“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

We ask that each member shelve at least 2 exceptional books that they've read but may shelve as many as they want.
I spend a lot of time trying to find those EXCEPTIONAL books and have to wade through many poorly written books to find them. If you have this same problem then join our group and add to our group bookshelf ONLY the books you believe are EXCEPTIONAL.
This group can encompass any genre of book, fiction or non fiction. As long as you believe that it is a book someone MUST read before they die.
This group is not about getting a lot of members, it's about getting a lot of great books shelved on our bookshelf. That way when your feeling in a reading slump, you can come to this group and find an exceptional book listed on our bookshelf that you know will be written well and have a great story line to it.
If you put a book on our bookshelf, please create a shelf for it so other people can easily pick out a book from the particular genre they like.
Note to author's: You are all more than welcome to join our group but please do not shelve your own books. You probably wrote a great book but let others say its great. Please only shelve the books (other than yours) that you think are exceptional books. ...more
