I have to say that I was kind of depressed by the list I just read.

Agreed, a very depressing list. No Philip K. Dick, William Burroughs or J.G. Ballard???

Make up your minds jack-offs… is the Tao Te Ching fiction or non-fiction? I don’t know if i could be less surprised by this list, except maybe by Walden. It’s good to see people still like to read 200 pages of “man grows lame-ass potatoes”. I guess.
