  • An Atheist's Critique of the Bible: Old Testament By Brian Shuty.

    "An Atheist's Critique of the Bible: Old Testament" By Brian Shuty.The author has a fun style, and pulls no punches. I like it and recommend it. He's written a version of it critiquing the The New Testament and I'll likely get that one next.  Kindle version only $2.99 so it's cheap too.

  • Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire)

    So I just finished the fourth book in this series. Without a doubt, I think it is the greatest piece of Fantasy out there right now. I would describe it as the Lord of the Rings of our time and I think in the future people will regard George R.R. Martin with the same reverence that people have…

  • To Kindle or Not to Kindle

    I like paperless for almost all things, but for some reason, I still prefer real books. However, I think I'm coming close to breaking down and buying a Kindle. Does any have any strong opinions on the topic?

  • The Magic of Reality, Richard Dawkins

    I bought this book as an iphone app (£9.99 in the UK). It's an excellently made app which combines illustrations, animations and text. I'm up to chapter 8 of 12 at present and I'll save a full review until I've finished it. However, after a disappointing start, I must say it's picking up pace and…

  • "Arguably" by Christopher Hitchens

    Has anyone else read it besides me? I found it an intriguing anthology, it's everything I expected from the man. (This is where the discussion of it should take place, but as an aside I did write of a…
