I have been challenged, by my wife, to read every one of the books in my massive collection (just over 150) of Isaac Asimov literature.-parkint (February 19, 2010, 11:03 AM)

I've got to admire such a noble quest.

Hey Guys, I admit I haven't read a fiction book for ages. At the moment I am looking for inspiring stories, does anyone have a favourite biography?

One of the old collections of Van Vogt (SF writer from way back, once famous for writing 'Slan'). I'm away from home right now, so I can't look in my read-and-going-to-pass-it-on box to check the title, but I think it was either 'Destination: Universe!' or 'The Book of Van Vogt'.

Wikipedia page on A. E. van Vogt.  You do realise that DC supporting members and above are Slans, don't you?  8)

The two last books I've read were:
The Noticer, by Andy Andrews,  
The Shack, by William P Young,

"Finally, a guy meets God!" To me, a non-atheist, The Shack was mindblowing. It is like realizing yet another dimension. It is well written, and it is so full of understanding on the highest level, that I have had a hard time understanding it was 'merely' written by a human. It is out of this world.

An exceptional piece of writing that ushers you directly into the heart and nature of God in the midst of agonizing human suffering. This amazing story will challenge you to consider the person and the plan of God in more expansive terms than you may have ever dreamed.

David Gregory, author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger-about 'The Shack'

The Shack is also offered as an Audio♩♪♫♬Book

The Noticer is a fantastic clever book. It doesn't reveal a new dimension but it takes away the veil that may be covering what is already in front of you. "Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective".

It comes in all sorts of formats, printed and electronic. I am attaching a large print sample pdf version:

The book has been followed by a large scale project:

Edited: serious spelling error corrected. Thanks, cranioscopical and slowmaker.

I'm pretty sure you meant 'veil'; the other way would be mighty gross, I suspect. :D

On the other hand, walking through curtains of veal might be interesting if you're feeling peckish...
