How low can you go?

I'm still busy today but in the meantime this piece about Art Garfunkel's reading habits is pretty rad. Of the 1,023 books on Garfunkel's list I have read a few and while I'm feeling pretty good about hacking away at my share of Kant and Tolstoy I have to admit that my pendulum swings a little farther the other direction than Art's does. His low brow is comprised of the likes of say Dan Brown and Pynchon while in the last four or so years I've read, Mr. T: The Man with Gold, Under the Yum Yum Tree - for unknown reasons, 3 Ian Flemming novels - you know, to see what JFK was so hot about, and a Knight Rider graphic novel. I shudder to think what Mr. Garfunkel's thoughts on these low choices would be...
