My Summer Reading List

As I mentioned yesterday, I've been on a reading tear. Here's the books I finished the last ten days:

The books:
The Nuclear Age by Tim O'Brien. O'Brien is my favorite author who writes about Vietnam.
To A God Unknown by John Steinbeck. Steinbeck is my favorite author.
After Dark and Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami. Murakami is perhaps the most well known modern Japanese writer. These were my 2nd and 3rd books I've read of his.
King, Queen, Knave by Nabokov. I've always wanted to read Nabokov and this one had the catchiest title.
Burr by Gore Vidal. My buddy Seth lent me this book and it was pretty great.

That said, I've now got no books left on my reading list. Does anyone have any suggestions? LH, if you're still reading I'm hoping for some picks from you. You had suggested some a while ago but I can't seem to find the blogs were you made those comments. I'd love to read more books on Vietnam and Japan.
