    I shall add my voice to the Why? group.

    And may I make a suggestion with respect to recommended books? Post the Amazon link.

    Then people can click on it and read the editors' reviews and readers' reviews, if any.

    Like this: I highly recommend the ancient Greek novels of Mary Renault. For example, The Last of the the Wine.

    Why?

    In reply to why, this book portrays handicaps as important and artistic. It almost makes you want to have a disease or even to be color blind...to get into an accident to find out where your talent really lies...Anyway it really is a good book. I am currently listening to the book Into the Wild and I also think this is very interesting...it is the story of a young man who gave up his inheritance to go into the wilds of alaska with almost nothing. Very enjoyable! Into the wild:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/038...Fencoding=UTF8

    Better yet: Haiku U : From Aristotle to Zola, 100 Great Books in 17 Syllables

    For example, Aristotle Metaphysics

    Substance has essence.
    Form adds whatness to thatness.
    Whatsits have thinghood.

    Reflect on this for a moment, and you will have mastered the essence of a book that is not easy to read.

    I too read "Into the Wild" a long time ago just before I did my hike on the Appalachian Trail. It's a good read and I'm curious to see the movie when it comes out on DVD. Quite an adventure book.
    BTW, there's one I've always meant to read, its about a guy who took a very long canoe ride. It was called something like 12000 miles on a canoe or something, anyone know the book?

    Author

    One of my all time favorite authors is James Patterson. The series of the Women's Murder Club, are his best. There are 7 right now and I am waiting anxiously for the 8th in the series. Good plots, keep your attention and on the edge of your seat.

    If you like adventure/travel stories, read "Blue Highways" by William "Least Heat" Moon, an Amerind who made a trip around the U.S.A. in a rickety van.
    It is a fairly old book, written in the early nineteen-eighties, but it is a real page-turner, and quite humorous at times.
