So, anyone up for some Kurt Vonnegut?

There are other things to do but listen to music, burnout......I am presenting here a partial collection of works
from my favorite author, Kurt Vonnegut Jr......if you are unfamiliar with him (?) I really don't know how to describe him.....hilarious, ironic, satirical, touching.....fans of Vonnegut may wish to check out the audiobooks here (there are a few) and there are also a few PDF files if you be old school and like to actually read.

My fave, of course, is "Slaughterhouse Five", in which Billy Pilgrim jumps about in time, of course living through the bombing of Dresden as Vonnegut himself did (it's a somewhat recurring theme)......but he was no "one book wonder", not by any means...."Cat's Cradle"....."Sirens of Titan"......"Breakfast of Champions"....to me, hands down the greatest author of the 20th century. He passed away a few years ago.

He is missed.

Here is what is here:

"Welcome to the Monkey House" (audio book)
"Breakfast of Champions" (audio book)
"Hocus Pocus" (audio book)
"Slaughterhouse Five" (audio book)
The PDF package-"Breakfast Of Champions","Cat's Cradle", "Mother Night", "Next Door", "Player Piano", "Slapstick (Or Lonesome No More)", "Slaughterhouse Five", "The Sirens of Titan"

OK guys, prove your intellectual side......this is GREAT
reading material, some of the best fiction EVER created. this is not what I ALWAYS do, but I do like to change things up on occasion......I will watch the traffic CAREFULLY on this one, as I have many authors that I love (Tom Robbins, Bill James, Margaret Atwood, George Orwell, Chuck Palahulnik, Dan Simmons, and LOTS more....lets see if this is a literary crowd or not. If not, no big deal, literature has always been important to me (GOD I wish I was a great writer)....if this meets with little interest, I'll file it away with "bad ideas"......but I hope a few of you are at least semi-thrilled!
