I finished “A Universe From Nothing” (Lawrence M. Krauss) last week, and now I am reading “The Catcher in the Rye” (J. D. Salinger). Both are amazing books!

About halfway through Long Dark Road: Bill King and Murder in Jasper, Texas (R. Ainslie). So far it’s a well documented and interesting read.

Started “God and the Folly of Faith: The Incompatibility of Science and Religion” by Victor J. Stenger. Not sure what I will read next. Maybe “Moral Minds: How Nature Designed Our Universal Sense of Right and Wrong” by Marc D. Hauser, or something from Plato so I can expand my general knowledge (because that won’t do shit for my intellect).

The better question is, how did you end up on serious discussion?

Starship Troopers. Pretty good, but if you’ve seen the movie, that’s a completely different story.

That might explain a few things…

CM is short and easy except a bit of a historical slog in the middle. It gets all the attention for being edgy but you’re better off going direct to Capital.

Just finished reading “Discourse on Method” by René Descartes (goes straight downhill after the first half of Part III), and started up “Utilitarianism” by John Stuart Mill. Pretty interesting book, so far.

“Hate Crime” by Joyce King. I hope after this semester is over to go back to reading for actual enjoyment. I get so tired of placing fun reads to the side during school because there’s no time (or brain capacity) left for them.

Pssh, I don’t read books! Does a booklet for song lyrics count? If so, it’s the Save Rock and Roll album by Fall Out Boy!

Ha ha I just finished a book about reading books (Ironic right?) It is called “how to read slowly” good read talks about not just reading a book, but understanding and formulating ideas on the topic etc. I am also reading “The Bible”, “The fellowship of the ring.”, just finished the Hobbit again. had to re-read since there are new movies. Also working on “Systematic theology” and “The scarlet letter”. I also recently read “Sophie’s world” I would say I learned something but I didn’t I found this book both boring and it could not keep my attention. Seeing as I read around 3 paragraphs a min. and have ADHD books tend to have this problem. Although when a book can keep my attention and interest I can read 4-5 paragraphs a min. I finished this book in two weeks. I have to ask has anybody else read it? I would think so since most schools and such use it. Then again I am homeschooled (call me a Nerd, it would be a totally true statement) and yes “Asklar” the christmas tree manual is a book :)
Oh and another question to keep ya busy, who here saw “Man of steel” and was dissapointed though hopefull for the future sequels?

Ruins by Orson Scott Card. It’s the squeal to Pathfinder and an amazing book. If you like interesting questions about the nature of humans and machines, time travel, and moral responsibility but also want a good story then you should read it.

Isn’t that part of the Ender Game series. If so, I give my full mark of approval. I just read the book about Beans, the little genius.
