I Breathe to Read!
Books I have read and give a 7 or higher, so I guess one could say that these are my favorites.
Lying is something most people feel they can, and frequently do, find justification for. Sam Harris takes us through several scenarios to show just why it is better to tell the truth, or at least not lie. It is well written, as is usual, and expected, for Sam Harris. The book is one that will make you think critically about your own behavior and attitude toward lying, and hopefully will challenge you as well.
Lying by Sam Harris
With an exhaustive knowledge of popular culture and an almost effortless ability to spin brilliant prose out of unlikely subject matter, Chuck Klosterman attacks the entire spectrum of postmodern America: reality TV, Internet porn, Pamela Anderson, literary Jesus freaks, and the real difference between apples and oranges (of which there is none). And don't even get him started on his love life and the whole Harry-Met-Sally situation.

As seamstresses, the young sisters EmÍlia and Luzia dos Santos know how to cut, how to mend, and how to conceal. These are useful skills in the lawless backcountry of Brazil, where ruthless land barons called "colonels" feud with bands of outlaw cangaceiros, trapping innocent residents in the cross fire.

"You don't know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth." --MARK TWAIN, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 1
