[W]hat the internet and its cult of anonymity do is to provide a blanket sort of immunity for anybody who wants to say anything about anybody else, and it would be difficult in this sense to think of a more morally deformed exploitation of the concept of free speech.

Pleased to see this one on the list
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
fabulous clever book that about a boy with Asperger syndrome. A customer remarked that he finally understood his son after reading this book.

I've read quite a few ... one of my favourites in that list would be 'The Good Earth', by Pearl S Buck ... fabulous.

Also Margaret Atwood .. 'The Handmaiden's Tale'.

Thanks for the link Brownie, there a some awesome books on it.  Some people say you have to read non-fiction to learn anything from books, but I disagree with that.  Reading fiction enables me to understand emotion on many different levels, rather than just understanding the facts about stuff.

I remember reading a few of them like Shogun, Treasure island and a few others, I would add Kiyosakis "Rich dad poor dad", "Foucaults Pendulum", "Delta of Venus", and Wilbur Smiths "Birds of prey"

             I would like to ask anybody 1 question.
              all though "to kill a mockingbird" was a great story, I should think that "The bible" would
              have been the 1st in line. It"s not my favouritie story, but I"m told it"s pretty popular
              around the world.
