"The Road", Cormac McCarthy
-Read Backpacker magazine or Extreme Camper because that's pretty much what this whole book is about
-I liked the fact that no one really has a name. I always really wanted to make mine up anyway- I'll have that to look forward to
-Somehow the main character and his son don't make feeling aimless look so bad -Apparently we will all contract tuberculosis on 12-13-12
-All my work for the Heffer Project will go to shame since McCarthy writes about cows becoming extinct
-If you were negligent about paying homeless people any mind McCarthy gives you every reason to do that even more after the apocalypse
-If you have a boat abandon it somewhere around 12-10-12. Most of the characters in this book stayed alive because of someone anchoring theirs near an off-shore dock.
-According to this book you should bury lots of First Aid kits under the ground.
-Over the counter medicines do not have a long shelf like so seal yours in tight-proof containers
-Take LOTS of baths before 12-12-12. I rubbed my tub down with ammonia and washed my hair with soap and shampoo after finishing every single chapter.
