  1. Well i been trying to think of something i wanted for christmas, and the only thing i came up with was some more books.

    I've never read any of Hunter S. Thompson's books, i was thinking about getting some of them.

    Anyone have any ideas? I like all sorts of stuff, any ideas are good ideas. I'd like to find a good book on growing too.

    Thanks.
     
  2. Canabible for growing?

    I aient sure i aient never actually seen it in person.

    I dont read much.
     
  3. John Grisham is my favorite author
    The Firm is one of his best...

    but for Hunter S Thompson..I'd suggest Where The Buffalo Roam

    .........

    ..
     
  4. If you're interested in fantasy try wicked. (a book turned into a broadway musical).
    Don't let the whole "broadway musical thing" turn you off of the idea though.
    Look it up, i've been reading it for a while.. and i have to say it is very very interesting.
    All the different politics involved, and this whole other world is something i can sink my eyes into and read for hours.
     
  5. 1984 - george orwell
    the doors of perception & heaven and hell - aldous huxley (they are actually two essays)

    um. and i have no idea why i can't think of anything else.
    when/if my brain decides to function again, i'll add some more.

    p.s. books are what i'm asking for, too! hah.
     
  6. cool, thanks for the ideas, i'm going to go look them up.

    keep ideas coming
     
  7. Kurt Vonnegut - Sirens of Titan
     
  8. Obviously fear and loathing. That book is damn good.
     
  9. Walden - Henry David Thoreau
     
  10. I love reading cleverly written suspense novels that make you think a lot, and if that sounds like something youd be into you should check out some of these by Dean Koontz :
    The Watchers (probably my favorite book)
    The Taking (pretty crazy)
    Frankenstein 1 and 2 (remade to make sense in a modern era, making a 3rd soon)
     
  11. Definitly anything by ayn rand like anthem the fountainhead or atlas shrugged. Or perhaps some stienbeck like cannary row or in dubious battle. Or for some insanity, farenhieght 451
     
  12. Seems every once in a while a thread like this pops up lol. I´ll just name the ones I usually post.

    Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
    Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
    A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
     

  13. i was just about to say something from ayn rand

    i just started the fountainhead. i find it really interesting
     
  14. oh yeah.. how can I forget a very interesting page turner :
    Dmt : The Spirit Molecule by Rick Strassman
     
  15. Yes, if you're willing to dedicate the time I definitely recommend Atlas Shrugged

    READ
    Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_Lunch




    there is a movie vaguely based on the book;

    [ame="http://www.hulu.com/watch/15520/naked-lunch"]Hulu - Naked Lunch - Watch the full feature film now.@@AMEPARAM@@http://www.hulu.com/embed/tkySxh1GxItaxfBXb_S_Rw@@AMEPARAM@@tkySxh1GxItaxfBXb_S_Rw[/ame]






    :smoking:
     
  17. WATCHMEN- alan moore, the other guy

    hurry up and read this before the movie comes out and ruins everybody's perception of this masterpiece. yes, even I was skeptical about a 'comic book' being better than a lot of regular books, but it is one hell of a ride, and unlike anything I have ever read, or will ever read.

    20,000 Leagues under the sea
    catcher in the rye
    animal farm

    or whatever floats your boat
     
  18. im not a huge reader.
    candy by kevin brooks was good.
    and martyn pig. and the road of the dead.
    all by kevin brooks.

    well, i doubt dudes would get into them...
    but get high and read them, thats when i did.
    *shrugs*
    cant say i didnt try. haha
     
  19. are u into trippin at all?
     
  20. cause my boys been tellin me about this book called electric koolaid-check it out
