Wondering if anyone has read a bit of John Burroughs (Accepting the Universe; Light of Day; Leaf and Tendril, etc.)? I'm teaching a course in environmental ethics and find Burroughs a useful bridge for theists to (cautiously) cross over to non-theism. His scientific/naturalistic/philosophical influence on Muir, Roosevelt and classrooms full of schoolchildren warrants his "resurrection!"

@Dallas: TSD is pretty economic, but they way Klein writes she makes it easy to follow. It definitely is giving me a different perspective on America's involvement in the world. Especially about things that are not covered in the news or that are just so filtered that the original content is virtually lost.

Dorothy Fontana, story editor for Star Trek, once told me that screenwriters envy prose writers for that. I can write 3 words: "The world ended." To do that on screen costs millions of dollars.

@IMAOZI: SF and fantasy readers are also welcome at the Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists group.

I usually read Sci-Fi but I did read The DaVinci Code and saw the movie. I was disappointed with the movie though. My imagination is always better that the directors.

I am reading "Angels & Demons"

I'm currently reading The Shock Doctrine (The Rise of Disaster Capitalism) By: Naomi Klein. This book is intense.

The library at my University has all of Dawkins' work. Great stuff. I actually listened to The Audio Book of the God Delusion which was cool since it's was read by both Richard and his wife.

I just started reading "Atheist Universe" by David Mills. It is a great intro into Atheism and a very easy read.

Books, I can't say enough about them. I can never have to many and I always have one with me. I've managed to make the book trade the focus of my Masters Degree research. I enjoy a drink like most folks, but books are my drug of choice

I invite any reviews by freethinkers of my book Life After Faith. I am considering publishing through Create Space since publishers are not calling me (smile). Currently reading Carl Sagan's classic, "The Varieties of Scientific Experience." "There is an enormous amount we do not know; there is a tiny amount that we do. But what we do understand brings us face to face with an awesome cosmos that is simply different from the cosmos of our pious ancestors."
