The past few weekends for me have been filled with family engagements and sleeping at airports, and I'm anxious to relax and give myself a weekend of down time. After asking around, I've decided to dig into Gary Shteyngart's Little Failure: A Memoir. I was a big fan of Super Sad True Love Story and though I've heard mixed reviews about Little Failure, and understand that it's completely different than his previous works, I'm looking forward to it.

And should I get through the book before Sunday ends, I am finally going to do it: I'm going to begin watching Netflix's "House of Cards." Yes, I know. It's extremely popular, everyone loves it and I'm the last person with a Netflix account to watch it. Am I too late to the party to be able to enjoy it?

But before deciding on my down time, I asked which books I should cancel all social engagements to shack-up with over the weekend, and (since I am a TV cord-cutter) which Netflix series I should binge watch. Here are a few suggestions from Salon readers.

Leave yours below in the comments and tell me what I'm missing.
