Austin, what did you like to read when you were a teenager?

Oh, God. If I had to sum up the spirit of my reading habits as a teen: THESE IDIOTS AROUND ME HAVE BEEN LYING AND EVERYTHING IS BULLSHIT. It was ridiculous. I was 17 during the Bush/Gore election and couldn’t vote, so I’d just run around quoting Molly Ivins to my relatives and begging them to vote Gore. Like everyone’s teenage years, it was pretty pathetic.

Books off the top of my head:

My parents subscribed to Newsweek, so I read that a lot, and we had dial-up internet, so I remember reading The Smoking Gun a lot.
