On The Road. If I don't finish it in one sitting I won't finish it at all.

Catcher In The Rye. It's a good novel, but not worth the hype.

The Kama Sutra. Interesting, but again not worth the hype.

Red Mars, Blue Mars, Green Mars, ect... I can't remember the name of the series. The concept sounded cool, but man is that shit is long winded.

Dune. Maybe I was pretty young but I just couldn't get into it at all.
Mein Kampf. Ditto.

Ugh. War and Peace is utter crud. On page 200 or so now, in over half a year.

So far all I know it's a bunch of rich families that are afraid of the war because it could make them less rich. Give me a story I can care about a bit.

I remember in High School we had to read Grapes of Wrath.
I remember upperclassmen saying it was a really good book. I read a lot and I thought it was horrible..

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

Wow, that's probably my 2nd favorite book. The Stranger by Albert Camus being my favorite book.

Ok, I have no idea how someone can not like Catcher in the Rye, but whatever. I hated: The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields, Great Expectations by Charles Sickens; Who Has Seen the Wind by W.O. Mitchell.

I wouldn't have liked the Doors of Perception so much if I didn't have a dictionary beside me to look up his big words, but man that essay explains EXACTLY what it feels like (at least to me) to be high on a psychedelic drug.

PS yes I know I typed Charles Sickens but I thought it looked cool so I left it.

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man.  For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.  Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.

Albion's Seeds. A book about the british folkways that migrated to colonial america and the background behind them. Sounds interesting doesn't it?
