76. Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Got this one from the library. Some of the recipes seemed interesting and it had some good info but I wasn't inspired enough to try anything.

77. Columbine by Dave Cullen. Heavy.

78. Tell Me Lies by Jennifer Crusie. Good.

79. Say Hello, Candy by Bianca Bradbury. This book was published in 1961 and I loved it as a teen in the early 80s. Bought it on ebay so I could read it again. Still pretty enjoyable by my standards.

80. Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella. Hooray for used book stores with cheap books. I hadn't read this one before. Liked it.

81. Savage Love: Straight Answers from America's Most Popular Sex Columnist by Dan Savage. Ehhhhh. At least I didn't pay much for it? Anyone want to comment on this guy?

I adore Dan Savage, but he is what he is. Not to everyone's taste :)

Some of the bits I read seemed really dismissive of transgender people, which made me uncomfortable. To be fair, some of his advice seemed reasonable enough.

I've been following him for years. He's smart, committed and articulate, an extremely important voice in LGTB rights. He wrote one of the most affecting articles I've ever read on the death of his mother. As [livejournal.com profile] tx_cronopio says, he's not to everyone's taste, but he brings the fire to the bigots and never lets up. I admire him for that.

We just bought for the kids How to be a Person: The Stranger's Guide to College, Sex, Intoxicants, Tacos, and Life Itself.

Dan's one of the co-authors. We both think it's pretty great -- wish I'd had a guide like that when I went to college!
