Book Recommendations (if you're interested) [Aug. 4th, 2003|02:59 pm]

I just got home. I still have a big headache, but besides that everything's going great. I thought it would be a good day to recommend some books, if anyone's interested.
Thanks to Treepatter, I now have read the great book I mentioned in a previous entry, "They Stole Our Country: We're Taking Her Back" by Walter Pietsch, as well as the 2000 and 2001 versions of "Censored" by Peter Phillips and Project Censored (which are wonderful sources of information). "Pulp Facts: Paper, Pollution and the Press" is one story that particularly interested me. Anyway, thanks again, Treepatter!
Another nonfiction book that is also great and that I'm sure I've mentioned before, is "A Language Older Than Words" by Derrick Jensen.
I love fantasy, and some of my favorite titles in this category are "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Silmarillion" by J.R.R. Tolkien, and "Song for the Basilisk" by Patricia A. McKillip.
Fiction books that focus on an animal's point of view are very few, but I really like the ones I have found. "The White Bone" is kind of stupid but teaches a really strong message that we are animals as well, and should treat nature as if it is a part of us, because it is. "Watership Down" is just plain entertaining, but also has a message about how the animals we murder every day feel about us.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a good week, and that my recommendations will be useful in some way.

Remind me in the not too distant future to ask you about this again. I want to finish Language and a few other books I have... but I'd love to go on your recommends. Right after I get a book of Poe, that is.

Thanks a lot--yeah, Poe's poems are on my waiting list as well.
