Laurie Notaro's Summer Reading List for Book Snobs AND Book Assholes:
5. Put down 50 Shades of Bullshit. Seriously. There is nothing as cool as rediscovering an old book and there's nothing as stupid as reading the same one five other people at Lux are.
Depart the herd. The other 49 just ran into a ravine, anyway, where The Hunger Games Herd is now decomposing. Maud Martha by Gwendolyn Brooks (If you read The Help, you are obligated to read this. First African-American woman to win the Pulitzer.)
4. Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis (Hilarious. I shit thee not.)
