What book should I read next?

I have this cool tablet that can hold dozens of books; I call it my book shelf. Hard to carry around though. Anyways, I just finished three books and I’m trying to figure out what to read next.

This morning I completed “The Once and Future King” by T.H. White, which I started before “Van Gogh: The Life,” and put down while I read the Vincent bio. Then I went to Powell’s in Portland and picked up Jonathan Lethem’s collection of short stories, “Men and Cartoons,” which I read quickly as soon as I got home. Then I went back to the King Arthur legend. Each of us are just a drop in a mighty river.

So it deciding what to read next, I need something a little less epic, where someone you grow to admire/pity/love dies at the end.

I have been planning on going with “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman, bought that with Carli at the Tattered Cover a while back. But then, this week, I went to an author reading at Colorado College with Andrew Pyper, where I picked up the monster chiller suspense horror novel, “The Guardians,” and I’m really thinking about putting that one on the night stand next.

But that doesn’t seem fair to all of the other books who have been waiting patiently to be read. So here is the list, in no particular order, help me choose.

So what book should I read next? I mean, I already own these books. I should probably read them.

    Read the Guardians and tell me how it is! And, unless you are being graded, why read The Grapes of Wrath? Just watch Ken Burns’ The Dust Bowl instead.

    I’m an English major and there are a lot of classics that I’ve never read; for whatever reason, I feel bad about that … I did start The Guardians. It’s a quick read compared to The Once and Future King; there’s like five words on a line with lots of line spacing. I got through 130 pages in three sessions. There’s been a couple ominous foreshadowing-y parts, but I haven’t been scared shitless as yet. Right now, the house’s scary inhabitants may still be imaginary. I imagine when he veers into demonic realism, I will poop my pants thusly.
