Tolkien (my favourite of the 3 would probably be The Fellowship Of The Ring) The Riftwar Saga (Magician through The King's Buccaneer), by Raymond E. Feist - AWESOME BOOKS!

Am I correct in assuming that I am the only one here who reads books? <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

I have to admit I don't read a great deal, something I'm not proud of and probably the roots of my poor use of language. Of the books I have read Lord of the Rings sticks in my mind as a favouret along with the Hobbit. Masters of Doom is also a book I like very much.

No I do like reading a lot, so much I'm already having sight problems at my age... But I read mostly books concerning my line of activity, which is architecture (studying still) - I really like Le Corbusier's writtings, for example (RambOrc might know him, as he was from Switzerland (sp?)). The subject I prefer however is what concerns the social and antropologic aspect of architecture, much mroe than design or form, which are also important anyway (but it makes me sick to watch my friends going through tons of architecture magazines every time we have a project to do, hoping to find a fabullous design they will borrow from the author and "adapt" (so I won't say copy) to their work and call it their own idea). BUT these kind of social science gets extremely complicated as go deeper, and also demands a lot of sensibiity and countless hours of study, which I lack... They do, however, open your mind to a whole new level of understanding of our reality, and "to be aware" is one of the main qualities of an architecture, besides artistic capacity, at least here in Oporto School. Anyway, by reading some works on that area, I came upon this one German philosopher called Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzche, and even though I can clearly see that his words has much deeper meanings than my narrow mind can even notice, let alone understand, I have to say that his work "Thus Spake Zaratustra" (or Also Sprach Zarathustra, in the original) has greatly touched me, and is by far the written work I most admire.

LOL I have also studied general Anthropology and Psychology in high school, and I found the studies of Sigmund Freud and Ivan Pavlov (and ESPECIALLY Noam Chomsky) very interesting. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->
