Vote for the first book by commenting (you can vote for your favorite whether you plan on participating or not). I chose these three because I've been meaning to read all of them and better start with something manageable or else I'll give up on the whole thing.

I Sailed With Magellan by Stuart Dybek
Desperate Characters by Paula Fox
Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson

Tentative start deadline: Wednesday, November 1st
Finish by: midnight on Tuesday the 7th

i will go against the grain and say DESPERATE CHARACTERS because i've been meaning to read that book for awhile now, ever since k. (genius k.) had it lying around his living room and i picked it up and read the first ten pages. even if you don't end up picking it, i will read it anyway, so i guess it doesn't matter hi leigh you are great heart heart heart.

All worth reading. You could get through Jesus' Son in a few hours in a Borders cafe - if you start with that one, you might get two of these read by your deadline.
