I love these memes. I hate to waste my time on a bad book, so a recommendation goes a long way with me.

I want to read that Myth Maker one.

I'd have to think long and hard to name 3 faves...and limiting it would be tough. "The people's history of the united states" by howard zinn is a must read for every american. I'll get back to you on the others ;-).
