Introducing "What Should Wes Read?"

Hello again. I'm here to introduce a new feature here: What Should Wes Read? Wherein you, the readers, of this fine blog decide what book I should read, and Susan and Jess force me to read it. I'm here at Susan's behest to provide you with some general interests of mine, both in life and literature. I'm assuming this information is needed so you can more accurately choose a book that will be hilariously awkward for me to read in public. (Susan: Yep! That's the idea.)

I like computers (clearly). On occasion, I even like programming. I enjoy running and am training for a race in January. Long walks on the beach are okay, but I'd prefer wine and a good book. Football is dumb. Other sports are awesome. Some of my favorite TV shows (that I've finished) are The Shield, Lost, Party Down, Buffy, and Arrested Development. I'm a big fan of the Oxford comma.

My favorite books (I guess that's what you're actually here for) are:
I'm currently reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, which is good for a nice breeze as it goes soaring right over my head.

Susan again! Here's how it will work: 

We need you all to leave us comments, tons and tons of comments, with titles of books you'd like to see Wes read. The more out of his comfort zone the better! Anything fiction in any genre is fair game including adult books, but let's keep it pretty family friendly (as in no erotica). He does have to review it after all. 

Once we have a lengthy list of suggestions, we'll pick  four or five each month and post a poll on the blog so our lovely readers can choose what Wes will be reading that month. Polls will go live on the first of every month and remain open for about a week. Also, don't be shy about leaving more suggestions as we go along. You can be sure I'm keeping a running list. *grins* I'm excited to see what you all want our boy here to read. 

So without further ado... COMMENT!
