One of Kobe Briant favourite books: Jonathan Livingston Seagull was life changing for me.
Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card. I've read it on an almost annual basis for the last decade or so.
i've molded my whole fucking life after Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein and Conan the Barbarian by Robert E. Howard
I managed to find this one book, it wasn't easy to find!
But I managed to fit it just right to hold my living room door open just right, without letting too much light in at night.
SHOGUN - by James Clavell ( a gateway to the other books in this TREMENDOUS series)
BLOOD MERIDIAN - By Cormac Mccarthy (most uncomfortable and unflinching book ever written)
LOTR (the gold standard by which any adventure will be judged)
Anna Karenina for me. Such a powerful book even though I'm not a believer I kind of modeled my life through the lenses of one of the characters, Konstantin Levin.
Wore the spine out of the paperback version
Do you mind giving us a quick summary?
i got you bro, nazis are bad, the end
Thx, bro. Sounds like a good read.

The mindfulness Pirsig writes about is soooooo needed today. The idea of performing a task without so much as music playing, and doing so for hours, is completely foreign to most people, as is a relationship between you, your work, and what you're working with.
I have told everyone I know (especially those that ride) to read this book. I need another copy.
Fairly certain I've held every edition of the book in my hands since age 15. I've given away probably like 8 copies to friends, and I never ask for a book to be returned.
From 1942 to 1944, in a Nazi occupied Amsterdam, the thirteen years old German Jewish girl Anne Frank lives hiding in an attic of a condiment factory with her sister, her parents, three members of another family and an old dentist. Along more than two years, she wrote in her diary, her feelings, her fears and relationship with the other dwellers.
