I'm reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon ( for the 3rd time). I think these books are awesome. I can't wait for her next book to come out, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood in early 2013. Which I have been impatiantly waiting for for since 2009.

Support a fellow heathen and AN member and buy this book. It is hilarious, insightful, and relatively easy on the wallet.

Just a reminder to anyone and everyone that my latest book, The Little Book of Unholy Questions, is available in paperback and Kindle formats. Check it out, it has unanimously great reviews and is a comprehensive cumulative case against an omni-God set out through 501 questions asked directly to God.

Cheers

hi every one on this book reading nexus site...

I am to be in the intenet cafe for just a while...

i am a self taught Afrikan freethinker (refers my profile)...an autodidact book reading-"phile"...

i would hereby kindly wish to ask any generous freethinker to kindly either borrow/lent/give/grant me this book by giant Bertrand Russell, a history of western philosophy...

I have in mind the vision of writing philosophy in my swahili language just to get the general populace get introduced to it...

as of now it is the book in my list that i badly (or rather goodly?) need...

it saddens me much much to know/notice/realize that prophets Jesus Christ, and Mohamed are well known here, while Socrates the master icon of the iconoclast to start with, is not, not at all..!

Imagine that a paradox...it is my dream wish to intervene and may be change, to get philosophy (hereby freethinking) known too...

it is because there is lack of access (almost non existence)of such same here...and that's why i would kindly rely on your generosity...

i will comply to any terms of the would be lender of same...

humbly yours Nsajigwa in Tanzanian east Afrika

Hey all, I'm currently reading Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All by David Fitzgerald. Loving it so far. I'm hoping that one day I can put what I'm learnming from this book to good use and deconvert some of my religious friends.

Hi everyone!

I am the communications associate for the American Humanist Association and my job includes duties with Humanist Press, our publishing house and a place where we are placing a renewed focus.

As part of the effort, we have several new titles lined up and I am interested in hearing from any of you who do regular book reviews. If Humanist Press books appeal to you, please contact me directly with a sentence about where you normally post your reviews. My email is bmagee@americanhumanist.org

Thanks!

Cool - I will check those book recommendations out!
Comment by Ian Mason on January 22, 2012 at 1:50pm

Another plug for Will Self. This time "Liver", 4 novellas of varying length about that particular organ and touching on drink, drugs, asissted suicide, miracle cures and a modern Prometheus. Read in under 24 hours!

Just read Brendan Behan's "Borstal Boy". Lots of sentimental Irish nationalism and Catholicism but also a description of a suprisingly enlightened juvenile penal system in the years 1941-43. Enjoyed it and can recommend it.
