a list of 5-6 books people would most like to see discussed on the site, meaning we'll actually have to read them and then talk about them, so try not assign us anything too horrible. It's tough to limit myself to five, but the timeliness factor helped a little. Here's what I came up with:1. Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace 2. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Michael Chabon 3. Everything Is Illuminated, Jonathan Safran Foer 4. The Memory of Running, Ron McLarty 5. The Fortress of Solitude, Jonathan Lethem I know, I'm like a giant walking stereotype of modern twentysomething reading habits. Anyway, we're taking votes for the rest of the week, so feel free to post your own list. I think the results, once tallied, will be pretty interesting.
