With the new Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary coming out in theaters this week, it’s only fitting that we recommend the Best-selling Hunter S. Thompson novel that came out in 1998, even though it was written in the 1960s. It is the story of an American journalist who goes to Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper there. If you plan on seeing the film I would highly recommend reading the book first.
Also, new this week is Mindy Kaling’s (from TVs The Office) book titled “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns.)” This is a hilarious book detailing her life as an Indian-American high school student to television writer and actor of The Office. It’s an easy, comical read written in a similar style to Tina Fey’s Best-Seller “Bossy Pants,” (Another great read!)
