I recommend them all, very good!
I concur on the first.

I just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and still reading the one by Garrett >_>

I have "the Emperor's New Mind" and have not yet started it. I like Penrose's take on things, though.

Looks like a nice pickup read for a long flight.
It would definitely serve well for that. It's a pretty entertaining read with some food for thought mixed in.

I just bought a volume of all of Flannery O'Connor's short stories. Anyone ever read any of them? I definitely recommend them for good, shorter reads.

I picked up a volume containing four of Wells' novels from the library...my foray into SF.

I'm reading...

The China Fantasy by some guy that's coming off as really bias.

Tipping point by Malcolm Gladwell
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
On War by Carl Von Clausewitz
A book of five rings by Miyamoto Musashi
 
The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb: Gar Alperovitz

The revisionists bible, so awe inspiringly detailed: with accounts from the men who made the decisions, so achingly well researched that it's impossible to doubt it's credibility in what was the US's darkest hour.

Why they really did it, not why you think they did. If you believe, like I did, that it was to save lives then prepare for a real shock.

And Shield of Thunder: David Gemmel, the story of Troy in 3 books.

Totally gripping, and for a fantasy impressively researched, plus it was his last work before he died. :frown:

I’m currently pawing my way through A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M Miller.

I’ve enjoyed it so far. Indeed, I’m a little giddy with anticipation concerning Brother Francis’ discovery.

Here’s a review

I recently started Wayne Grudem's "Systematic Theology." I'm also (sort of) reading Dante's Paradise...when I have time. This is, of course, pretty typical of my rather narrow set of reading interests which includes religious books, my physics textbooks, and ancient literature. In that order.

-Guns, germs and steel (actually just finished this one)
-The wealth and poverty of nations

Both (on a different level) about how the economic differences between nations came to be. Both very good! Oh, and as a good holiday book I just started 'Ali and Nino'.

Also, I'm in the middle of Catch-22 right now. I never read it, but I'm glad I started! The book is hilarious!:rofl:

Just finished The God Delusion. Dawkins comes off bitter, but it is a good book.

Currently reading Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. Disturbing, but interesting.
