Raymond Carver: Collected Stories (Library of America #195) by Raymond Carver
Raymond Carver: Collected Stories (Library of America #195)

rewjr, September 24, 2011

I have been transfixed by the short stories of Raymond Carver. He strikes me as being not far different from Charles Bukowski. More refined perhaps but just as honest. His story, A Small, Good Thing is especially moving.

The Three Pillars of Zen by Roshi Phili Kapleau
The Three Pillars of Zen

rewjr, September 2, 2011

Phillip Kapleau's Three Pillars of Zen opened my eyes to a new way of looking at the world, myself, and my life. It helped answer many questions and created many others. I recommend it to anyone who wants to find out more about themselves.

Ideas and Opinions (Modern Library) by Albert Einstein
Ideas and Opinions (Modern Library)

Ideas and Opinions by Albert Einstein has opened my mind to his thought processes and his explanation of his theories in this book made them understandable to me. Einstein in his own words...who could ask for more?

Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk

rewjr, July 6, 2011

I discovered Chuck Palahniuk in an article on Wikipedia. I started with Lullaby and couldn't put it down. I finished in about a day and a half and started on Diary, the next book in a trilogy. Lullaby was funny, frightening, engrossing. I have recommended it to more than one friend as I will Diary.
