  • Neville Goddard's works. He was brilliant. I've learned a great deal.
  • I read a LOT, but my most recent was: "Go Ask Alice" - Anonymous I picked it up the other day...Didn't really learn anything I didn't already know, but it was interesting, nonetheless. It's crazy that it was written like 30 years ago, but when you read it, it could have been written by a teenager today. (I've given you too many points, by the way...AB wont let me rate you : ( )
  • The Lost by Daniel Mendelsohn. It traces his search for the fate of his mother's uncle and family, who died in the Holocaust in Poland. Harrowing but so good that he persisted. He gave them recognition for their brief lives. Because of him, they have not just become nameless victims.
  • A book called "A Short History of Myth" which emphasizes the ritualistic aspect of myth and how in modern times (Renaissance onwards, but precursors as well) society has failed to distinguish between myth and story. Hence literal interpretations of the Bible. It made a very convincing case that myths were never seen as being true by the holders of them - they served as exemplars of Truth that were not necessarily true. Parables, in other words.
  • The Last Days According to Jesus by RC Sproul. I learned a lot about the misconceptions that Christians have in regards the last days. Interesting.
  • All of the Twilight books in four days. I wasn't impressed with the plot or her writing skill. I do enjoy the movie, though. I'm a werewolf fan and it's hard to come buy a werewolf movie that isn't low budget, which is the main reason I even watched the movie and am waiting for the next one.
  • I've been in a reading rut for a while. The last book a finished was Angels&Demons by Dan Brown.
  • The Shadow Queen which is part of the Black Jewels Series by Anne Bishop.
  • Patrick Rothfuss - The Name of the Wind. Man's got a gift, he does.
  • freshmen year of high school but i cant remember the book.
  • Unexplained Mysteries of World War II.
  • I cant remember it. It was a kids book. Had about twenty words in it. I read it twice. It was inspiring.
  • The Handmaid's Tale (re-reading, more like).
  • Beauty's Punishment. Anne Rice.
  • The Kite Runner.
  • Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond...Give it a read, it's very good stuff...
  • OMG I don't think I've actually "Finished" reading anything in years per say but I have read 3/4 of about 10 books since January. What is up with that I wonder? Book ADHD? Oh well have some points for an interesting question.
  • The Book of Negroes. Fascinating b ook about the slave trade...a novel based on real people and actual events...from the standpoint of one woman who was captured in Africa as a child...and her journey to old age. Well researched...using a real book which documented the passage of escaped and/or freed negroes from USA to Canada. Should be part of every high school curriculum. Not depressing (of course, there are horrific and very sad parts), as it is about survival and rising above despair.
  • flow my tears the police man said, by philip k dick but i've started two more since then and haven't finished either yet. The Road, by cormac mcCarthy and Rant, by chuck palahniuk
  • Bones by Jonathan Kellerman
  • 'Bomber Boys' By: Patrick Bishop A true account of the RAF Bomber Command 1939-1945
  • I just reread Garden of Rama
  • I recently re-read The Bell Jar.
  • "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" From what I gather the moral of the story is "No matter how much you overcome in life and struggle for what is right and just, you die in the end with nothing to show for it." This was a terribly depressing read. I don't think I could recommend it. Some books are very uplifting and make you feel glad to be alive. This is not one of those books. Hi Rick.
  • Most recent book finished and then even re-read:OPEN SECRET, Wei Wu Wei. Pretty exciting stuff, huh? I'm not much good at conversation in the bars.....lol.
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I learned that you can't judge an author by one book he's/she's wrote, (I didn't like Coraline, it scared me, lol). ^_^
