May 6th, 16:30 | The Summer O' Doug

In case anyone was wondering what I was on about, I decided at some point mid-January (I think) after reading Microserfs that it had been awhile since I'd read some of the other books by Douglas Coupland. So, this summer ("summer" redefined as "May 1st to August 31st"), I would read all the novels he's written, and I'd read them in order. So that gives us...

    Generation X
    Shampoo Planet
    Life After God
    Polaroids From the Dead (on hiatus)
    Girlfriend in a Coma
    Miss Wyoming
    God Hates Japan (can't find this in North America)
    All Families Are Psychotic
    Hey Nostradamus!
    Lara's Book: Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider Phenomenon
    (sheer curiosity, this one)

Knowing me, though, one should know it's not possible for me to only be reading one book at a time. Ever. So, I shall also be tracking (new) books that I get through on top of the Coupland ones.

In progress:

    The Groundwater Diaries by Tim Bradford
    Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson
    Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution by Steven Levy
    Scaramouche by Raphael Sabatini
    Life of Pi by Yann Martel


    Hominids by Robert J. Sawyer
    Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding
    Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann (shut up)
    Dying For Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson
    The Last Suppers by Diane Mott Davidson
    Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss
    The Discovery of Chocolate by James Runcie
    Sticks and Scones by Diane Mott Davidson
    Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
    Don Quixote by some children's author
    Chopping Spree by Diane Mott Davidson
