Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck
She means well, but holy hell, she's a freaking cunt! This is more of a book about how to be obnoxious than one that isn't.

Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir
Eddie Huang IS an Asian American role model in a world where there are none. And by none I mean theres no one else who can represent this group of people as anything more than a stereotype. Inspiring!

I read this one in college when I would go to the cafeteria by myself in between studying. These stories are amazingly imaginative and still hold up today.

DFW does amazing things to the English language. It's a hard read, but totally worth it.

Cory's favorite types of books...
Books are awesome
Slackers should totally read a lot of books. It sounds kind of counterintuitive, but actually it's quite useful. For instance, you can pretend to read a book on the beach and then accidentally on purpose fall asleep on the beach. A book can also be used to avoid talking to someone who would take a lot of effort to talk to. This is because the fact that you have a book open and grimacing at it makes it seem like you are working hard when in reality, you are thinking about ice cream. Sometimes if you are sitting in the right place, people will take a picture of you doing this, thinking you are famous and super smart.
