    He basically channels Ayn Rand while incidentally writing fantasy, there's even a liberal sprinkling of characters who have an unhealthy obsession with rape/torture sex (again, mirroring Rand).

    Got only science books to read, but the bibs are around so I don't need to buy books.

    I hate you Steal ><

    hum, I abused my public library when I was younger on equal par with how I bought books, so although I'm fairly well off in reading material, I don't really have a shitload of books (especially after looking at Mart's collection... then again, I can never get rid of anything either). Besides that, a bunch of those series I read when I was younger are for the most part sold or in a box god knows where, along with children's books (btw... I used to read Animorphs too, but I think I gave up on them around book 30 or 40 as they pretty much were not going aaaaannnnnywhere).

    *stares at bookshelf... is ashamed there's about 4 or 5 that were never competed or picked up*

    Lol, I still have my old Robotech books on there. Hahaha. XD
    Ok, those worth mentioning:
    Clancy's earlier Ryan books (Red October is the shit) and a few random novels by him
    Looks like a couple of Coontz (thought I had more of him... ah well)
    Some more random military novels (why have I not read Black Hawk Down... it's sitting right there?)
    couple of Crichton books (Lost World and some train one. I wish I had Terminal Man. That one was delightfully fucked up)
    couple of Cussler books (honestly I think he's over rated... bores the hell out of me to read his stuff)
    Some Lundum
    Dracula
    A book with some Shakespear (also I think is over-rated, classics be damned)
    George Carlin's "Napalm and Silly Putty" and "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops"
    Dune, Dune Messiah, and Children of Dune (after those I thought it went kinda downhill)
    Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by P. K. Dick (that's the archetype for Blade Runner)
    Fahrenheit 451 (burn books to ash, then burn the ash )
    Big fuck'n book of Poe
    All of Hitchhikers Guide series (if you like dry ass humor, read that and never see the abomination and royal rape job that is the disney movie)
    New York Friars Book of Roasts
    The Chaos Gate Trilogy (mental/political warfare between gods, demons, and mortals in a fantasy setting, fun read)
    Jumper (much much much better than the shitty movie... need to find the sequel to it now)
    Submarines of the World, Reader's Digest Guide to WWII, History of Weaponry, and a few others of the same like.
    All of Calvin and Hobbs (except one 'collection' book that I'm missing that combines two of the books I have... so I'm missing *a* poem pretty much)
    Garfield start up until... I'm going to guess mid 90's (1996... there's my guess) or so
    aaaand a bunch of other various Sci-fi books, random novels, and some old cheat code books for SNES

    Also there's two boxes of tech books and manuals I have that are always ready to travel with me. That includes but is not limited to a Red Hat/Fedora Core bible, Linux Networking, Windows 98 secrets, Mac OS 8 or 9 (one of the two...), MS Office Training manual, CAD drawing and design, VB.Net, C, COBOL, 2 Java books, A+ Repair Guide, Photoshop Classroom in a Book CS2, Dreamweaver 8, and BASH shell scripting.

    Ugg ><

    So I dumped $90 in my school bookstore so I have something to read on the train home... I basically randomly picked books. Anyone recognize these

    Oil! by Upton Sinclair (basis for There Will Be Blood)
    Vita Sexularis by Ogai Mori
    A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami
    Little Children by Tom Perrotta (I love the movie)
    Choke by Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club)

    Whaddaya think?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    ^Try Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland. I've a feeling you'll love it.

    It reminded me of Memoirs of a Geisha. I don't know why, though.

    Artemis Fowle
    Harry Potter
    Robinson Crusoe
    Alice In Wonderland (for adults too)
    The Odyssey
    The Iliad (troy)
    Gulliver's Travels
    King Solomon's Mines
    Arabian Nights
    Chronicles of Narnia
    His Dark Materials Trilogy (Golden Compass)
    Aesop's Fables

    For adults:
    Umberto Eco - Name of the Rose
    Robert Ludlum (Bourne Identity etc)
    John Kellerman
    Dean Koontz
    Stephen King
    Nora Roberts (aka JD Robb)
    HP Lovecraft
    Edgar Allan Poe
    Robert W Chambers
