You guys! I found an atheist book on the Free Shelf at work today! *Dances a jig with jazz hands*

John W. Loftus, author of one of my favorite blogs, Debunking Christianity, and the book Why I Became an Atheist, has edited a collection of articles critiquing the claims of Christianity. The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails is shooting to the top of my to-read list!

Non-fiction—especially concerning subjects about which I am passionate—makes me yearn for an Amazon Kindle or similar device with which I could make highlights and notes about certain passages to remember for later. I revere printed  books too much to write all over them; I even hate writing in pretty journals because I don’t want to sully them with my chicken scratch handwriting. A book about atheism, science, and faith is certainly going to stir up many ideas, and I would love to store those light bulbs of inspiration somewhere. Ah well; it’s on my wishlist 🙂

for shitsn’giggles, here’s a not-so-intellectual book I also grabbed off the Free Shelf that’s sure to make you chuckle.

What books are you reading right now that I should add to my list?

Surrender of Sovereignty by Kirby Clendenon (myself) is available at (also Kindle) and Barnes and Noble. It is my story of coming out of Christianity. Your stories of how you met with your Mom and how you worked through that is very similar to my experience. I wrote this book mainly to give a layman’s view of the very un-inspired way the Bible was written and why I find the main pillars of Christianity are unreasonable. This Book doesn’t look interestiong, and I think I’ll check it out. Good luck and prosper Godlessgirl.

I have a copy of THE CHRISTIAN DELUSION too, but it’s part of a long list of books I want to read.

I’m about to start reading NO MAN KNOWS MY HISTORY, a hard-hitting biography about Joseph Smith.

    Joseph Smith is very interesting to me. I may add that to my list.

Well, I wrote the recently published CONUNDRUM which includes the classic line “Mother Mary, full of grace, you won’t get pregnant if I come on your face.” Somebody send a copy to the pope!
