What is the one book everybody should own a copy of?
What is the one book, out of all the books known to us that you think everyone should be required to own or at the least read?
I know I should say the bible but...
My vote goes to 'No Plot, No Problem!' by Chris Baty. Even if you aren't writing a novel, its a great book that makes you feel like getting up and doing SOMETHING. lol! It's really entertaining too.
The Bible. Even for non-believers, it provides a good guide for life, along with beautiful, inspirational verses and poetry.
First and foremost i think EVERYONE should own a copy of the BIBLE !(whether or not they WANT one (because they will need it later)whether they believe it or not)and then....... There are so many great books , however , i have a very very old copy of the old book ,Winnie the pooh by A.A. Milne , And every time i glance to read a few pages to whatever child is around at that time , it always captures a feeling of quaintness , happiness , It is a classic to be enjoyed over and over again, regardless of it being a childrens book , it is well written and illustrated . The book has been around now a very long time , and Pooh has too
I have to agree with Habee. I think everyone needs a bible. Not only are there facinating stories on history, poetry, and inspiration, there are lessons to be learned, and a guideline for a happy, profitable life.
Non-religious believer AC Grayling wrote his own bible- which mimics the King James Bible for those that don't believe in God. He felt everyone should have guildlines to live by for a happier, content life.
I think it should be:
LOVE A Celebration In Art & Literature
Editors: Jane Lahr and Lena Tabori
I love this book for inside are the most inspirational pieces poetry and prose alike of the subject LOVE!
Check it out!
I don't think everyone should own a copy of the BIBLE. That is like saying everyone should own a copy of the Curran. Not everyone is religious and by forcing them to own a copy won't make them religious. That is a personal thing I know but I just thought I would mention it.
I think everyone should own a copy of People of the Same Sun http://www.PeopleOfTheSameSun.com because that is a book that teaches good values while sharing a fictional story for all ages to enjoy.
Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo. This has got to be the BEST book that I've ever read and I recommend it to everyone.
The story of my experiments with truth by Mahatma Gandhiji. Its an auto-biography of Mahatma Gandhiji.
It retails in Amazon for about $ 10. Worth reading to get an understanding of a complex personality and a complex country.
Chariot of the Gods by Erik Von Daninkan (spelled wrong for sure.)
a dictionary. though we use computers for a lot, power outages can make that impossible.
Antony Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange". It's thin. It's small. and it will disturb your pretty little faithful worlds.
if you are 16 then: Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead" would do.
if you get to 18 year replace it with "Helter Skelter" by Vincent Burliosi & Curt Gentry
if you are Muslim then read "The Satanic Verses" by the Indian Writer Salman Rushdie.
How to win friends and influence people. Everbody should read it, it could prove life changing.
The Dresden Codex might be a good book to have laying around......

Is it legal to paint a painting we see someone else has created as long as we copy only by eye?I took an art course once. The professor kept telling us to find images in art books and copy them by eye. She said practicing this way is one of the main ways to learn to paint. She...

I'm experimenting with writing a small eBook - can I use my published hubs and copy some of the content from them into an ebook? I realize my Hubs won't get penalized, but is it a good idea?

Why is it that some writers do not respond to individual comments on their hubs?I noticed this with some writers who have been on HP for two years or more. They will choose to respond directly to some comments and ignore the others. Doesn't it make you feel like not commenting on these writers...
