    I'm vaguely sure there has been a thread like this but f it,figured i'd starty another as it's a worthwhile topic of discussion.



    I've been stuck on the dissapointing and thoroughly mind numbing "what the fuck" exasperation that is Chuck Palahniuk's newest novel for weeks now.



    I bought Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics last night and also plan on either Bukowski's Pulp or Carl Hiason's Skinny Dip a bit later on.
    Pile of data cannot be equated to the irrefutable truth, no more than a mountain of shit can be scaled to bring one closer to enlightenment.

    No bro-science at Purus because we heart Pubmed and all its peer reviewed studies just too damn much to cheat you with overblown hype.

    Just finished reading Trespass by Craig Wolf. A very good (but poorly copy edited) entry in the horror genre from a promising new author.

    Currently re-reading Sewer, Gas, & Electric by Matt Ruff. One of my all time favorite books.

    Next up will probably be Concepts, Techniques, and Models of Computer Programming, a supposedly outstanding book that I've been putting off getting into.

    Just finished The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann and Im currently reading The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky.



    In the future I"m planning on starting the book series "The history of greek philosophy". It's only about 7 books from what I can gather so that will keep me busy for maybe a year or so.

    "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon" by Spider Robinson



    A friend gave me the book after we discussed our disapointment over "The Hitchhiker's Guide...." movie.



    Imagine science fiction at it's nerdiest inspired by dive-bar socialism.



    It's only worth reading as a novelty, and that's speaking highly of it.

    I like them both, a lot, but I like TranceFormations the most.



    ( But then, I'm a bit of a Milton Model junkie, so what can I say. )

    Deeper and deeper we go, into what it is we do not know, but we can learn, really learn, to make those tranceformations, even deeper, now...........

    State of Fear by Michael Crighton.

    Yes I know it's not profound fiction but it presents an interesting picture of both sides of the global warming issue and how scientific research is so influenced by money and politics.
