Besides the Bible, Sahara by Clive Cussler. It's an amazing book that takes place in Mali of 1996, has diseases, cannibals, a miniature war, and confederate ships. And lots of mystery. It's totally awesome.

I'm running out the back door to hang the laundry on the line; but, I wanted to stop and say, Taise~
Consistency is always the best policy. I knew you were going to say The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. The Goldfinch was a 50/50 for me. :) I'm glad I could count on you for not swaying from the books you adore. :)

I've not read a single one of those.....I think it would hurt my birdy brain.....

Merlin, I can't even get to my line. The snow is up to my knees. I have a trail to the bird feeders though. It's minus 24. Ugh.
I didn't care about the underlying philosophies behind The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged. I was looking for great stories. The Fountainhead changed the way I look at buildings. I liked The Goldfinch, but skipped over the pontificating at the end. Not a good ending, but the characters were so interesting.

@Ynp, your birdie brain would love these books. In fact, your birdie brain could write books like these.

The best subject I had read when I was 12 years old was on the power and ability of the human mind. As a kid I could not buy that kind of book so I borrowed it from the public library. And by learning from the book I am today a Hypnotherapist residing in Baja Ca. 3-3-14. Interested view my profile. Mister Bruce (educator)

IF you want truth about human history & true hope for mankind to live forever on the paradise earth, read ....

THE HOLY BIBLE because by far most other books have a weariness to them:

(Ecclesiastes 12:12) “12?As regards anything besides these, my son, take a warning: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion [to them] is wearisome to the flesh.”

*** w12 6/15 p. 27 “They Were Borne Along by Holy Spirit” ***
KEEP EVIDENCE IN SIGHT
8 Evidence abounds that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Bible acquaints us with God like no other book of religion. For example, the writings of Hinduism include books of Vedic hymns, a collection of ritualistic commentaries about these hymns, philosophical treatises called the Upanishads, and the epic stories known as Ramayana and the Mahabharata. ....

more.....

.....The Bhagavad Gita, a book containing moral instructions, is a part of the Mahabharata. Of Buddhism’s Tipitaka (Three Collections), one volume is mainly about rules and regulations of community living for monks and nuns. Another volume deals mostly with Buddhist doctrines. A third volume is a record of the oral teachings of the Buddha. Buddha himself did not claim to be a god, and he said very little about God. The texts of Confucianism are an amalgam of records of events, moral rules, magical formulas, and songs. Granted, the holy book of Islam teaches belief in one God and presents him as God who is omniscient and has foreknowledge, but it does not even reveal the name of God, Jehovah, which appears thousands of times in the Bible"

*** jd chap. 1 p. 5 par. 3 Jehovah’s Messages for Then and Now
English author Charles Dickens noted about the Bible: “It is the best book that ever was or will be known in the world . . . because it teaches you the best lessons by which any human creature . . . can possibly be guided.”

*** g96 2/8 p. 9 You Can Trust God ***
Renowned scientist Sir Isaac Newton said: “I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever.” No forgery like the Hitler “diaries” here! And how does the Bible compare with other ancient writings? The Bible From the Beginning says: “In the number of ancient MSS. [manuscripts] attesting a writing, and in the number of years that had elapsed between the original and the attesting MSS., the Bible enjoys a decided advantage over classical writings [those of Homer, Plato, and others]. . . . Altogether classical MSS. are but a handful compared with Biblical. No ancient book is so well attested as the Bible.” Everything about the Bible points to its being completely genuine.
