"lmao, i didn't even see cd's post, bwhahaha"
LMAO thats funny
If you're looking for something more contemporary (and perhaps quite timely considering the recent violence), I highly recommend the following books by Tim O'Brien, the best of the Vietnam writers IMHO:
The Things They Carried
Going After Cacciato
In The Lake of the Woods
I could give all to Time except - except
What I myself have held. But why declare
The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
And what I would not part with I have kept.
Bah... stick with magazines or Choose Your Own Adventures.
I like to look at the pretty pictures.
