…Choke looks good?

Choke

Batman might be dominating the movie news right now, and though I’m excited to see it, I think I’m looking forward to Choke even more than the man in black.

Chuck Palahniuk is by far my favorite author, and his book to movie transition has proven itself in the past (Fight Club, anyone?) so I can’t imagine Choke is going to be any different.

Lest I ruin the story, I don’t want to dive too deep into the plot line (though I will say that the book was fantastic), but just make sure you keep this one on your radar, because you don’t want to miss a movie like this.

…It’s TGI Friday: Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Bacon Chocolate Chip CookieWant to try something different this weekend?

How about adding bacon to your chocolate chip cookie recipe?

Why not, right?

According to the author/cook, the “cookies are DELICIOUS”, and they definitely look like a conversation starter, so if you’re having trouble believing someone that would put bacon in their cookie batter, then bake your own batch and see for yourself.

Sounds like a pretty sweet weekend project to me…

…It’s Things Thursday: Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff?

Chuck Palahniuk’s SnuffChuck Palahniuk is definitely my favorite author, so when I read the summary of his upcoming book, Snuff, I immediately hit the pre-order button:

    Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. SNUFF unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

Sounds like another bestseller to me.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Shelfari?

Shelfari

Shelfari is a social media site for the book lover. Users create their own “personal shelf”, fill it with their own books, and can then use that data to see what friends are reading, give and get recommendations, create book lists, share opinions, and more.

Shelfari Shelf

Once you’re there, discover new books by seeing what your friends are reading, what others with similar tastes are reading, or by receiving a recommendation, and talk it up by connecting with new and old friends to talk about books, joining groups devoted to your favorite authors, or by bringing your book club online with you.

Showing off and sharing your shelf has never seemed so satisfying.
