Current Reads

Sorry, kiddos, but I’m taking a day off from the ‘30 Days of Truth‘ challenge.  I didn’t sleep too well last night, thanks to the wife and the dog, and I’m amazingly tired at the moment.  If I wake up to a substantial degree at all during the night, it’s hard for me to fall back asleep.  My mind’s like a light switch, which is cool, but can be very annoying in times like that.  Anyway, I thought I’d post a few books that I’m reading.  Click on each picture to visit the page for each title.

I tend to do that.  There are other books I’ve yet to finish.  I’m sure I will at some point, but it’s hard for me to pick up a new book without starting it.  I definitely hope to finish ‘Paint It Black’ and ‘God’s Problem’ before beginning anything else. 😉  The other really isn’t the type of book one necessarily has to sit down and read cover to cover.

What are you reading?

Stay tuned tomorrow for another ‘30 Days of Truth‘ post.  Now, time for bed methinks…

Oh, one other thing…I received a packet in the mail yesterday (that I’d requested) from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.  You can order yours here.  It included a complimentary copy of their newspaper, Freethought Today.  The annual membership dues are $40 at the Individual level, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s well worth it for the hate mail alone!  They publish a good selection of crank mail from Gawd-fearin’ Chistyuns – spelling, grammar, and punctuation uncorrected. 😉

My favorite (responding to FFRF’s fight to stop illegal school-led prayer in Tennessee:

“You need to keep your non-believing nose out of my kid’s schools and mind your own damn business.” – Christian Mom Sick of Your Bullshit

Yes, seriously.  Religionists truly are hilarious, yet frightening, people.

  1. I am currently reading Pinker’s “The stuff of thought” about semantics. And a Berlitz course of the Russian language (my Langenscheid course is still in Germany and postage would be too expensive).
