    I'd like to start a thread about books.... I know lots of you are brilliant people, and a lot of that brilliance is due to reading. If all of you could post your favorite book that would be greatly appreciated.... I know everyone has a few books that really inspire them and they go back to time and time again.... I could use the suggestions for some reading over the holiday.... thank you.

    "Walden" by Henry Thoreau
    fucking awesome. makes me want to build a shack in the woods somewhere nice and remove myself from society. try and get one of the editions with some of his other stuff included with it, like "walking" and "on the duty of civil disobedience" cause they are also worth reading, but not really big enough to justify buying by themselves.

    i really cant think of a favorite. right now im reading 'still she haunts me'

    its about the author of the adventures of alice in wonderland, and his infatuation with a 7 year old girl. well, she was seven when he first became obsessed with her, but he knew her until she was 11. yeah. good stuff.
