Yeah i imagine this has only been asked 10,000 times already but i was just curious what kind of stuff you guys read. My personal favorite is Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. His writing style is totally unique and random.

Afro Raven reads a lot too, but he's fairly busy with Uni, when he has time he'll probably share some of the books he's been reading.

When I get home I'll share the rest of the books I own with you. I can't remember all of their names off by heart.

dude Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is awesome!! sadly i haven't finished it yet because I get halfway through it and my sophomore year decides to dump a bunch of homework on me for the rest of the year... then my dad says he wants to read it again... and I don't know where he put it... but that book, I loved it so much to where I got through to it, I need to finish it soon...

I haven't really gotten into books/literature much more than a bunch of rock auto/biographies. I'd like to. I'd really like to read Catcher In The Rye. It seems really good from what I've heard about it.

Read it before you have to in school. It will be much better than when you do(if you do I should say) since they will make you break down every part of the book from his hat to his clothing and everything in between... ugh, it was great but having all that "read between the lines" crap took away from the experience.
Just go check it out and get your nose in it XD before it's too late! lol

haha. It's too "obscene" for my school. The board won't approve it. A couple of my teachers really talked it up though and gave us an online sample they printed out. Looks pretty cool.
