^for everyone digging Huxley don't sleep on his other books. Island is pretty cool as it's his take on what utopia would be like. So that's kinda the opposite of BNW in a lot of ways. Doors of perception is real interesting, an online text of which is found here:
http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/lsd/doors.htm

Also his first book of short stories, Twice Seven, is really cool if you could find it but beware as they are more in the traditional literature vein and have really little or nothing in common with BNW or Island. Still fresh though so I definately recomend it. The Genius and the Goddess is sever intellectual punishment (in a good way) from start to finish. It's in the form of a conversation. And that's all I've read from him. For a lot of great essay's and more on-line texts by Huxley check this page: http://somaweb.org/

My personal favorites are:
everything by JD Salinger
everything by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

....because they know what God is and don't fuck around.

check this little bit of The Brothers Karamazov called "The Grand Inquisitor": http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext05/inqus10.txt

Here are some great books:

The Souls of Black Folk--W.E.B. Dubois
this book is essential for ever attempting to understand the relationship between oppressor and oppressed. not just blacks and whites in america. it gives a HUMAN analysis and solution (not just economical, socialist, etc) for oppression. malcolm X did what dubois predicted would happen in this book.

Guns, Germs, and Steel--Jared Diamond
explains the way the world is set up today (i.e.,whites and europeans colonized everyone and are so rich today, but why???) and why in terms of geography. in the process it destroys some of the major notions used to support racism.

To tell the truth, probably the most enjoyable book I've ever read is Jenna Jameson's autobiography, "How To Make Love Like A Porn Star". That book was awesome.

The most valuable books I've read are anything by Neale Donald Walsch. No one in particular. The message is always the same.

Favourite fictions would be "Needful Things", "The Long Walk" and "The Shining", all by Stephen King. Huge fan of a lot of his work though.

I've read the Quran, a fair bit of the Bible (still reading), Chuang Tzu, the Tao Te Ching and "Art Of War", but I really can't say I got much out of them. Although I did enjoy the latter 3. The Quran and Bible I whole heartedly detest.
