    dave pollard has an interesting collection of recommended books and he puts gould's full house at the top.
    I'm not a fan of SJ Gould but the book is interesting thus far.

    Whose translation? (Assuming you haven't learnt Sanskrit....)


    I'm onto another Brautigan collection. On a rip right now--seems like I've finally found a new fiction writer I wholly enjoy.

    Just finished reading The Fountainhead. I need some fluff now, so I am going to pick up book four of the Outlander series - Drums of Autumn.

    rivercrow, is Dreaming of Babylon the Richard Brautigan novel?

    This signature left intentionally blank.

    Really.

    Yes, it is.

    I am on a Brautigan rip. I have 4 more of his novels on the plate for the next couple weeks and two Brautigan memoirs (one by a friend, one by his daughter). When I was in Boone in May, I polished off _Trout Fishing_, _The Pill versus the Springhill Mine Disaster_, and _In Watermelon Sugar_.

    I also have a Glasser and a Hillman to read over the next week.

    "Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon" by Daniel Dennett... offering plausible explanation for a natural evolution of religion.

    Very very interesting so far, and I like his tone compared to Christopher Hitchens' typical antagonism -- he is much more leveled and "fair" in his approach to the topic. But I'm going to have to reread the center part again; right now, I totally follow what is being said, but I'm having trouble recalling what I've read.

And I started reading a mindless Xanth book by piers anthony, but I got bored quickly. And I'm re-reading Redwall, too.

    (I like to read many books concurrently, as you can see. I get too bored of one book if it takes longer than one session to read)
    Updated:

    -read speaker for the dead, xenocide and ender's shadow
    -haven't touched catch 22 for a few weeks because I haven't felt like giving it a second chance yet, it's started so boring
    -next up is the last book in the ender's game saga...after that I'll read the rest of the ender's shadow series

    I just read something that I read many years ago as a teenager, that I found very cheaply in a second hand store.

    The chronicles of the Jerusalem Man, by Gemmell.

    Nostalgic, for me.
