Recommend me books about spirituality.
What are some good books about Success? I am chasing my dream of becoming a Winner and a World Class Apex Predator. I want the whole package; Wealth, Health, Love, Power and Happiness.
The Law of Success in 16 Lessons by Napoleon Hills
The work was originally commissioned at the request of Andrew Carnegie...
...and was based upon interviews of over 100 American millionaires across nearly 20 years, including such self-made industrial giants as Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell, and Thomas Edison.
Napoleon Hill Laws of Success
>did you ever have the feeling there's a zamp in the lamp?
what did he mean by this?
It's probably a metaphor for the gooks and their crooks that he hated here and there and everywhere! The yellow men who bombed Hawaii.
"Two atom bombs weren't enough!" He cried.
And we should have listened anyway, for now we have the disease of anime.
So if you hear about zamps in lamps, he just might mean there's a beady eyed Jap in your camp.
Reminder that The Sneetches is about an arch-capitalist taking advantage of racial tensions for his own benefit
anyone interested in the illustrated version of Neverwhere?
>The TV series is shit.
yeah it pretty much was
there was a good radio adaptation of it a couple of years ago tho. it had christopher lee as the earl of earl's court.
So /lit/ what is your opinion of this book? I've read it numerous times and it's definitely one of my favorites.
I've read a bit of MIchael Shaara and this is his best book by far. I don't know what the /lit/ consensus is but as a History major I really enjoyed it. It's not a high level lit book but it is somewhat historical and a better read than a lot of other shit out there.
Man is this book ever boring. I got to page 25 or something
after she ditches the party to hang out with that guy that her friend she was out with for the night took her friend and she just fell asleep on the floor. Fucking, do I just suck at reading or something? I literally can't will myself to read another paragraph of this book, I just can't do it.
What the fuck is this guys deal with grammar
> I don't understand grammar
He writers sentences like
It's not a surprise that Saturday Night Live [blah]...premiered next fall. On television.
That full stop between next fall and on television, why is it there? WHY NOT A COMMA FOR THE EFFECT HE WANTS OR JUST NOTHING. Have I deeply misunderstood grammar and sentence structure my whole life?
I saw it loads in IJ but just always thought "weird future grammar or some shit, cool"
In order to be le quirky postmodern genius you have to have quirky incorrect grammar!
Pynchon does This to Certain Nouns quite improperly.
McCarthy doesnt put apostrophes in his conjunctions and I wonder why he doesnt use question marks.
I'm not wholly against it and in many cases it's to the benefit of the novel, but my inner anal-sadistic 10th grade English teacher wants me to let them experience my pain and humiliation.
But this is taken from one of his essays! Surely one can't be such le quirky durk that one literally writes ungrammatical sentences outside of fiction. I'm wondering if it's just another "Don't start a sentence with a conjunction" type myth?
So I've never read a collection of poetry before and I am seeking to get into poetry. This is a good place to start? I've checked the wiki and have no idea where to begin. Recommendations for books and authors to start from would be appreciated. Thanks.

/lit/mus test. There was a recent thread regarding a Plato reading group. How many of you guys would be up for a Kant one?
Critique of Pure Reason. No girls/empiricists allowed.
It'd be standard procedure; using burner emails or whatever.
I've read/studied it before, just curious to see if there are any /lit/ friendos to discuss it with.
I can help if you want.

;_; and people wonder why schopenhauer was a dick
What the hell did I just read?
Any thoughts on Atlas Shrugged? I have been told it's a must read by many people.
The atheist doesn't claim to be able to prove God doesn't exist, the atheist chooses not to believe in a hypothesis for which there is no evidence.
A theist on the other hand claims to know there is a God - a much stronger claim than the atheistic position.
Hey /lit/, please recommend me some good novels that feature a close-knit circle of young adult friends. Preferably urban setting but honestly I'll go for whatever, I just need some friendship feels rn.
