RE: The 5 best books you have read.
1) "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins

2) "Mysteries of Planet Earth" by Dr. Karl P.N. Shuker (I also had the privilege of meeting the man and conversing with him extensively on a number of occasions)

3) "The Unexplained" by Dr. Karl P.N. Shuker

4) "The Tell-Tale Heart and Other Writings" by Edgar Allan Poe

5) "Letter To a Christian Nation" by Sam Harris.

I've read many more, but this is my "desert island" list. When I read, I prefer to be taking in knowledge of something, rather than reading a fictional story, but Edgar Allan Poe is by far the greatest macabre-fiction writer, in my opinion (but, again, I haven't had much exposure). His use of poetry mixed with mystery and darkness creates an atmosphere that is captivating and beautiful. I still want to get "Quothe the Raven: Nevermore" tattooed somewhere on me but I can't seem to pick out a suitable spot xD

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto! Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!
