BETHANY Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson "I've been meaning to pick up this sci-fi classic for years, so I'm glad that Neal Stephenson's upcoming event inspired me to finally read it now.

With the sheer volume of heroin he's shoveled up his nose, hydrocodone he's gobbled, and scotch he's waterfalled down his throat, the ratio of his overall cellular composition must heavily favor poison over human DNA at this point. Any one of his overdoses, crashed cars, or nervous breakdowns should have … Continue reading At Long Last! The Stand Up Sit Down Book Club Crashes And Burns!!!!!!!
