Hi everyone and welcome to the book club!

Basically, the idea is this:

Some atheist-related book will be chosen, and every week a certain amount of said book "assigned." A week later, discussion for that section will be opened in a discussion thread on the group site. At the same time, a new section will be chosen for the next week.

This is still in the preliminaries here, but the first book should get picked shortly and things will get underway. If you have any suggestions for a book, or for the group in general, feel free to post them.

How about Nietzsche? Sartre?...Maher?
Sounds like a great idea! I look forward to hearing what book is picked. There are so many great books out there so here are just a few of my suggestions: The God Delusion, End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, God is not Great, Atheist Universe, and Portable Atheist. I can't wait to begin reading and discussing with everyone.
yeah, these books all sound like pretty good starting points. I have read a couple of them.

As @Rohan said, though, I might not always be able to get my hands on said book or have the time to read it. But I'd still be happy to partake in any discussion. I like the general premise of this group :)
Godless by Dan Barker, an evangelical preacher for over a dozen years suddenly becomes one of Americas leading atheist
I was just reading about that book, it really does sound like a good one.
I'm all for reading books promoting christianity and attempting to debunk atheism. In fact, I'm about to start reading a book my father lent me, called "A Case for Faith". I don't remember the author, but he seems to think it has all the answers I'm looking for .. I'll let you know all know if it's worth a read.
Here is an idea if you want to pass a book along, don't know if you know about book mooch.

My sister is a huge reader and she used book mooch to get books she wants to read and then passes them on to the next person.
"BookMooch lets you give away books you no longer need in exchange for books you really want. "

I suggest the Demon Haunted World, by Carl Sagan. I heard it's a good book to start off your collection with. Also, because I already have it and yet to crack it open :)
Damn Nelson, you're so resourceful its almost scary.

And I second... er third... um... Great idea Sniz!
Atheism: The Case Against God by George H. Smith. Greatest book on atheism ever written by a non-academic, in my opinion. Or, at the very least, it's my favorite from my personal collection.
heh. I should be writing these down. I think I have my to-read list for the next few months ;)
sounds great!! can't wait to hear what gets picked.
