me: i need some books for the plane tomorrow. know any good ones?
brother: uhhh. i don’t know, i’ve read like 12 books in my life. Motherless Brooklyn is good.
me: is that the only one you’ve read? you recommended that to me like 4 years ago. what else?
him: haha uhh lemme think. Altered Carbon. it’s like a post-apocalyptic noir. more of a guy’s book though. and uh… Slappy’s Revenge, Goosebumps.
