This post caught my eye and made me both curious to take a look at Amazon’s list of “100 Books to read in a Lifetime” and to make my own personal list of the ten books I have yet to read but would love to in the near future. So here’s my list. They are in no particular order and not the only ones I found interesting, but the ones that interested me the most currently.
1. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
3. Me Talk Pretty One by David Sedaris
4. Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
5. The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien
6. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
7. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
8. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
9. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
10. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
My top three recommendations (of what I have read from the list) are The Poisonwood Bible, 1984, and Things Fall Apart.
Make sure to check out the list on Amazon and maybe read a handful.
So glad FFX/X-2 and KH2,5 are coming out for the PS3. Leaves me some more time to save up for the the next-gen and KH3.
Giving props to a blogger I have been following for some time. Like I assume what most other people did as well, when I joined WordPress I looked through some categories of blogs and was given suggestions of who to follow based on my interests. I clicked a bunch of random blogs that sounded like they would be a good read and decided to later weed out the ones that failed to keep my interest. Of these blogs I randomly clicked was one by a man whose plan is “offend everyone in the world” (taken directly from the sub-heading of the blog). Out of all the blogs I followed those first few days, HarsH ReaLiTy has continually caught my eye while I have scrolled through my “Reader” feed.
In the past couple of months, Opinionated Man- as he calls himself- launched several different projects that he worked on while posting his daily handful of posts. Among these projects was Project O, which. Fought together people from everyone who shared the similar interest of having their own opinion about everything and anything. Recently, HarsH ReaLiTy has hosted a poetry contest and has been/will be featuring guest writers on the blog alongside the post of the great OM.
The link provided should take you to the blog’s main page. If you have some time, I suggest browsing through some of the posts. I will offer a last warning though- you may get offended.
