In this thread you have to recommend one book only for everyone to read.

I recommend "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins.

ANYONE WHO RECOMMENDS MORE THAN ONE IS A TWIT! :twisted:

I don't really need to post this so I'll just tell you why - it simply and truly saved my life :)
I assume you're talking about LOTR.
Were you carrying it when someone fired an arrow at you, which luckilly hit the book and the thickness of the book saved your life? :laugh:

Was that made into a movie? We had to watch a movie called Whit in my Philosophy of Death class a few years back.

My recommendation (way too many I want to recommend): The Death of Ivan Ilych - Leo Tolstoy

o_O Don't think so. Wouldn't have been much use in that class, I shouldn't think.

In a 'slings and arrows of outrageous (mis)fortune' kinda way yes. I had to go and live there for a long time a few years back :laugh:
lol, I kept buying the set to read and every time I went to read it my ex-husband had thrown it away AGAIN. I have had to live there too.

Garfield. :laugh:

No, no I'm jus joking! Forget what I said, I didn't say anything...

I recommend "The Birthing House". Gives you the shivers, that book and it's full of scary moments and an incredible climax. (Gotta read more. What happens next? Gotta read MORE!) I'll give you the author's name, when I find the book again... If I find the book again.

With pleasure.

Dragons of the autumn twighlight by Tracy Hicman and Margaret Weiss. It's a brilliat book sort of David-Edddings-ish but better. It made me cry, in parts and laugh almost immediatly after. I LOVED it ( thogh terry's book are still better, of course ) :laugh:
 

Book of the Month

Moving Pictures

"Pratchett’s wackiness collaborates with Gaiman’s morbid humour; the result is a humanist delight to be savoured and read again and again."
