I really love to read books I want want to see what the favs are out there. I'll start besides "The Bible", I'll have to say
"The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein and a close second "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown.
Hi, It changes from time to time, just now it is Leon Uris' Armageddon. I found it absolutely amazing and very touching ..
Giving Tree is a great one - love Shel!!
I love Ishmael by Daniel Quinn - read it as a teen and it made quite an impression.
The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Leguin
Patient Heal Thyself by Jordan Rubin
Okay, I'll stop - there are too many to name a favorite. Maybe a top five or ten in each category lol..we could all do hubs about it..
The one book that changed me was "Discovering your erroneous zones" by Dr Wayne Dyer
My husband fav author are David Eddings and Elizabeth Moon but his most recent fave book is "The Shack" by William P. Young.
Just thought of another fave "A Separate Peace" by John Knowles
The Giving Tree was good.
I dunno, call me a one track mind, but I'm way into Neuromancer by William Gibson and Snow Crash by Neil Stepheson. Mostly because what these two books represent have only become more relevant, and they've aged like fine wine.
A View From the Center of the Universe
It covers a full range to try to give an understanding of the universe to layman's turns and I think it is done quite well. It covers everything from cosmology to the ancient civilazation. It shows how many popular ideas were formed and gives insight into some of the latest discoveries.
That sounds quite interesting Pete, I'll have to add that to my list of texts to read.
Hard to limit it to one...or ten...
Howl's Moving Castle (Jones)
Bridge of Birds (Hughart)
Seize the Fire (Kinsale)
Anyone But You (Cruisie)
A Gentleman and a Scholar (Sellers)
To Say Nothing of the Dog (Willis)
