Which is better?

/lit/-tier manga? I'd like to wait on reading heavier novels for when I actually have enough time to appreciate them fully, something I lack at the moment. So, give me your recs.
I wanna read a fuckin' book, give me a suggestion.
I have to write a descriptive essay for tomorrow.
I think it turned out well.
Thoughts and criticism welcome
A man I once knew my lord, a name that echoed boldly far after his passing, Alexander. This man like all great kings knew what laid in the hearts of his men for he was regarded as a king like none other.

Hi /lit/. First time poster. I checked the wiki and couldn't seem to find anything.
Can you recommend which Alan Watts book to buy for my girlfriend? She's not necessarily interested in Buddhism itself, but she is interested in mindfulness, spirituality, happiness and yoga.
The Way Of Zen seems to be one of the definitive Watts books. Would you recommend something different? Thanks in advance.
Haven't actually read it yet (or any Alan Watts for that matter), but you might look at This is It. I would also recommend Gary Snyder, especially if she has a particular interest in nature and it's relationship with spirituality. I would specifically recommend The Practice of the Wild and/or Turtle Island.
What is your favourite book? Mine is Endless Fun by Dane Forster Walden.
I like "Curvature of Chromatic Arches" by Tomás Pinecone.
Is this book relatable to anyone else? I'm assuming it is because it's one of the most popular books in Japan.
Do you think Japanese normies actually appreciate good literature? I've heard Murakami is ridiculously popular over there. I can't imagine any respectable Western author having that level of popularity with the general poupulation.

Is this book overrated? What are some overrated "classics"
>What are some overrated "classics"
I've basically only read contemporary literature and modernism. What books should I start with to stop being such a pleb? Keep in mind the only cultured authors I've extensively read are Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and T.S. Eliot?

How do you react? Pic unrelated.
I'm writing a short story about an ambiguous unorganized political movement (like occupy Wall St and all that shit) that inspires a beverage company who releases a tv spot vaguely oriented to the demonstrations. Stuff happens and, in order to keep its target, the beverage company ends up becoming a vanguard party.
What does /lit/ think?
It should be a satire on the stupidity of identity politics and how capitalism tricks stupid leftists into thinking they actually changed things by consuming products
