    Usually, after a strong hurricane we'll be without power for weeks, you get used to it. Being without power is not the worst thing that could happen, I'd much rather choose that over not having any water.

    But this doesn't happen to a "shitty book." Maybe one can contest her ideas are shitty; that's something else.

    That Reader's List is a fucking joke. Ayn Rand, L Ron Hubbard, and then fucking Stranger in a Strange Land in the top 20? Give me a break, people are retarded.

    Edit: What's even more ridiculous is that all of the books are English. The only real foreign author on there is Nabokov, but he wrote Lolita and Pale Fire in English. And the names of the lists are "Best Novels" not "Best Novels in English." Utterly ridiculous. You really should try to find another top 100 list if you're going to say Ayn Rand is a good writer.

    Now here is a book I think anyone of any age can enjoy: Mouse Guard

    If anyone is familiar with the book Redwall, it's a lot like that in a way, but in comic book form.

    I've read all of Atlas Shrugged, and I'd recommend to anyone contemplating reading it to just go blow their brains out. It's a lot easier, a lot quicker, and a hell of a lot less painful.

    And no, I don't support socialism.

    Redwall in comic form? Sign me up. Those Redwall books were quality reads back in the day.

    Yeah, I got it as a surprise present. Never heard of it before that moment. Now I'm absolutely hooked. The art is phenomenal. I usually spend a minute or two on a single panel before turning at times.

    I looked at that list a little more closely and uh..7 of the top 10 on the readers side are either Ayn Rand or L. Ron Hubbard. Talk about some ballot stuffing, sheesh.

    My friend JUST showed me that book the other day. Funny you should mention it - I thought it was kind of hard to find.

    You guys hit up Cinnabon, I'd rather go to Carvel.

    I know it's not news, but how excellent is Look Around You? I finally ended up putting them on my iPod, as they are perfect video tidbits that never get old no matter how often I watch them.

    Should I be worried if I haven't got a clue who Ayn Rand is? I mean I mostly read European stuff and I guess I've read many old Clive Cussler's novels though. Does education in America involve a lot of "reading books" as that's the picture I get from the media. I'd say here we have 100% of population that can read but we had to read about one book each year for school (elementary/secondary) and basically you could read the first and last ten pages and pass easily. So, the thing that I'm implying is that does school make you to read novels ( or some classic ones ) ?

    Really depends on two factors here in Ameirca: location and private or public schooling.

    I went through both private and public education in a upper/middle class environment out in east PA. We had to read a lot of old American authors and poets like Poe, Hemmingway, Dickinson, Crane, etc. in middle school up into high school. I think about sophmore year, we started to read more European authors but everything we read was really big name authors. It's like, "everything you're supposed to have read by now."

    Now that I'm in college, well... I should really read more novels, to be honest. My main diet consists of online articles and excerpts now-a-days.

    Well, my Uni's initials were UPR, though everyone calls it UP for short.... it sound's weird in English... kinda like "You pee".

    Do they party hard? I'm curious what UPR stands for over there. Here it's "Universidad de Puerto Rico"... which is Spanish for University of Puerto Rico...
