I second that (and thank the gods for printer-friendly format links!). We could always play a sadistical game of "who's read the most on these two lists" but that would be cruel and inhuman...

Nah, I always hate games where I have little chance of winning...

Heh you really didn't know, did you? NYT usually contacts me and asks me what books I am reading, the same books that are in the next Sunday book review of course

There is one book on the list that I recently read and I can hardly recommend it to anyone who likes dystopia novels. Book is called Jennifer Government by Max Barry. From Amazon:
Quote:
In the horrifying, satirical near future of Max Barry's Jennifer Government, American corporations literally rule the world. Everyone takes his employer's name as his last name; once-autonomous nations as far-flung as Australia belong to the USA; and the National Rifle Association is not just a worldwide corporation, it's a hot, publicly traded stock. Hack Nike, a hapless employee seeking advancement, signs a multipage contract and then reads it. He discovers he's agreed to assassinate kids purchasing Nike's new line of athletic shoes, a stealth marketing maneuver designed to increase sales. And the dreaded government agent Jennifer Government is after him.
Great book, both funny and scary!

Didn't you mean to say "heartily recommend" and not "hardly recommend" (which of course means the opposite)? This book was pushed a while back on the WOYP groups list, but I found its humor/satire heavy-handed. radleyp
