    fiction? star wars, dude!

    really, Ishmael is a terrible book. On History Channel, even, Rick Green of "History Bites" (great show) makes fun of that book. I know people that love that book, and I don't like them. It's all good that you're reading that shit, 'cuz I did too. It ain't cool if you agree, however. Quinn is supporting veganism, and moreover, going back to the hunter/gatherer system. yeah - ok!

    yes, i understand people have a problem with his views and conservation in general, but i was asking what kind of stuff you like, it seems like your list has only one fiction title, and i've never read anything by Mowat. I'd like to learn about more authors.

    Farley Mowat I've know since I was a kid, and he is the bomb. A great Canadian writer who speaks of our terrain. I love him most for his great books that pretty much speak from an animal's perspective. In fact, I read this one short story (a rarity) that he wrote that was all about a dog. Believe that it was way sicker than anything Jack London (props) could write, as far as 'dog in the wild' perspectives go. Mowat is the shit.

    Hell, that first book I listed is my mental workout. i read a couple of pages at a time, you know? Even that commie bastard Engels impresses the fuck out of me.

    Also, I just got from the library today a book that looks bomb. It's a thick hardcover that is all about Nazi propaganda. I can't wait until I tackle that mutherfukker.
