    I have been wanting to read some new books lately, but I haven't a clue what to read. I love George Orwell and Groucho Marx and have read most of their books. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some authors similar to the two I mentioned. Or just post some authors and titles of books that you enjoyed. Thanks.

    Have you read the Huxley Book,"The Doors of Perception" yet? Or "The Prophet". Both of which are very good.

    40oz and chronic 'Nuff Said

    this year iv read a lot of Gary Paulsen books i enjoy his writings like The Transall Saga. The Voyage of the Frog, The Car, Harris & Me. and some others that are pretty good.(9th grade books though so might seem kiddy to you)

    i like the book the Catcher in the Rie i just got done reading that. now im reading these fat ass books about The People of the Wolf. it's a whole series about the history of Native Indians. They have The People of the Fire, People of the Ice, People of the Rivers etc. the one im reading is pretty interesting.

    The Catcher in the Rye is pretty damn interesting. Oh, and if you really wanted to get funky, you should read Pippi Longstocking, lol. :) I just finished it, lol. I got bored and I was stoned and I came across that book. And it freaked me out, because I've been looking for it for ages and finally I found out, stoned. I have the power to pick up book vibrations, lol.

    It was just a suggestion. :)
    Really? A Korean ninja with herpes?
    Hmm, that was a giant leap for mankind.
    Why not just smoke a blunt with me?

    So why choose to beat a horse?! That's horrible! Oh man, if I had the money, I would buy half the people on the HipForums a permanent plane ticket to Mobile to stay and live with me. It's sad, though. I love everyone on here and wished we all lived in the same area.

    Yeh, it would be cool if we all recieved teleportation devices, so we could port to and fro everyone on the forums' houses. Maybe I should ask for one for Christmas :p

    A cow, Lmao. A book just fell on me. It's called The Pig Who Sang To The Moon by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. It's a book on the emotional world of farm animals. (Dude, how would you like to have that name for a middle name... Moussaieff?) Good riddance.

    If you like fantasy Robin Hobb writes some really good books. The farseer trilogy and The Liveship Trader trilogy are really good. Helter Skelter is really good too. Lord of the Rings is probably my favorite but im sure you've read that. Thats all taht i can come up with now.
