The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007
Finally, a book that's perfect for someone with A.D.D. Or if your interests fly all over the place, you'll enjoy this too. Don't like following books chapter by chapter? No problem! With The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007, you can just open to any random page and indulge yourself without worrying about missing key details. Because there are none! If you didn't notice, the title is The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007, which means there's no specific theme. You might find yourself reading a letter from Conan O'Brien to a graduating class. Or, just open to the intro written by Sufjan Stevens to find out why it took him so long to learn how to read. This best part of this is not knowing what you'll find next. I guess the consistent thing in this book is that most writings are thought provoking or down right hilarious as each was carefully selected by a team of microbiologists. I'm kidding about the microbiologists part. But they were selected by Dave Eggers, who apparently knows how to find good writings.
