Allcott, 'The Speed Queen' by Stuart O'Nan,
your guilty pleasure reading: The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evananovich. Totally addicted. Also, The Flowers in the Attic series by Virginia Andrews. Gotta love that incest theme. Oh, and of course, the Harry Potter books. Of course, I don't feel guilty about any of these, that's probably the most shameful thing of all!
most overrated book(s), in your opinion: Hmm, probably The Perks Of Being A Wallflower (nice, but nothing special) and of course, The Da Vinci Code. I found it distinctly unsatisfying.

OH MY GOSH, I love Douglas Coupland with such a passion...you're the first person I've heard of who has read him too (that wasn't turned on to him by me, anyway)!! Girlfriend In A Coma is one of my favorite books ever.
