I'll nominate Cat's Cradle by Vonnegut.

Re: Hey AMF, Whatcha Reading?

I just finished reading Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle . Not for those who enjoy tight plot structure or fast-paced action, but I'd definitely recommend it-- it'll likely make my top 30-40 of all time in the next books poll. I've been reading way less than I'd like. Looking forward to others'...

The new Dylan album is not doing much for me after a bit of listening. Definitely not bad, but it kind of drags on at 70 minutes... Also, the title and album art seem pretty disparate from the music itself.
