List making is the great past time of the 21st century. You guys won't say which books you have read just for fun so we can discuss them ? You hate the list that much ? Or haven't read any of the shitty books on it because the list sucks that bad ? I'll read anything I get my hands on. If it doesn't...

as you can see a lot of the books are the same it looks like they, maybe, tried to be a tiny bit more contemporary and added a few children's books for some reason. Yeah these lists are by no means definitive. I think they are meant to get people talking about books they have read. I personally like...

I Like Ayn Rand's novels even though I don't agree with her philosophy I'm sort of (SORT OF!) the opposite. Her 'philosophy' has some (SOME!) merits, but her novels are garbage that children can read, thus undoing the 'integrity' she holds dear. I like that they are trashy. I enjoy trash every once...

There is also a Readers List which was decided by poll. In that list 7 out of the top 10 are either by Ayn Rand or L.R. Hubard. I Like Ayn Rand's novels even though I don't agree with her philosophy but I didn't expect to see sooooo many books by her so high on the list. I havn't read L. Ron. There ...
