The cart was bombarded today and the stop at Right to Dream Too was bustling with activity as the group had called a meeting to discuss their goals and ambitions for the future of their home site. Colete and Torry found a couple of books each. Torry is looking for The Alchemist, The Prophet and Atlas Shrugged. Jeremy requested the Encyclopedia of Modern Body Building and any nonfiction book about nutrition.
She settled on a book by local author Jason Breedlove, who donatd a couple copies of his new book, Hole, to Street Books a month or so ago. She is wild about the Dune series and requested that we look for books in the series written by Brian Herbert (Frank Herbert's son) and co-author Kevin J. Anderson.
She and her friends recommended a quick list of books for the Street Library, including authors like Vonnegut, Burroughs, and Emerson (The Pearls of Wisdom). Also Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky, The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, and The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi. KimKim said Brooklyn Bodhisattvas, A Book of Visions & Kabballistic Poetry (by Shulamit) really rocked her world. Drop me an email if you've been meaning to unload these very books to a street library.
