On another note, should not system kill this thread and make a new one?
watch out, that book sucks. I mean, it's exactly the same as P&P, except every once and a while the zombies attack. the zombies don't actually add anything into the storyline.

Yet again, I've abandoned Foundation. Scifi is something I really wanted to get into, but most of it just does not appeal to me.

Moving on to A Clockwork Orange and maybe a Kerouac novel.

I see that a few people are reading Rand. I don't know if her philosophy will completely stick with me, but her books completely revolutionized the way that I look at politics and philosophy.

Actuality, I skipped P&P&Z and went for more history. I just finished Adam, Eve, and the Serpent by Elaine Pagels. Its about how various groups Jews and Early (1st-5th century) Christians interpreted Genesis. Interesting theological debates and discussions over free will, sin, nature, etc....

for clockwork, make sure you read the full version not the shortened american one, makes a big difference if you havent read it before.

I'm currently reading another Irvine Welsh novel which im enjoying just as much as i did trainspotting...Crime

The Scarlet Letter

Most difficult thing i've read to date. (i'm a sophmore)
Lots of unnecessary big words it seems. Though it was written in 1850.
