Just a reminder to anyone and everyone that my latest book, The Little Book of Unholy Questions, is available in paperback and Kindle formats. Check it out, it has unanimously great reviews and is a comprehensive cumulative case against an omni-God set out through 501 questions asked directly to God.

hi every one on this book reading nexus site...

I am to be in the intenet cafe for just a while...

i am a self taught Afrikan freethinker (refers my profile) autodidact book reading-"phile"...

i would hereby kindly wish to ask any generous freethinker to kindly either borrow/lent/give/grant me this book by giant Bertrand Russell, a history of western philosophy...

I have in mind the vision of writing philosophy in my swahili language just to get the general populace get introduced to it...

as of now it is the book in my list that i badly (or rather goodly?) need...

it saddens me much much to know/notice/realize that prophets Jesus Christ, and Mohamed are well known here, while Socrates the master icon of the iconoclast to start with, is not, not at all..!

Imagine that a is my dream wish to intervene and may be change, to get philosophy (hereby freethinking) known too...

it is because there is lack of access (almost non existence)of such same here...and that's why i would kindly rely on your generosity...

i will comply to any terms of the would be lender of same...

humbly yours Nsajigwa in Tanzanian east Afrika

Hey all, I'm currently reading Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All by David Fitzgerald. Loving it so far. I'm hoping that one day I can put what I'm learnming from this book to good use and deconvert some of my religious friends.

Hi everyone!

I am the communications associate for the American Humanist Association and my job includes duties with Humanist Press, our publishing house and a place where we are placing a renewed focus.

As part of the effort, we have several new titles lined up and I am interested in hearing from any of you who do regular book reviews. If Humanist Press books appeal to you, please contact me directly with a sentence about where you normally post your reviews. My email is

Cool - I will check those book recommendations out!

Another plug for Will Self. This time "Liver", 4 novellas of varying length about that particular organ and touching on drink, drugs, asissted suicide, miracle cures and a modern Prometheus. Read in under 24 hours!

Just read Brendan Behan's "Borstal Boy". Lots of sentimental Irish nationalism and Catholicism but also a description of a suprisingly enlightened juvenile penal system in the years 1941-43. Enjoyed it and can recommend it.

I'll put those on my wish list at Amazon - they sound really interesting!
Comment by Stephen Goldin on December 15, 2011 at 10:48pm

I'd like to recommend to everyone Robert J. Sawyer's outstanding WWW Trilogy--WWW: Wake, WWW: Watch, and WWW: Wonder. (It's easy to remember which one to read when--just read them in alphabetical order.) The books are well-written and almost impossible to put down. Not only are the main characters interesting, they're people you'd like to have as friends. They express values that I believe are common to just about all non-theists. The first book was a Hugo nominee last year. The second book won the Prix Aurora this year for best English-language Canadian SF novel. And I'm confident the third book will do just as well. It's some of the best science fiction I've read in a long time.
