23. Still reading Ready Player One
A great read so far. My husband read it first, and he really enjoyed it. It is now 2044 and world is 30+ years into the Great Recession. The main character, Parzifal, spends most of his time in the virtual reality world OASIS. The inventor of OASIS died and willed it whoever can solve the quest he hid in the OASIS. The clues are all from the inventor's love of '80's games, TV shows and movies.

It is much better than my description, I promise!
