I'm actually not a big reader, I've only read a few books..

I've read The Autobiography Of Malcolm X, Catcher In The Rye, and Kaffir Boy, currently I'm reading The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn...

I'm waiting on something that comes out next week, so I can order it off of Amazon, along with it I'm also thinking of ordering a book or two. I've been thinking of The Diary Of Anne Frank... do you have any other suggestions???

here is one, hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, all of them, if you didn't like the movie, good, it was a bad movie, the books are so much better, and explain so much more.

A pretty good one is The Road by Cormac McCarthy, it's a kind of apocolyptic story and pretty freaky in its own way.

Also reccommended...Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, The Far Euphrates by Aryeh Lev Stollman, Anthem by Ayn Rand, and Dante's Inferno.....

if you like graphic novels try V for Vendetta, or Maus (that one won the Pulitzer Prize.)

A few worldview enhancing favorites of mine are as follows:

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

The Illuminatus Trilogy: The Eye in the Pyramid, The Golden Apple, Leviathan by Robert Anton Wilson

The Dragon and the Unicorn by A. A. Attanasio (the whole Arthor Series is really good)

The Diamond Age: Or, a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson

The book in my siggy, I highly recommend


Two other books I recommend reading are:
The Hot Zone, and Color Complex.

Oh, and also this one about a Somali Model Waris Dirie:
Desert Flower: The Extraordinary Journey Of A Desert Nomad

This old one:
The Wreck of The Titan by Morgan Robertson is pretty interesting as it was written before the time of the Titanic.

Amistad was pretty good too. Although when I was reading it, I was told the movie had came out first. Was still good.

books i would recomend:

harry potter – whole series is really worth giving it a try
ravens of avalon

pristes of avalon

there are many more of the avalon cycle
these books gave me long afternoon of pleasure
another suggestion by the same author
darkover cycle

issac assimov's foundation series

or if you like mysteries - the mystery series by elizabeth peters about amelia peapody located in egypt of the beginning of last century
the mummy case, curse of the pharao, crocodile on the sandbank
but she wrote many more!
