Warlock of Love (I only wish I could afford to buy a copy)

Every single book of every language in the world.

HaHaHa. I can't even remember my phone number! I really can't. I'll go with Shelton's answer. Most useful.

The Atheist's Bible - a real thing - edited by Joan Konner
It is a collection of quotes and irreverent thoughts, such as:

Man create the gods after their own image, not only with regard to their form but with regard to their mode of life. Aristotle

A short one

The experts guide of how to avoid hard knocks.

A notebook because I like to read between the lines.

The Grapes of Wrath. That book is a fun read (to an audience) Last time I read a chapter had them (room full of teachers) all deeply moved.

No, no, that's not what books are for.

2

Honestly, the bible, more ammo for the "holy rollers"

yeah...

"The Unsettling of America"

"The Complete Works of Shakespeare," that my parents gave me for Christmas when I was 16. I still have the book.

It would be fun to use quotes from Shakespeare in conversations:

“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

A Common Faith, by John Dewey. It led to my deconversion.

The 23 volume Oxford English Dictionary would be nice...

I like that. I was thinking something in law. But too many differences everywhere.

I would memorize a quality thesaurus, so that my descriptions are never boring again.

I've pretty much memorized every book I've ever read.
But I still re-read many of them because even though I remember the words, I still get some different meaning from them.

Do you have an eidetic memory? I'm jealous if so.

@pashaonenine Most of the time, yes. but due to my mental disorder I sometimes don't.
But what I wouldn't give to be able to forget everything.
How cool would it be to read "A brief history of time" again for the first time, or watch Star wars for the first time, again.

If there was a pill for that, I would OD on the stuff. 🙂
