*Note: The philosophers reflected in this list are not necessarily my favorites as philosophers, or my choices of those I consider most influential to me, but a combination of their influence on my thought with the pleasure of reading them. For example, while Gottlob Frege, G.E. Moore, Daniel Dennett, and many others are large influence on me, their works can be a little difficult. I include the works of authors like Wittgenstein because I like them both as philosophers and authors. The same goes for the scientists.
He's known for "Norwegian Wood" but I like his writing because of "On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning"
Because of "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" and the sequals "Dearly Devoted Dexter" and "Dexter In The Dark" etc.
It's not that I have a.d.d. I just can't visualize imagery and sound through text, so it's difficult to read such. James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson and Charles Darwins literary is kind of easy to read though, I don't know why. And yes, I have to read it in English, I can't stand Norwegian.
