  1. Who the fuck wants to see your fucking book list, you stupid boring CUNT?

  2. Might I suggest that you indulge in some light reading occasionally, Gavin? All work and no play etc…

  3. perhaps u could post a ebook of silverthorn seeing and the 3rd book of the saga seeing as i’m as poor as hell and i have read magician so me need free book to read

  4. jared diamonds guns, germs and steel is an essential read. good collection but you need some pjorourke to lighten things up. you travelled a bit so “holidays in hell” will suit.

  5. Youv’e read many books but have you read the Koran? not a joke buddy, I had a list far bigger than yours but when i read the Koran i didnt want to read any other bokk after that and I was a Jew!!! halalujah, I am a muslim now, Alhamdulillah (all thanks to Almighty God)

  6. grand collectoin……but I think you could do with some lighhearted/comedy books. Not only is comedy a fun escape it can help to see the other side to absurd ideas….and clarify your thinking.

  7. could you please post an ebook of silverthorn and darkness at sethanon by raymond feist…. i’m quite desperate for the book, so…. please post an ebook…. kindly

  8. where on this site do i find ur raymond e feist blogs cuase from this page i got no clue and i just finished the rise of the merchant prince and am hungry to read the rest b4 i buy the next 1 again on payday plz help

  9. and to the 2nd last blog from Whatever who is the 1 that needs a life considering u were replying to some1 from over a year b4 as i am now hehehe:P and my point is do u actually think the person u were trying to put down is still needing that book or even still reading the series still maby ur the 1 that needs a life not goin around the net reading blogs and berating all the normal people a year after they posted them and if u still login to check every1’s reply to these blogs it proves my point even more!how bout just letting every1 b thier own people and b they wanna b and not take out ur lifes agression on us 🙂 enjoy….

    sry to every1 else for this just had to serve it bak hehehe enjoy ur reading:)))))

  10. I would suggest reading Rand’s Atlas Shrugged rather than The Fountainhead. They are both fantastic, but Atlas Shrugged is so much better.

    🙂

  11. Rand is pathological, really not a good example of intellectual responsibility.
    That is ofcourse unless you see yourself as agreeing with neo-liberalism.
