    in response to which book?

    behold the pale horse is one of the most famous conspiracy books i think.

    i've heard people tell me those who read it were sent to prison or some shit.

    yea i meant the pale horse book. is it a fiction novel?

    as for people sent to prison.. i had a friend who told me once that the govt has close ties with beings from another dimension, and warned me strictly never to repeat that info over the phone or else i'd have agents tracking me. in other words... people are full of shit.

    i doubt it's fiction, it's just a bunch of conspiracy theories by william cooper.

    william cooper also denied aids, so.

    lol. fair.

    C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters.

    To be honest, I haven't read it, so it's obviously not my favourite, but it's a friend of mine's favourite book, and it sounds really interesting.

    My favourite is Ham of Rye by Bukowski. It has a "fuck off" vibe that I haven't seen since.

    I'll keep it to one book.

    Apathy, And Other Small Victories, by Paul Neilan.

    It's short, easy, and poignant.

    Not to mention hilarious. One of the few books that actually made me LOL.

    I got the For Whom The Bell tolls audio CDs from my library not long ago for a road trip and ripped them to my computer but it was at least 16 discs (all about an hour long). I read books a lot faster than the audio, but if you have some time on a commute it wouldn't take long.

    There are a lot of Audio books on youtube, free for your ripping pleasure.


    That one's in pieces, but you see what I mean. Could probably just torrent them anyway, I don't know why I bothered with the Youtube.

    yeah noticed some were on youtube during my search. i like to have the audio on the kindle so i dont have to be near a computer, but for any i cant find in torrent or other download, i will use that to check.

    thanks for the suggestions, still looking at the ones mentioned.
