That sounds like a fun read.

 

Ugh..I need to read faster. To many books jumping on my list.

I just read

 

"The Lucky Arrow" by Karlmir Stonewain
http://www.lotrfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?sid=10768

It's a very good LOTR fan fiction!

Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. Great book. A must read for any freethinker.

I got my book from Amazon Today -- here's the website for the book http://www.thegodvirus.net/ The God Virus:How Religion Infects Our Lives and CultureBy Darrel W. Ray, Ed.D. So excited -- can't wait to read it.

and now this LOTR fan fiction story

 

Green Fletching by Karlmir Stonewain

http://www.lotrfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?sid=10845

Arguably by Christopher Hitchens
The Stanley Kubrick Archive

reading "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand at the moment

Interestingly enough I don't read a lot of books about atheism or religion. I am an atheist and I don't need convincing so I tend to ignore them. I read a lot of science and that takes care of religion as far as I am concerned.

I just finished The Demon Haunted World by Sagan.

Currently reading:

Hacking: The art of exploitation

Joomla Bible (for work)

The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why violence has declined by Pinker.

MYSQL in a Nutshell.

The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics: A math-free exploration of the science that made our modern world.

I think I still enjoy the atheism books because of the things I learn.

 

How do you like the Hacking book?  Have you ever read "The Cuckoo's Egg"?  If not, it's a must read for the hacker types. 

 

MYSQL, off topic but I didn't like the little exposure I had to MySQL.  Seemed buggy.But on the other hand, SQL Server isn't free.

The hacking book seems pretty good so far. It is very code intensive after the first chapter. I haven't gotten very far in the book yet. I just got it on Thursday, but so far so good. I need to boot the live CD that came with the book and see if there is anything useful besides the codes. I use Backtrack for just about everything.

Yeah. MySQL takes some getting used to, but its the price for living in the open source world. I have a partition for Windows, but I haven't booted into it in about three weeks.
