I thought this would make a good thread to sort of counter-act the negative effects of the fucking month long drunk thread we have been challenged with. This made some rounds on the nerdy blogs of the internet some time back and I thought it might make a good thread. Focus: What are 5 books that changed you/your outlook on life the most? Don't just provide a list, explain each one; how and why did you change because of it. I'm always on the hunt for new interesting reading material and I've got winter break coming up so I'll have some time on my hands. I'll provide my list if the thread gets bumped.
