    I seen that the currently reading thread is still active, but what books are your favorite(s)? Could be anything, not just a photography based book.

    That's not the first time I've heard that, but never got around to reading some from him. Any suggestions on a specific one to start on?

    Breakfast of Champions, Slaughterhouse 5, Sirens of Titan, eeks, I've read all of them. It's been years since I've opened a book, litterally. Who has time for a book since the laptop was invented :D

    Warning, KV is a bit off the beaten path and your perspective on things may become warped :D
