If you read The Dirt and Slash than I am guessing you are a product of the 80's. I would recommend Ready Player One, a fiction story that takes place in the future but has a lot of 80's references. I think you will enjoy, easy read and fun.

+1 on this. I'm not a huge "reader," but this book kept me engaged and the humorist twist Extremo mentioned definitely makes it funny and keeps it interesting.

Books are boring. The only reason they exist is so parents can make themselves look good by making their kids read book in public when they really would rather be playing their Nintendo DS.

The Twilight series are some good books for those nights you wanna explore your feminine/vampire side. I think a vampire makes the best bad boy for a woman to fall in love in. Because every girl wants to date a bad boy just like how every man wants to drive an exotic.

I guess vampires are similar to Lamborghinis.
