i'm seriously considering spending a summer driving around parts of the country and handing out free books to people.
I don't think people would know what to do with them!
Here is my list:
Off the Grid - A modern alternative architecture book.
Saturn's Children - A sci-fi 'opera', as the author calls it. With fem bots >.>
End of Eternity - Issac Asimov, great time travel book.
I am a Cat - It is a great (and long) read about peoples lives through the eyes of a cat.
1984 - One of the greatest books ever. Everyone should know that, though.
2012 - Going over the scientific phenomenon that could happen around 2012 .. right. Though it does point out some interesting things, such as conclusions of studies done on the Sun and its massive effects on our planet's weather and tectonic systems. It is mainly speculation, but at least it is scientifically based, and not all about heebee jeebee mysticism prophecy crap.
The World Without Us - A scientific study of what would happen if every human vanished from the earth at the same moment and never returned. Really opens your eyes to the way we have drastically altered this planet, and how nature would reclaim it - but one thing is for sure, even if we did vanish, we have altered this world forever.
The Q Continuum - Star Trek nerdyness .. this is one of my favorite Trek books.
The Hatchet - I think we all read this in school, right? Great story.
The Shades of Time and Memory - By Storm Constantine. She is an amazing fantasy writer.
The Fall of Reach - Halo books are great. Can't wait for the Forerunner Trilogy.
Pebble in the Sky - Asimov again >.>
Foundation Series - Er, Asimov. Again. I love his books.
World War Z - Fucking epic book. Get it, now.
Space - Japanese minimalistic architecture.
Thats it for now ...
