So, after some other user recommended it on the board, I finally did give Apathy and Other Small Victories by Paul Neilan a try.

Honestly, the user was spot on, the book is amazingly hilarious. Passing the recommendation on.

And while we're on the topic of comedy books, I read a while ago Notes From the Internet Apocalypse by the cracked writer Gladstone. 8/10 pretty good but I had followed the updates on cracked.com so I already knew the story. Nevertheless, still a recommendation.

I've been getting into reading a bit more \books.

I am currently reading Brave New World and I am going to start Plato the Republic.

Can I get any more books that pertain to philosophy and psychology?
I know BNW isn't technically about psychology.
But I want to lean towards books that pertain to more modern psychology (realistic) and philosophy.

If anyone has read any good books about those subjects, I would like your suggestions.
Thank you.

If you like speculative fiction like that, I recall really enjoying Farenheit 451 by Bradbury.

Just started reading The Stormlight Archives By our lord and savior Brandon Sanderson About 700 pages in. Pretty fucking amazing. Anyone else taken a look at it?

Does anyone know that book where it shows geographical cross sections of very significant human disasters around the world, such as Pompeii, Black Death and the Titanic? The pictures usually have many little people within it. It's a pretty big book. The cover is a picture of the Titanic, I think.


Thanks guise xoxo

If you like that, I'd suggest checking out The Usbourne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History, it's very similar and pretty rad.

I´ve read up to Book 3, then stopped, didnt like some of the events in Grave Peril. But I will read Summer Knight one day, i think. And the first two Books are awesome
#4799 to #4798 - numbernumbernumber (09/26/2014) [-]
I have read up to the 10th or 9th book i think, its a great series of books, i suggest it 10/10, the fights are cool, and just how the story is set and how the character reacts to situations would make it a good book even without the magic

So i have no idea where i should ask for any Visual novels recommendations so im wing'ing it and asking book's board(prolly post on VG/anime see how that goes) just recently played Unteralterbach a fun and funny VN,That has quite a bit (from my experience of VN's...) of interaction with the player and isn't just choices, theirs a few mini games and the cutsceens are pretty neat(and fappable if you roll like dat) it is a VN based around a german NEET who finds himself in quite a pickle,and that pickle would be a bunch of loli's and a town full of extreme protective adults, but thats all ill say, the game itself is very enjoyable if you can get passed the whole loli thing and has plenty of humor(both in german and english!)Also killer soundtrack but to the point, was hoping if anyone knows any VN's that are interactive with the player or generally Good (plot, character's,Minigames?,lengthy that has a rewarding outcome for time spent, and achivments ect.) PS Maja best girl, smoke dat first class grass m8ts.

I've played only one VN, but Katawa Shoujo is a fucking masterpiece. Try it right now if you haven't already.
User avatar #4827 to #4825 - antideadra ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
believe it or not Katawa Shoujo was my first VN lol i mean after iv seen its content used for memes/funny pics so often i was possessed to try it out, and it is a great VN enjoyed playing it. Its also the reason i wanted to start reading more VN's, and Unteralterbach sealed the deal for me with its creative playstyle/story it only saddens me a lot of VN's are in Japanese most of the time with no translations really wanted to try the yandere VN but it is only about a quarter or so translated iv really got to learn Japanese
User avatar #4834 to #4827 - oborawatabinost (09/28/2014) [-]
Well, at least you have good taste.

User avatar #4821 to #4817 - antideadra ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
it looks intense i envy you and respect you for the time it took to learn Japanese, i can only one day hope to achieve the same knowledge you have.
#4822 to #4821 - sendpicsofsocks (09/28/2014) [-]
There are times you feel like giving up, yes, but I've been motivated by many others and hopefully you'll find those who can do the same for you.

Also if you're wondering what it's like... gareblogs.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/english-translation-dies-irae-mercurius-reinhard-dialogue/

This crazy motherfucker translated portions of the game, so check it out if you're interested. Would recommend to anyone who wants to see what good writing looks like, albeit translated.

So has anyone here read the series Ryria revelations? I thought great light reading and really enjoyed how each of the books strung together.
User avatar #4830 to #4795 - ssheinrich (09/28/2014) [-]
what is it about?
User avatar #4839 to #4830 - frazn ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
So two guys who are pretty much as opposite as they get make a living stealing things and stuff for noble folk. So one day they get a job and are set up so it looks like they killed the king. They get rescued from the dungeon so that they could use their skills for a certain job. And I'd rather leave it there and not ruin anything.
The entire series has just about everything you could ask for: Thieves, knights, crazy people with master plans, civil wars, monsters, magic, pirates, fighting pits, etc.
It's nice since none of the characters are very perfect and it doesn't seem too fake. There are plenty of places where the author could improve, but overall the story is nice, easy to follow, and keeps you interested.

ill look it up at my local library, thanks ;)

I can't recommend anything by Ken Follett if it is written like "Fall of Giants" which is utterly atrocious prose wise. Other than that, good list.
User avatar #4819 to #4818 - pipeworks (09/28/2014) [-]
I've only read Pillars of the Earth, and I enjoyed it. Granted, the style was a bit awkward, but I found the characters and story engaging and fascinating enough to keep reading it.
