Big Brother, Lionel Shriver
Straight White Male, John Niven

Any thing I should add? Any recommendations? Anything I shouldn't waste my time with???

Not everything I wish list is because I want to read it though. I wish list things I think friends might like, so I can remember to recommend them, or things that I don't want immediately but might have a think about for another time.
My wish list is actually for another bookcase
Thanks Sarah and duchess have added accordingly.
On Go Ask Alice, I had it pressed into my hands as a teenager by my parents trying to keep me away from drugs (nobody has ever offered me drugs). It seems that it was a work of fiction and not a real-life diary after all. Might still be interesting as a period piece, though.
The only book on your list that I've read is Big Brother. I felt a bit cheated at the end, but overall I quite enjoyed it, though I wouldn't say it's the Best.Book.Ever.
I don't have much of a wish-list at the moment. The local library is really good, so I can get most books I want from there. I'm on the waiting list for a few books at the moment, including The Hive by Gill Hornby.
Thanks nickname. I thought as much when I look back at it as adult. Still don't think I've recovered from finding out A million little pieces wasn't the memoir it was sold as!
I have 10 or so wish lists all categorised and they are immense.
