May I recommend a few?

"The Diary of Adam and Eve"
"The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn"
both by Mark Twain

"Of Mice and Men" by Steinbeck (inspired a few Tex Avery cartoons)

Thanks, Spumkin! I started to read Huckleberry Finn when I was about 8 and got about a third read.

Ever read Burroughs? Look him up.

Excuse me, that's Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Personally, I haven't read William Burroughs' work. I'll take a look at it, though.

If you read one book by Edgar Rice, read Tarzan. Thats an awesome violent book. Makes the Disney movie look like the lame pile of turds that it is.

Its alright its not a dull post. Everyone should read books, like all the time. The world would be a better place.
