What are your fav. books, writers, and why?
I haven't given this much thought. It's more common to go through book after book and generally just get lost in the world of books.
My favourite book would Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. I think it's a work of art; how he managed to spin nonsense ideas in to a coherent and amusing story. Really makes people wonder what kind of mind he has.
I don't have a favourite author as of now. I think I did in the past, but I gave up tracking his/her books because of the long intervals between each book's release or something akin to that.
Currently reading David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell. I'm not sure how new/old the idea of underdogs succeeding is but it's an interesting thought. If you're planning on reading this book and worried about the 'religious' title, it doesn't actually mention much religious content aside from using David as an example. Ah, and also be prepared for a lot of examples.
