Leafing Through Fall

It is really fortuitous that I received all my new books the day after I finished my last one. Now I can get an early start on my reading for this Fall. Although I'm a bit torn between which book I should read first, as all of them seems to be pretty interesting. Anyways, here are the books that I bought:

Everything Matters!
This book tells the story of a guy who knows exactly when the world will end from the moment he was born. This seems pretty tragic, and that sounds interestingly funny.

A non-fiction book, this is a first hand account from a New Orleans painting contractor who witnessed the catastrophic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. I don't know much about what happened there besides what the news gave us. So I'm pretty interested to know the bits and pieces, as well as the personal impact, that got muddied or lost in the mainstream media.

1984/Animal Farm
I've already read 1984, and it's one of my favorite books. But I was looking for a hardcover edition to replace my paperback that I gave away last year. That's how I found this double feature by George Orwell. While I don't have any plans to read 1984 again, I haven't read Animal Farm yet (which most Orwell fans said it is as good as 1984). So I really need to read this one.

There, that's what my Fall reading program looks like. So which book do you think I should read first?
