As you know, I'm rocking the Cannonball II: Pants Boogaloo starting November 1st and I've decided that I will only read books I've never read before. So far, this is how the list of literary face-sexed awesomeness plays out. Don't hate because I have wicked mad taste in reading materials and tend to stick to the the ass-blasting bodaciousness of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Tremble, bitches!

In no particular order:

1. American Gods - Neil Gaiman (I've never read him with the exception of Good Omens)
2. Prelude to Foundation - Issac Asimov (better known as God)
3. Pride And Prejudice And Zombies - Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-smith
4. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams (Never read it, am ashamed.)
5. The Restaraunt at the End of The Universe - Douglas Adams
6. Life, the Universe  and Everything - Douglas Adams
7. So Long, and Thanks For all the Fish - Douglas Adams
8. The Law Of Nines -  Terry Goodkind (Truthiness)
9. Boneshaker - Cherie Priest (Steampunk, motherfuckers!)
10.  Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman
11.  Day By Day Armageddon - J.L. Bourne (zombie goodness)
12.  Anansi Boys - Neil Gaiman
13.  John Dies @ The End - David Wong (more undeadiness)
14.  The Ghost King - R.A. Salvetore
15. Foundation's Edge - Issac Asimov
16. Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas - Hunter S. Thompson
17.  The Gargoyle - Andrew Davidson
18. To Your Scattered Bodies Go - Philip Jose Farmer*
19. The Fabulous Riverboat - Philip Jose Farmer*
20. The Dark Design - Philip Jose Farmer*
21. The Magic Labyrinth - Philip Jose Farmer*
22. Gods of Riverworld - Philip Jose Farmer*

*I constantly do this. I'll find a new author I like and devour everything they've written until I'm spent. I did it with Peter F. Hamilton and when I was finished I had to take a month long break.

20. The next George R.R. Martin book in The Song of Ice and Fire.
21. Peter Hamilton's next book.
22. Peter Hamilton's next next book (dude is amazing and pumps out quality like a machine)
23. Rides A Dread Legion - Raymond E. Feist
24. Shutter Island - Dennis Lehane

That's where we're sitting right now. I'm not going to plan the rest of the reading as I'll invariably read one of these authors and end up reading the rest of their books and it's dependant on what the library has available. Also, I'll be picking up suggestions from the blogs and Pajiba's posted reviews. But the real reason I'm not finishing my list is because it'll cause spontaneous orgasm and I'm not going to be responsible for cleaning up that mess.

StabbyMart: Jizzing on your face with booky goodness since 2009.


  1. Brilliant list and it's giving me ideas (which have nothing to do with jizz, sir.)

  2. *ears prick up*

    did someone say "jizz"?

  3. also, did you see AvB's cleavage?

    happy belated birthday!

  4. Great list! I'm like you, once I find an author I like, I just devour his/her work (se: Moore, Christopher and Davies, Robertson). That said, I recently read Anansi Boys and decided Gaiman is a smidge too fanciful for my liking. Not to say I won't try any more of his books, it had its moments, but I thought I'd be swept away by him.

    gp--I know, right?! *fans self*

  5. Geep, I've been on facebook for a while. Ergo, I've been nuzzling that gorgeous valley for months.

  6. Ah, I love the Hitchhiker's series! I'm also going to be adding some Gaiman to my list, and I'm going to look for the suggestions you gave me - George R. R. Martin & Peter F. Hamilton.

    And if you or anyone else needs any more science fiction suggestions, may I recommend Octavia Butler? She's my favorite author in that genre, and I have devoured everything she ever wrote.

  7. Mind if I steal some (I will anyway, just sayin')?

    That's a fantastic list. It's comforting to know I'm not the only person who is getting all tingly about CBR2.

  8. I'm new. I'm hopelessly lost about what BCR2 is and wondering if you plan to read all those books in November? Because I'm a rather voracious and fast reader but I think I might have to give up sleep (and all other bodily functions) to accomplish such a feat. So?

    As for your list...I personally like Neil Gaiman so good choice! Despite persistant urging by many friends, I have not read The Hitchikers Guide either, and I thought I was the only one (well and my kids...) who was going to read Pride, Predjudice and Zombies. I've started it and it's hysterical!!

    Have fun with your reading!

  9. Yeah, I'm stealing about half your list. But no worries, I won't write them up for Cannonball 2: In My Pants. It's just for my general reading...

  10. Welcome Spot! To clarify: the CannonBall Read started as a contedt between Brian Prisco, a writer at and our dearly departed AlabamaPink to see who could read one hundred books in one year. Upon getting word of the contest, a bunch of Pajibans also wanted to join in the fun and it became a battle royal. The first version wrapped a month or so ago and we've now started CannonBall Read II: Insert Clever Name Here. (CBR2)

    This time, the object is to read fifty-two books in a year starting on November 1st (far more managable) and there are 101 official participants. Pajiba will donate a monetary gift to Alabama's son's college fund for all those who complete the quest. Feel free to join in at home.

    One more week, bitches.

  11. Heh. Douglas Adams. Hunter Thompson. Me amused. You're probably going to pee yourself.

    I'd also recommend looking up the Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman. An oldy, but a goody.

  12. Huzzah for booky goodness! I vote you move Hitchhiker's Guide to the top of the list to make up for lost time! Also don't forget book 5 (in the increasingly inaccurately named trilogy), Mostly Harmless.

    meaux, Anansi Boys is one of Gaiman's most fanciful, I'd try American Gods or Neverwhere before you write him off completely.

  13. You may or may not be my book soulmate. I have either read all of these or they are on my to-be-read list as well. I look forward to competing with you sir!
