Oddly enough, the local Library did not have Flowers for Algernon, but a nearby library did, only in its "young adult" section which I usually skip entirely. I've never heard of this book being a YA selection, except maybe in that it's frequent highschool required reading. Strange.
In any case, I picked up Gaiman's Stardust instead, but I can honestly say I didn't like it. I like the movie better. Gaiman is great, but to me he's a little hit or miss. Sometimes it's awesome (like American Gods!) and sometimes not so much (like Stardust).
Now, picked up Summer Knight by Butcher to give a quick brainless read and then on to Words of Radiance to continue the series.
Cutting back dramatically on the television you watch has a net positive impact on your ability to actually read things. Though the 8:30 bedtime (due to 4am wakeup time) kind of kills that a bit.
