i'm just finishing 'haunted' by chuck palahnuik.
afterwards i'll probably read 'snuff' by chuck palahnuik.
then after that i'll probably read 'survivor'.
then i will have read the majority of his books.
so i will order the ones that i don't have!
i love him!

gypsyroselee 07-11-2008 03:37 PM

oh&actually, i bought a book the other day that amazon recommended me. but i can't remember what it was.
but on the front it had a chuck palahnuik quote saying like "this is the best book ever" or something.


...im not obsessed.
