Buying new books.
    #278634 - 09/11/09 12:34 AM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Well I am gonna buy some books to keep me busy, I like reading.

Anyone got any good books they want to recommend to me?

Books I am looking at so far are these.

@Fight Club
@American Psycho
@Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream
@A Clockwork Orange
@1984

Yeah most of them are movies, but I like seeing the movie first so when I read I can picture who looks like what and etc.
You dont have to recommend a book that has been a movie though. :super:

Jack Kerouac: Dharma Bums and also On The Road if you haven't read it
Cormac McCarthy's: The Road is a great book and the movie is gonna be released soon.
David Sedaris: When You Are Engulfed in Flames is a great collection of his humorous essays
Bulgakov's: Master and Margarita I LOVED IT!
and if you're interested in that, you should read Goethe's Faust (usually you have to buy volume 1 and 2 as separate books)
Finally read the first 3 or 4 of the Ender's series, the first is called Ender's Game, the second and third are called Speaker For the Dead and Xenocide respectively.
Speaker for the Dead is the best book I've read in a while.  The author is Orson Scott Card.

WHEW! What a list!

i just received a copy of Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock in the mail today, and currently waiting on A Dweller of Two Planets by Phylos the Tibetan.  Both books were recommended to me by some old hippie when i was hitching around, and the criteria is pretty intriguing.

Chuck Klosterman is a good writer. As is Chuck Palanhiuk, and pretty much all their work is a good read.

Mark Z. Danielewski - House of Leaves
Jon Krakauer - Into the Wild
Ken Kesey - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
CrimethInc - Evasion

Krakauer is good, I like Into the WIld, but that other one is better...um <googling>...Into Thin Air.
That one is CRAZY!  Basically Krakauer went on an ascent of Everest and was part of one of the biggest tragedies on the mountain in recent history.  It is riveting, and takes on new dimensions because 1)its true and 2)he was there.

Also, if you want an old hippie staple, check out Be Here Now by Ram Dass, kinda cool IMO.

double edit: There is a really good non-fiction book out there called "Blink" and its all about trusting your first impressions and how even though we are trained to analyze everything, usually your "snap judgement" is correct.  I thought it was gonna be a boring scientific read, but it was SO interesting.

edit: you know, I get so tired of the "what's the strongest weed?" questions, but I never tire of giving and getting book recommendations. 
Maybe when the Growery gets through it's adolescence, we could have a Literature forum.
That'll show all the people who think that people who smoke weed are stupid!

I'm surprised no one's mentioned The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
and Brave New World. and Siddhartha.

Brave New World is good...actually, Huxley in general is good, I read Siddhartha in high school, but I don't think I was particularly impressed.

I'm gonna throw this out there for anyone who hasn't read it, and yes, I know it is a kid's book, but one of my favorites to this day is Antoine de St. Exupery's "The Little Prince". It is a must read.

I've heard of that before and always wanted to check it out.  Maybe i'll just add both to my list :strokebeard:

I remember there being an article on the shroomery news about potheads = stupidity (or something of that nature). But it basically discredited most allegations of them being lazy and not smart. When on the flip-side they're mostly educated on other wordly cultures, have some understanding of how the courts/politics work and so forth... 

There's just too much stuff to look through to find a link though :frown:

The God Delusion is a decent book too.  As you guys can see I am into nonfiction.  I rarely read any fiction books.  I read The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey in college.  That was actually an interesting book toward the end.  id classify it as fiction.  err biblical prophecy.  I'd also recommend a couple of S Hawking books.  The Universe in a Nutshell and A Brief History of Time.  I have also heard that Black Holes and Baby Universes is also a great read.

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.
