a book a week #6 and #7 and maybe #8??

I 've been falling behind on updates with a book a week.

Here is a list of what I have read in the past couple of weeks.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test- Tom Wolfe
Homage To California - George Orwell
Keep The Aspidistra Flying - George Orwell
An Unquite Mind: A Memoir of Moods & Madness - Kay Jamison
Somebody: The Reckless Life & Remarkable Career of Marlon Brandon -Stefan Kanfer
The Martian Chronicles - Ray Bradbury

And throw in a few eastern religion books, but those weren't as exciting as the above.

The ones I recommend to read are An Unquite Mind, it shows how a woman in the medical field deals with her bipolar disorder and I also recommend The Electric Kool Acid Test and Homage To California. Those were really good reads.

The next two books I am bringing to read on my trip to New York City are:

Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones by Robert Greenfield.

And, Tell Me How Long The Train Has Been Gone by James Baldwin

What is everyone else reading? I am sure I will be doing some major book shopping whilst in New York City, so any recommendations would be great.

An Unquite Mind sounds like something I would definetely read, I'm going to put it on my list.
I'm going to add you on Good Reads if that's cool.
