    The Books--

    Dhramapada(religous/buddhism), Ways to Practice(religious/any), Hawkmoon (awesome Fantasy story), Tales of Power (Don Juan), Tao Te Ching, Billions and Billions (enviro/nonfiction, Carl Sagan), and hmm..

    Those are some of my rencent ones. There is a huge English book on Buddhism I've read, but that was for interest and more artcile-fact based. I've read a lot of books but the list above stands out well.

    i'm considered a bookworm, i read just about anything, but i'm fond of comedy and fantasy.
    at the moment i'm reading the adventures of sherlock holmes.

    Are the ones that repent

    Yeah... I read too much for my own good. I just barely finished reading Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy (for the 147th tme) and then I plan to read something interesting, like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. That should be interesting.

    Shougun was perhaps the best book i've ever read. It's about the first englishman in Japan, and i thought it was very exciting.

    More recently i read an old 70's book called The Analog Bullet that i found at a used book store. it was about hybrid analog-digital computers and the emergence of artificial sentience. If you can manage to find it, it's a must read for fans of Deus ex Machina, Ghost in the Shell, and The Matrix.
