One thing I love is a good end-of-the-world story. I've read and enjoyed a lot of them, and many are on this list... including my personal favorite, Lucifer's Hammer.

For only $9.95 at Amazon.com, you too can get your very own copy of this classic book. Yes, it's a book you poke your penis through.

Sure, you could spend your Friday working, or you could spend the day sitting in a butterfly chair, wearing a fez and smoking jacket, while enjoying some light tasteful literature.

In other countries, college students study time-honored, revered classics. Here, not so much.

While most are familiar with Roald Dahl through his timeless classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, his life was consumed with far more than just childrens stories.

Oh, the noble and stoic horse, ever elegant in form and disposition... except of course for young Latawyna, who'd just as soon smoke and drink and shoot heroin into her eyeballs.

Seven thousand copies of a cookbook called the Pasta Bible have had to be destroyed because one of its recipes recommended adding 'salt and freshly ground black people'.

Naturally, the publisher is claiming it's a typo. Riiiight.

You'd think the authors of classic literature would be a humble, respectful bunch regarding their peers, but no - truth of the matter is, most were just catty dickweeds that loved to talk shit about each other.

The flip-top cigarette pack is one of the most successful pieces of packaging design in history. TankBooks pay homage to this iconic form by employing it in the service of great literature. We have launched a series of books designed to mimic cigarette packs - the same size, packaged in flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane.

The storied history of the paperback book in American culture starts with a single goal: to make reading materials available to travelers for the cost of a pack of smokes.

Whodathunk that the Huffington post was good for more than stirring up angry liberals into a froth? Turns out they also have a fairly robust bead on literature as well.

While I generally don't read childrens' books any more, this one was compelling enough to capture - and maintain - my interest.

Even years after his death, my favorite author is still teaching me something new. Check out this fantastic interview with Kurt Vonnegut from the '70s where he discusses growing up, his pivotal experiences in WWII, smoking, and the true definition of the word 'twerp'.

Letters of Note does it again, this time producing Kurt Vonnegut's fascinating account to his father of being taken prisoner by the Nazis, his liberation by the Russians, and repatriation at Le Havre. Solid reading.

Kurt Vonnegut is one of my all-time favorites - not just as an author, but as a person as well. We lost a great one when he died. Here's a slew of motivational posters made from some of his finer quotes.
