I'm in. Sold.
Your recommendation for "Among Others" made me read that in May 2011, and then I loved it so much that I lent it to my mom (I had it on Kindle and she didn't have a Kindle so I lent her my Kindle); Mom read it and loved it so much that she went out and bought a hardcover version of it and then gave it to me as a gift with this inscription:
She died in November of that year and so this book was one of the last ones we shared and really one of the last special things we did together as mother and daughter.
So, thanks for the recommendation, Cory. I'm in.
