Living Mirrors

Just like all art, books reflect us. They reflect who we are, they reflect the world, and they reflect our true nature. They are living tomes which convey a beauty and a connection that cannot die. I read Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Classic Lit, Horror, and Non-Fiction.

Spoiler Warning: He's probably joking.

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! - Richard P. Feynman

During my first semester of college I didn't have a car, so I had to wait around campus for my sister to take me home. For this reason, I spent a lot of time in the library and one of the books that I found was the late Richard Feynman's autobiography. Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman! It was entertaining, an easy read, well written and a very interesting look at a the life of a genius. I was disappointed with how little there was about why he won the nobel prize, but Feynman gives his unique perspective on life in an entertaining way, and I highly recommend the read to anyone who is interested in biographies.
