96. Motley Crue: The Dirt...; 97. Tapping the Source

Motley Crue: The Dirt, Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band
by Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil, and Nikki Sixx with Neil Strauss

Started: February 6, 2010
Finished: February 8, 2010

I may not give much of a crap about Motley Crue's music, but this might be the best rock and roll autobiography ever written. Great structure, great stories, and some real honesty shown even if their stories sometimes conflict with each other. 428 pages. Grade: A

Tapping the Source
by Kem Nunn

Started: February 6, 2010
Finished: February 9, 2010

I absolutely loved this novel about a young man who goes looking for his lost sister amid the surf culture of 1980s Huntington Beach. Nunn just does a fantastic job of setting up the atmosphere of the beach and creates some interesting characters along the way. Great book. 300 pages. Grade: A+
