      I've gotta say it, 'Impulse' was phantasmigorical! (I learned that word from Lewis Carroll :) Such a good book, but left you with mixed emotions at the end. Has anyone ever read 'It's Kind of a Funn ... more

    (1) 'The Bible' (Inspired of God) ................. For the completeness of life.
    (2) 'Deadline' (Randy Alcorn) ......... For an extraordinary view of what comes next.
    (3) 'This Present Darkness' (Frank Peretti) ......... For a visual of the battles we cannot see.

    Light exists to captivate the blind, illumine the darkness. Revealed, the Inner-mans struggle with rage to be constant and infectious. Rescue appears perilous and can only identify with true sacrifice. Feel brave? His Light, and the courage to stand in it, will turn a heart of stone into the voice of freedom.

    Pretense is the calling card of the remorseless, shallow, and affect. What can never be honored will always be held suspect; How is your word? The counterfeit is incredibly life-like, mimicking the truth in every respect save one; when the TRUTH is uncloaked, it’s authenticity can never be questionable or suspect.

    The New Lifetime Reading Plan - absolutely fantastic guide.
    The Riverside Shakespeare (a library is not a library without Shakespeare)
    The Norton Anthology of Poetry. Superb collection, with a few sad exceptions it includes every major poet.

    For me, I tend to go for more fantasy based stuff than non-fiction (cause reality is boring more times than not) so mine would be:

    1) Across the Wall by Garth Nix
    2) Tales of the Otori trilogy by Lian Hearn
    3) Any of 'The Edge Chronicles' books by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddle

    I do love it when the imagination is messed around with (especially in the latter selection) : D
