I have the Enders Game series if you want it (I have yet to read it). I also have some William Gibson which I enjoy though its not for everyone. The Sprawl Trilogy would be a good place to start.

PM me your email addy - I need that to send out the invite to the folder.

I have the dredd comics but the only thing is if we start doing comics then the dropbox will max out really quickly.

Added One of My all time Favorites

Chuck Palahniuk's outrageous and startling debut novel that exploded American literature and spawned a movement. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with white-collar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world

superCalo -  put in on there, somehow I have put it in its own folder in the uG kindle library called Palahunick Chuck, not sure how I did this but its in there anyway. 

Have not read it yet myself, liked Fight Club, found Choke to be almost unreadable, but thats a personal thing
will get round to this one day as have heard good things, so not my review, just a cut and paste

Front Cover 

Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the Creedish death cult, has commandeered a Boeing 747, emptied of passengers, in order to tell his story to the plane's black box before it crashes. Brought up by the repressive cult and, like all Creedish younger sons, hired out as a domestic servant, Tender finds himself suddenly famous when his fellow cult members all commit suicide. As media messiah he ascends to the very top of the freak-show heap before finally and apocalyptically spiralling out of control. 
Awesome thank you I agree about choke it had its moments but overall I was disappointed. Phone Post

Best part of Choke is the "safe word" chapter.

As for Survivor, I was entertained, it would make an interesting movie. Before he met ... it could have worked as a thriller with all of the other sect members being killed off.

Palahniuk is a bit of a one trick pony, his books are good in small doses, but you can't read them one after the other as you would go insane.

Non-Fiction was good though, the wrestling chapter was really interesting.

Oh and stay away from Pygmy, horrendous book.

As a person who loved Choke I can understand your problems with it Calo. Palahniuk can be better in small doses. I read most of his books years ago and the only one I tend to pick up again and again is Haunted with his short stories. When I was younger it was his perversity and writing style that grabbed me but now I find his books lacking in the story telling department and it's hard to get past that in order to read a passage that knocks me on my ass.
