'Read Ayn Rand': World's Biggest Message?

Talk about nothing better to do with your Time !

And if you have never read Ayn Rand , her stuff is well worth the Time .

ABC News
Author Ayn Rand has millions of fans around the globe, but only one of them used the globe itself to say so.

Nick Newcomen drove 12,328 miles across the United States to "write" a message that can only be seen on Google Earth.

The mega-message "Read Ayn Rand" now stretches from coast to coast, with parts of the letters in 30 states.

According to the website World's Biggest Message, which documents Newcomen's high-tech journey, he used a Qstarz BT-Q1000X GPS tracking device as a "pen" to write his message as he drove. When he wanted to create the lines that would form letters, he turned the device on. In between letters, he turned it off.

Along with a description of Newcomen's trip, the World's Biggest Writing website includes a list of the top 10 reasons to read Ayn Rand.

According to the list, "Atlas Shrugged" is the "second most influential book for Americans today" after the Bible, said a joint survey conducted by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club.
