Read any good books lately?
    #1418831 - 03/30/03 09:19 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Yes so I have been bored with my fiction books. I went to the bookstore to search for some deep, interesting books that could change my outlook on life completely and unfortunately - it was incredibly hard. I realized you have to actually go into a bookstore with an author in mind or something close to that - otherwise you'll be lost all day and end up coming out with a DVD and 2 CDs (like I did last week). Anyway - what book have you read recently that opened you up to new things - give the author, title and what the general idea of the book is.
Thanks loves!!

the demon haunted world
by the late dr carl sagan
or any of several of his other mind-opening books: cosmos, murmurs of the earth, the cosmic connection, the dragons of eden, broca's brain, etc...
(dr sagan has been accused of scientism, but i find in his writings enough of a sense of wonder, and open-mindedness, that i might classify him more as a deep agnostic, with strong antipathy toward those who are certain that they have found "the answer", as opposed to those who have found a few good questions :wink: ...)
ymmv...

I just finished Brave New World by Aldous Huxley... I must say, it was a great read. Really changed the way I view society.

I need some soma. :smile:

IMO, some Native American tribes are much much more advanced than today's American society.

the picture of dorian gray by oscar wilde.

it is fiction and has a lot to do about appearances vs. reality. it's one of my all time favorites!

grendel, by john gardner is a great book i read not too long ago. you probably had to read beowulf in high school or maybe saw the movie that came out not long ago (i didn't see it, so i don't know if it is true to the book or not). grendel was the monster in the book beowulf. grendel, the book, is an intertwining story from the monster's point of view. the book might not change your life, but it will at least make you think more about those people in life who are made out to be evil, vicious enemies by the media, others..etc, but in reality are not as they are portrayed. if you haven't read beowulf, i would suggest reading it first, so that you know more of the background of the story. i don't think i would have enjoyed grendel as much if i had not read beowulf.

a brief history in time- Stephen Hawking/ cant stand his writing style but extremely informotive for those of us who are not graduates of physics.

Investagating the unexplained-Paul Roland/ sweet book for anyone interested in a fairly objective approach to such things

mmm..You can read most religious documents online if you like too..but theres something preferable about buying a book

Smoker for Peace, I agree. The Native Americans were truly blessed with wisdom.
I believe I would trade in everything I own to be able to live in the traditional way.

"On all the earth there is not one leaf that is exactly like another. The Great Spirit likes it that way. He only sketches out the path of life roughly for all the creatures on earth, shows them where to go, where to arrive at, but leaves them to find their own way to get there. He wants them to act independently according to their nature, to the urges in each of them." - Lame Deer, Sioux Medicine Man
