I liked this book alot, it was extremely insightful on the Hell's Angels and their mentality, as well as you giving a look a Thompson before he became the Hunter Thompson everyone knows and loves.  I just finished Fear and loathing in Las Vegas and am moving onto Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, I hope to get through most of his major works before 2010 is over.

You should also check out "The Rum Diary". Thompson's shot at a semi-fiction.

about 40% of the tao of the wu is good the rest is some RZA bullshit.

I recently read:






A Scanner Darkly
is so damn good.  The first Phillip K Dick I've read and will be reading alot more.  Celine is also really cool and I'm reading some of Death on the Installment Plan before classes really start back up.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

dont know if anyone suggested it yet, but kite runner i finished in 3 days, thought the last 50 pages feel like kind of a drag, the story is really good.


gonna read this once school ends, the show isnt nearly as good as band of brothers, but hoping the book will provide more insight, the band of brothers book was amazing.


finished this a couple weeks go, really crazy life this girl lived. mom and dad pretty much chose not to feed their kids half the time and wallow around, kind of depressing:

(the fuck up)



anything by any of these authors will absolutely never disappoint.


eerie how much we have in common(among literacy). pretty stoked on the bob frissel book, dont know of anyone else who reads his shit.
like 3 days a week after skating i used to go to barnes&nobles and steal a book or two. this went on for about a year until i took 'johnny got his gun'' and the alarm went off. i got away but not before their suspicions about me were sealed.

You could go to the library. Unless, you live in Texas and books is outlawed.

Anybody here read non fiction?

I'm reading Wikinomics from where I had left off over a month ago. It gives me all sorts of business ideas, one that I'll be launching soooon when exams are done :D But the book is really dry material... Blah. Worth the read though, pretty interesting, makes you think.

You should probably read these first.
