I just ordered a shipment of books off amazon:

Ender's Game
Flowers for Algernon
Grimmer Than Hell
The Abhorsen Trilogy Box Set
A Canticle for Leibowitz

and I also found a satirical novel by Voltaire at a garage sale for under a dollar  :)

Lately I've been spending a lot of time reading political commentary and articles from Eric Margolis, a columnist here in Toronto.  The man's a genius.

I run into his editorials sometimes.  He's quite the opposite of what you usually read in the Sun.

Not sure how familiar you are with him, but he seems to write here fairly often - http://www.lewrockwell.com/margolis/margolis-arch.html

 :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

by far my favorite book. The original Dune. I read the next 2 or 3 books in the series and in my opinion it became too political, but the original Dune was just perfect in every way conceivable.

Well the original Dune is the perfect mix of action, suspense, mythology and occult themes all wrapped up in a sci-fi setting - also it is very well written from the technical point of view...

My only quiver with it is that sometimes it tends to drag a little bit focusing on minor details - but this is small nitpicking...

Another Dune lover here! :D
There comes a time, thief, when the jewels cease to sparkle, when the gold loses its luster, when the throne room becomes a prison, and all that is left is a father's love for his child.

Great book - possibly the best read by Nietzsche...
