I’ve wanted to do this in a while, so let’s-a-go!
We will pick a book to read every 2 weeks, randomly selected from a list. Put in your recommendations, I’ll put in 10 books at the moment apart from my suggestions.
Try to include a place to read these books if you can. Either that, or go to the library, fatty.
1.Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
2.The Sight by David Clement-Davies
3.White Fang by Jack London
4.The Stand by Stephen King
5.The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley
6.Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
7.Disney Animal Friends Hey! Let’s Play coloring books
8.Slaughterhouse Five, by Kurt Vonnegut
9.Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell
10.
11.
12.

Sorry. I like both books equally.

But, I guess if I have to…

Due to my wolfishness, I choose White Fang.

Lol, already chose for you by flipping a coin.

For The Win by Cory Doctorow.
This book is seriously better than Little Brother.


Also, how can we read these books without buying them?

Like this:

1. Type “read X” into Google, with X being the name of the book.
2. Click the first link, it probably works.
3. ???
4. Profit!

Here’s some examples:

1984
Animal Farm
Brave New World
White Fang

I read the book little brother.

It was about a little brother, and his big brother ran him over with a car.

THE END

Well, this is a bit of a bump, but relevant.

Let’s say I want to learn to do something, doesn’t matter what. How would I know if a book is telling me the best possible way of doing something?

“Ding Dong! Time’s Up!”

I loved this book. I’ve read it multiple times, front to cover, then listened to it as an audiobook. Every time, it’s been amazing. Mr. Doctorow never fails to deliver. One of my favorite characters was Lu, most definitely Lu. Discuss!
