Bumping. I haven't read anything for a while, but randomly remembered finding out that 'The Man Who Was Thursday' is apparantly out of copyright and free to download in e-book form.

You can download it here:
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/1695
OR
http://manybooks.net/titles/chestertetext99tmwht10.html



Anybody here read it?

I'm three chapters into The Man Who Was Thursday, it's really good so far. Great mix of humor and intrigue.

I'm not sure. I haven't read either of those and I'm only about 50 pages into The Road.

Quote
‘Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all’

Few artists’ letters are as self-revelatory as Vincent Van Gogh’s, and the selection included here, spanning the whole of his artistic career, sheds light on every facet of the life and work of this complex and tortured man. Engaging candidly and movingly with his religious struggles, his ill-fated search for love, his intense relationship with his brother Theo and his attacks of mental illness, the letters contradict the popular image of Van Gogh as an anti-social madman and a martyr to art, showing instead that he was capable of great emotional and spiritual depths. Above all, they stand as an intense personal narrative of artistic development and a unique account of the process of creation.

The letters are linked by explanatory biographical passages, revealing Van Gogh’s inner journey as well as the outer facts of his life. This edition includes the drawings that originally illustrated the letters.

‘If ever there was any doubt that Van Gogh’s letters belong beside those great classics of artistic self-revelation, Cellini’s autobiography and Delacroix’s journal, this excellent edition dispels it’

Since they're short stories, it makes for an easy read.

I really enjoyed Kevin J Anderson's other Star Wars novels, so I'll have to check that one out.

Yeah! That and the Jabba's Palace and Mos Isley collections are great reads. Kevin. J. A. wrote IG-88's story in the Bounty Hunters book and it definitely changes how you think of the character when watching the movies. I like the series as the stories take place during scenes from the films, so it adds depth to the movies and makes the stories easier to imagine.

 If you want to be a better person, exercise regularly, eat your fruit and vegetables, remember the saying 'treat others how you'd like to be treated' and masturbate on a regular basis.

Reading religious stuff wont help you... In fact most religious people I meet are the complete opposite. Horribly narrow minded, intolerant of others that do not share their opinions and often not that bright.

If you want to believe in a god go for it, Any god you like. But don't base to much of your life around being religious... It shouldn't take up more then a few minutes of your day. If you have to be god fearing to be a good person then you have some serious issues.

If you want guidance for living in this day and age an extremely dated glorified rule book that was written for a completely different time isn't going to be your best bet for living in the year 2010.

The bible like all religious documents of all religions was written by mortal men and as the bible says men are sinners, biased and are likely to twist what they write in the bible into what they think is right. Thats why taking any holy text as the word of god is a bit silly.

That’s just my 2 cent.
