the time to read them...

Books I have read. More for me than for you, but I guess that depends on who you are. If you stalk me, than this will probably be more useful for you than me.

The Great Psychedelic Armadillo Picnic : A "Walk" in Austin by Kinky Friedman

I read this and some other austin travel guides as I am going there Thursday for SXSW. While this book was amusing, I don't know how helpful it was to tourists! It seems a lot like Chuck Palahniuk's Fugitives and Refugees : A Walk in Portland, Oregon which I enjoyed because I actually lived in the town. The books are part of the same "Crown Journeys" series, which I now want to read more of. I have the D.C. one in my ipod because it's by Christopher Buckley, but I intend on reading the Chicago one too.

It was a fun read and did talk about the geography and restaurants to visit. And who doesn't love Kinky Friedman?
