    Does anybody here read?

    I've just recently finished reading Sex, Drugs and Coco-Puffs, Spanking Shakespeare, I Am America: And So Can You and Daddy Needs a Drink. (Theyre all funny as $#@!)
    any good books you could reccommend?

    Re: Books

    Last funny book I read was Al Franken's last book.

    I only read non-fiction, usually political or history, also sports books.

    These days, I don't have time to read for pleasure. All my reading is work related. Money Wrench Gang isn't going to help me with nationwide class certification.

    Re: Books

    Easily Abbey's most famous fiction work, the novel concerns the use of sabotage to protest environmentally damaging activities in the American Southwest, and was so influential that the term "monkeywrench" has come to mean, besides sabotage and damage to machines, any violence, sabotage, activism, law-making, or law-breaking to preserve wilderness, wild spaces and ecosystems.
    The book's four main characters are ecologically-minded misfits a Jack Mormon river guide, a surgeon, his young assistant, and a rather eccentric Green Beret Vietnam veteran, George Hayduke. Together, though not always working as a tightly-knit team, they form the titular group dedicated to the destruction of what they see as the system that pollutes and destroys their environments, the American West. As their attacks on deserted bulldozers and trains continue, the law closes in.


    Dream Garden Press hardcover edition with a cover illustration by Robert Crumb
    The book was praised for its erudition, flair, down-home wit, and the accuracy of its descriptions of life away from civilization. (Abbey made the West his home and was a skilled outdoorsman.)
    Interestingly from a 21st-century viewpoint, the Gang in some ways bears little resemblance to the modern media's portrayal of environmentalists they eat lots of red meat, own firearms, drink beer (and litter the roadside with empty cans), drive big cars, etc. (Abbey's habits were reportedly similar.) Also, Abbey's politics are not "bleeding heart" (as most of the characters dismiss liberalism): they attack Indians as well as whites for their consumerism, hold little regard for the Sierra Club, etc.
    The Gang sees the 'enemy' as those who would develop the American Southwest: despoiling the land, befouling the air, and destroying Nature and the sacred purity of Abbey's desert world. The greatest hatred is focused on the Glen Canyon Dam, a monolithic edifice of concrete that dams a beautiful, wild river, and which the monkeywrenchers seek to destroy. Indeed, one of the book's most memorable scenes is that of Abbey's character Seldom Seen Smith, as he kneels atop the dam praying for a "pre-cision earthquake" to remove the "temporary plug" of the Colorado River.

    Re: Books

    I ended up picking up Chuck Klosterman's novel Downtown Owl.
    So far it's really well written but i still dont know what its about lol (I'm half way through)

    I like the way Klosterman writes, though. He's really descriptive and knows how to engage the reader.

    Re: Books

    I don't like books. If it's a decent book, they'll eventually make a movie out of it. Watching the movie version allows me to save precious time I would have squandered reading.

    I generally only read technical publications at this point.
