"Quantum Psychology" by Robert Anton Wilson

"Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell
Im reading "The Year of Living Biblically" by A.J. Jacobs, (so far its quite funny)

I just finished "The Science of Discworld" by Terry Pratchett and Im about to start reading "Wee Free Men". A friend of mine loaned me a few Discworld novels last year and now Im addicted.
Yesterday I finished reading "God: The Failed Hypothesis" by Victor Stenger. Today, I started reading The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom. I am also simultaneously reading Think by Blackburn and Human Rights, which is a Greenhaven Press publication; Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman is on the back burner.

Other books I've read within the past 2 years:

Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely

I also read Starship Troopers (again) by Robert A. Heinlein, for like the 5th time....you know, just to break the monotony of non-fiction literature.
What did you think about Dinesh D'Souza? He is coming to debate Hitchens at the University of Central Florida Sept 17 (I have tickets!)

His body of works looks...interesting (yes, euphemism)
Dialogue with a Christian Proselytizer by Todd Allen Gates
God vs. the Bible by John Armstrong
I wish George R.R. Martin would finish his A Song of Ice and Fire series. IMHO, the 1st 4 books are the best fantasy books ever.
The Southern vampire series. I'm up to book three.
While it has a lot of supernatural elements i find rather lame,I'm enjoying the series quite a bit.


I was actually thinking of reading that, but the tv show (True Blood) is so awful, I just can't get myself to read it! I'm going with Patricia Briggs right now.
"Jesus, Interrupted" by Bart D. Ehrman. Fantastic!
Being Digital. nick negroponte mit
feet to the fire, media after 911_
american theocracy, Regan's strategist spills the beans, historical talk too

axisofjustice.org has a great list, here:

Currently I am reading a collection of Bertrand Russell essays, 'Why I Am Not a Christian and other essays on religion and related subjects", edited by Paul Edwards, 1957
