December 12, Friday afternoon -- Reading Ayn Rand

Reading Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. Before this he was reading America: The Last Best Hope, by William Bennett and biographies of Ron Paul and Jesse Ventura.

School had destroyed his natural desire to read and it was only after figuring out his own interests and surfing the internet for book titles, that he was able to find subjects he was interested in, and began reading nonfiction.

His car just got stolen and now he has time to read on the bus. This book, which his housemate recommended, is the first book of fiction that he has read on his own, without having been assigned in school. He is loving it. Flabbergasted, really, by how great it is to read fiction.

His favorite book of all time -- The Book of Mormon.
