Okay, The Threadkiller has returned to revive this thread, like Isis bringing the wooden phallus to Osiris.....
I have read in the last couple weeks:

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?

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.Who rises in the morning, looks in the mirror and says, "I think I will do something stupid today?" -- James HollisIf people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done. -- Ludwig WittgensteinWhaling is illegal in Oklahoma.

"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.
Cafe, where did you get this?!!

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

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.
