Cusack Challenge

I created this challenge to see if anyone would like to read this list of books with me. The original announcement post which explains more is –> HERE <–. According to an interview of John Cusack for, these books were most influential to him and I had only read:

To Kill a Mockingbird
By Harper Lee

The other books are:

Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72 – March 2010 (my preview)
By Hunter S. Thompson

Chronicles: Volume One
By Bob Dylan

The Great Thoughts
Compiled by George Seldes

The Shock Doctrine
By Naomi Klein

Franny and Zooey – June 2010   (my review)
By J.D. Salinger

Tropic of Cancer √ – May 2013
By Henry Miller

Rites of Spring
By Modris Eksteins


Titles in RED mean that I have since read these books. If the title is GREEN, it means that I have the book in-house.

There is no deadline!  This is a perpetual challenge. If you want to join along with me, feel free. If you have any thoughts to share about ANY of these books, please leave me a comment. If you have reviews, please list in the comments, as well. Thank you.

  1. Oh my God, Care, I never saw this. Are you a fellow Cusack Groupie? I’m beyond excited that he enjoyed “Franny and Zooey”–one of my favorite books of all time. I’m IN on this challenge even if I’m not sure when I’m going to do it.
