    I'm currently rereading Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams, and also dipping into Myths & Legends of the Celtic Race by TW Rolleston (free on Kindle)

    The Faith Healers - James Randi

    Actually read it before but rereading it makes me shake my head at the criminality some of the US Churches are allowed to get away with because they hide behind religion

    I'm reading "Notorious - The Life and Fights of Conor Mcgregor" by Jack Slack. Good so far. Nice little asides into technique, stances, combative concepts, etc.

    Reading Seige by Tad Williams, Scott Rodell's translation of Cheng Zong You's Long Sabre Techniques Anthology and The 360 Degree leader as I have a job interview next week.
    Inspired by my earlier reading on Celtic mythology I binged on a couple of Slaine trade collections too.

    Fareed Zakaria's The Post-American World. Seems blindingly optimistic and outdated and only nine years old at that. Sigh :[

    "The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy From the Greeks to the Renaissance" by Anthony Gottlieb.

    Have to balance the "Percy Jackson" series that I was reading earlier in the year. :D

    LOL! Maybe in a few years! I've actually been collecting, from used books stores, a set of philosophy books that in total would equate to more than a bachelor degree in philosophy. As of this week I pretty much have it now. My intent is to read them in chronological order, and thus effectively homeschool myself. :D :D

    I've been trying to look up the book syllabi for different classes for the same reason. This was one of the one's my favorite philosophy prof issued for PHIL101. Oh, when you're ready, I have a book by another professor I loved that is a radical reconceptualizing of Plato that makes a TON of sense when you very closely read it. We should make a thread about The Republic :p

    Edit: Thinking about it, that first professor, Michael McCarthy, had a great book comparing Plato to Arendt.

    I'm reading "Extinction" by Kazuaki Takano.
    Compared to the other books I listed here, at least it sounds like a smart book ;)

    Well, it's only a thriller, but I think it's pretty good.
    It makes me keep reading and I have a tough time putting it aside.
    It's a rather easy writing stlyle (some of the pharmaceutic infos are rather difficult, but you don't have to understand them entirely), which had some people complain, but I don't mind.

    It has an interesting topic and some nice ways to connect the people in the book, so it actually makes sense.

    Daniel Keyes - Flowers for Algernon, I'm finding it interesting so far although it seems a little dated... I'm about a 1/4 in hope it gets better but so far it's a little "meh".

    On kindle i am currently reading: "Methods of persuasion" by nick Kolenda, "Complete calisthenics" by Ashley Kalym "Buddhism: Buddhism for beginners.." by Gabriel Shaw And for paper books, I am reading Plato's "the republic, "Rough guide to Psychology", Max hastings "Nemesis" and "Fahrenheit 451" by ray Bradbury. I have also just finished the last volume I own of "Attack on Titan". I Have not finished any of these due to the fact i am switching between them when I am in a reading mood. I have a lot more but these are the ones I am actively reading at the moment. All seem pretty good, i will get back to you on the fitness ones if i get more educated on the matter. I am a semi-impulsive reader and am getting back into it after many years from not reading books.

    LOL, you are awesome! :D I've been slowly (because I can't read every night) working through "The dream of reason: A history of western philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance" by Anthony Gottlieb, courtesy of my local library. :D
