No, Dallas, but I'm ordering it from Amazon right now. Can't beat $9.99. Thanks for the tip.

Hello atheists who love to read! I read mostly general fiction, I have really been into the classics lately (I recently read Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, and Tale of Two Cities) I just finished reading Stiff by Mary Roach. It was a very good book, easy to read, funny and informative and I just started The Color Purple by Alice Walker! And I just got a new book shelf and in the water cooler forum I have a post requesting suggestions on where I should put my bibles if anyone has suggestions!

ItsJustMatt: I read that book in Jr. High some thirty+ years ago. I believe its well known and publicised not only for its human rights history, but its challange to personal biases in ways that your average student never faces.

There's a very nice review of my book Polly! here (in addition to the ones within the Nexus Book Club itself). I might point out that the site's "Headmaster," Frank Vevle, lives in Norway, so his English might appear a bit broken--but it's infinitely better than my Norse, so I'm not criticizing.

BTW, if you like reading or writing reviews of SFF, you might consider joining his site and becoming a member of his community.

I admire all you heavy readers, but as I find the years passing I am more into the themes that get the blood racing, action, adventure etc. such as James Patterson and James Rollins. Cliff hangers at the end of each chapter, surprise villains and mysterious objects to find and explore. I find I set aside less and less time to ponder the deep hidden meanings of anything except whats for lunch. Still....thanks for the site where I can jot a note or two now and then.

Came across this interesting and disturbing adventure/book

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, I highly recommend David Reynold's John Brown: Abolitionist. Here's a short JB video by the "Nature Chaplain."

I first heard of Frank Scheffer back during the summer when Dr. Tiller was killed. He was on MSNBC. He and his father help found the Religious Right. He talked about the killing of Tiller. He said that there were those evangelicals who were celebrating big time the killing of Tiller.
I found this man interesting considering I was once a member of the Republican Party when it was still the Republican Party and the religious crazies came in.
Well I got the book last week. Boy, you talk about someone who has exposed these people for what they really are and has suffered the price for it.
And the man has suffered.
Honestly I'm glad I'm an atheist. Living without fear or hysteria.
As Schaeffer says, this country has become the "United States of Hysteria."
It's not a book you can just sit down and read. It's one you read a bit, put it down, and come back to later. In a way, it's just too much to take in with one reading.
I suggest you give it a thumbing through.

I'm currently reading...why, yes, I do read... "Crazy for God"
Had anyone read or reading that book?
