I think it's great you're an actor. I really love theater myself and try to visit the theatre every once in a while ("Faust I" is one of my personal favourites). I never acted though. I like the idea, I just never got the chance to really try it. The acting club at my school was bad - to say the least - so I quit after a week or so. I currently hope I'll get a new chance once I'm attending university (which means leaving this darn hicksville and its petty inhabitants behind).
I guess you at least skimmed over my profile so there should be plenty of literature to talk about. ;)
Mind you, the list is incomplete as my book shelf takes over half of my room, plus I only listed classics and political works.
Personally, I'd be interested in your position as atheist in your environment. I really don't know much about the regional situation of atheists, only that there exists such a thing they call "Bible Belt" and the name says it all.
Also if you like to, we should maybe relocate the conversation to PMs. ;)
