Loving What Is by Byron Katie

The Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East by Baird Spalding

Both of these books had a profound effect on my life and way of thinking.

Why is this in the compost heap?

Will there be a debate about one's favourite books?

A: "my favourite book was Wuthering Heights"

B: "no it bloody well wasn't, you filthy piece of ****"

It's funny because it's true!

I think Silver is used to posting their threads in the Heap, so it was just automatic thought.

The most profound book I have read is Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Okay, that's not true.

No, really.
Good choice!

For me: A prayer for Owen Meaney

Watership Down

Charlotte's Web

I'm not sure I've read much I'd consider profound yet. I don't know. I guess Peter Singer's writings were as close as it gets for me, and life changing. Albert Camus' The Stranger was life changing, too. Although it helped that my emotions were already numbed by a large regimen of zoloft at the time.

I also found many essays of Emerson to be very affirming as a teen. There are also books that have greatly helped me, but I'm not sure they are profound, more instructional.

I tried for years to find a copy of the complete The Adventures of Luke Skywalker to no avail. Do you own that second printing, TJ?

"Kiss My Tiara: How to rule the world as a smartmouth goddess"

One that I think more females should read is "He's Just Not That Into You." I could've written that book. Most of it was common sense to me, but apparently it's not to most women.
