This literary website has compiled list of recommended reading to help the liberal-minded make it through the next 4 years.

The selections are funny, biting, and frighteningly appropriate.

Personally, the bit about telling people who work in bookstores to move The Handmaid's Tale to the nonfiction section made me want to laugh (but also made me want to cry).

Me, it's also helping me prepare my holiday reading list, and probably helping me think of some presents I should buy for others as well. I haven't read enough DeLillo, and there's two of his books on the list. I better get cracking.

I was at a Borders right after the Bill Clinton book came out. It was appropriately placed under "New Fiction."

You know - I don't know how much it will help upset Liberals, but I would have to add The Monkey Wrench Gang. I am the farthest thing from a violent environmentalist, but even I enjoyed this book. Good reading.

Anything by Edward Abbey is must reading. Pool-Boy, have you read the "Fools Progress"? Sort of autobiograpical fiction of his life and a must read.

And Abbey wasn't a rabid environmentalist, he just loved the West and was the ultimate curmudgeon. He tells a hilarious story of how he set an entire canyon on fire by accident in one of his books.
