The most memorable (and slightly outside the five-year limit) is "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. That book has remained with me philosophically and has probably created a stronger counterpoint in my soci0-economic perspective than any other. "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle and "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz have been the most important spiritual works that I have read within the last five years, and "The Life of Pi" is the most salient fiction novel that I have read recently.
I fully agree with this policy. In fact, I purchase books very rarely. The Denver Public Library is my primary source for new reading material. I enjoy patronizing local book stores such as the Tattered Cover, but I do make purchases online (mostly from Amazon) as well.
My full name shows, but it is Christopher Fields, just in case.
I have included 2 photos; one is a very clear portrait and the other is a more artistic sepia photograph taken by my best friend (and an amateur photographer) in New Orleans in 2005.
I like to say that I'm an avid reader, but it happens in phases. I have not made book reading time on a daily basis for almost a year. I read articles online more than anything else as of Fall 2011. I hope to get back to books soon.
lots of eager readers
