Finally decided to start talking about the books I read and the ideas I pick up from them. This particular post of course will keep changing as I remember / read more.

Illusions, Seagull, Curious Lives, BA4E – Richard Bach

The Prophet – Kahlil Gibran

5th Mountain, Pilgrimage, Veronika Decides to Die – Paolo Coelho

Elephant Song, River God, While the Lion feeds, Diamond Hunters, Warlock… the list goes on – Wilbur Smith

Tiger in the well, His Dark Materials, GMJ-SC – Philip Pullman (see will and lyra)

Mahabharata / Ramayana – C Rajagopalachari

Updated 2011:

Fountainhead – Ayn Rand. See resilience and youth

Essays on the Gita – Sri Aurobindo. Also Beyond Man.

Ulysees, Bear Island, TGON – How did I ever forget dear alistair!
