While I will admit that Ayn Rand is one crazy bitch, that book is actually one of my favorites. I love it and reread it once a year. And I am not trying to be impressive…I would mention things like my record of being the person who comments on blogs the most…or something like that.
btw-nice to meet you in person tonight!

Back atcha, E.
So, what’s on your list, huh?

In no particular order (and subject to change at any time):
Survivor by Chuck Palahnuik
Atlas Shrugged/The Fountainhead ( I fight internally over which I love more)
Blue Like Jazz
A Complicated Kindness
A Wrinkle in Time
To Kill a Mockingbird

Amy reads Atlas Shrugged about once a year. I read Anthem once. I loved it, but I can’t imagine reading it again instead of something I haven’t read before.
My ten, in case you ask, would be:
10) Complete works of Authur Rimbaud translation by Schmidt (it’s not the best translation, but it was my first).
9) Candide by Voltaire
8) The Wild Party by Joseph Moncure March
7) The Stranger by Camus (the Matt Ward translation)
6) Tae Te Ching by Lao-tzu (Thomas Cleary Translation)
5) Fox in Sox by Dr. Seuss
4) Mockingbird Wish Me Luck by Charles Bukowski.
3) Still Life w/Woodpecker by Tom Robbins
2) Marriage of Heaven & Hell (illustrated by author) by William Blake.
1) still looking for it.
Like the previous responder, my list is subject to change at a moments notice. These are the ones that come quickly to mind, which I guess makes them pretty damn good candidates.
