Over the weekend, John Cusack appeared at the LA Times Festival of Books to talk about Edgar Allen Poe, and his new movie The Raven.
We were there among a packed crowd by the open-air stage to hear his thoughts about Poe and moviemaking - and also, unexpectedly, a list of the books that he's currently reading.
The contents of the list are as surprising as they are eclectic - including the unexpected way that a movie inspired him to pick up a classic text. He also talks about the iPad and defacing books, alongside Mark Leyner, the author of the new book "The Sugar-Frosted Nutsack".
Watch the video above and let us know in the comments what you think of his choices.
