Tough call … but IMP most are quick enough reads that you can stack them up one after the next

Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors. I bought Jailbird when it came out ('79) and had read everything of his within a year or so of that. And going back to it again and again - and now through the eyes and minds of my kids - gives me different perspective each time.

Camus was a high school fave - I have fond memories of sitting on Cape Cod reading The Plague. Awesome book.

I like the rest, but didn't like Heart of Darkness as much re-reading it several years ago as I did when I first read it.
