The most worn and read book I own


I like some fiction and current authors, some history but mostly literature - I mean the kind of literature one finds more in a library than in a Borders where it seems all emcompassing -
many older authors such as Camus,Voltair,Orwell,
Hemingway,Dickens and Hesse. But my favorite author is Richard Bach - based mostly on 3 books - One, Jonathon Livingston Seagull (one of the best movies I have ever seen from a book BTW) and mostly Illusions - the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah.
A few excerpts from the "Messiahs Handbook"

Dont turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands-you seek problems because you need their gifts
Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours
Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you
The best way to avoid responsibilities is to say Iv'e got responsibilities
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly
Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years

Next best thing to perfect

Hmm...

I do like Orwell and Dickens. I am a voracious reader myself. I read classics, sci fi, fantasy, science stuff, mysteries, biography, current events, true crime, everything but romance-I find it a bit insulting. Of course there are a lot of trash out there in all the categories I name but to appreciate a truly good reading, it helps to read a truly crappy book!

passioante - " but to appreciate a truly good reading, it helps to read a truly crappy book!"
Much like the AdultFriendFinder profiles - lol.
I recall reading Tale of Two Cities - couldnt get past the first 30 pages - then went back to it about 50 pages before the end and would reread it over and over I liked it so much - which of course prompted me to go back to the beginning and read it through.
