It can be a book from ancient history or a recent magazine you love to read.... what piece of literature do you value most?

my favorite is definitely The Autobiography of Malcolm X.. it was a joint venture with Alex Haley but its purely Malcolms thoughts, translated through Haley....it's a great book, required reading for any American citizen or ANY wutang fan.....voice off niggaz

That's one of my favorite books! Have you read Revolutionary Suicide, by Huey P. Newton? One of my favorites, and a must read for any citizen.

I have two:

The Sickness Unto Death - Soren Kierkegaard
Either/Or - Soren Kierkegaard

But I haven't picked up a book in a while. Probably time to do so again.

I mainly read autobiographies & biographies.
If it’s not a biography then its probably a book that was made into a film.
I've got the books to my three favorite films
I’ve got 'American Psycho', 'Fight Club' and 'Stand by Me' (The Body)
The books tend to delve a lot deeper, (or just get sicker in the case of American Psycho)
But I read all of these after I'd seen the films.
The only one I read before I'd seen the film was 'Davinci Code'

The autobiography of Malcolm X was a totally engrossing book. Changed my view of the man.
I've read so many great books, I can't really pick a favorite tho. There is really nothing more satisfying than reading a good book. How it captivates your imagination and you create your own imagery...

^ one of the best reads i ever had

the way it was written was a trip and jsut the content was mind altering

one of the best parts is the convo between Satan and Sin and Death before he travels into Chaos

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST'S TEACHINGS by Leo Tolstoy-

dude basically proves that Jesus is God's Son.

he uses the simplest but illest demonstrations-

War and Peace

^like one he wrote was referring to those who seek proof that Jesus is the Light

he said its like when you enter a room and you can see everything in the room, but you dont see a lamp, maybe the lamp is behind you or over your head-

you dont need proof that theres a lamp there, as long as you can see you know theres light-

Tolstoy drops all kinds of science like that

The Kybalion is the best book ive read so far, and i read a lot.

The Autobiography of Malcolm is one of the greatest books ever, it was the first book i really read because i wanted to, i think i was in 8th grade. It was very influential on me.

Crime and Punishment from Dostoyevsky. IF you are believer in god, and christian especially , read this.

anyway really good book, it kept my attention all the way through.
