I also want to read Ready Player One, I actually forgot about it.

Marce: It's really good. I grew up in the 80s, but really don't consider myself an 80s girl (I much prefer music, books, film, etc from the 70s on back). And I loved this book and all the 80s references.

I loved Ready Player One too! I'll have to check out the others from your list.
