>>Very clever, Hal

I can't take credit for making them up . . . but I thought they were cleverly done.

I thought Brandon Steers, MY LIFE AS A COWBOY was especially punny ; -)

Hal had me going. I'm ashamed I got so far through the list (JUST how far I'll never tell) before pun-ishing reality dawned on me.

Regarding real books, I have to second Wendy's nomination of "To Kill A Mockingbird" - and I plan to read several others on her list.

Additional Fiction:
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
and a trilogy:
Run with the Horseman - Ferrol Sams
Whisper of the River - Ferrol Sams
When All the World was Young - Ferrol Sams
and
Narcissus and Goldmund - Hermann Hesse

Non-fiction:
Founding Brothers - Joseph Ellis
The Path to Power (LBJ's Early Years) - Robert Caro

Short Stories
Everything written by James Thurber
Almost everything written by Dorothy Parker
Mamma Makes Up Her Mind (and Other Dangers of Southern Living) - Bailey White
Holidays on Ice - David Sedaris

I wish I could list some poets, but other than Brian and Wendy's haiku, I hate poetry. Hmmmm.... no, scratch that. I hate ALL poetry.

`Not trying to police any threads or anything like that . . . but just as this was posted in a forum called "Humor," there's also a forum called "Arts, Poetry & Literature." There are some good reading/book lists there. Those dealing with Montana books are especially good.
