A few weeks ago I reviewed the book Why There is No God by Armin Navabi. A week after that I wrote a short blog post about The Atheist Republic community sat up by Navabi and other Atheists. I recently finished reading the book Your God is Too Small: 50 Essays on Life, Love & Liberty Without Religion written by The Citizens of the Atheist Republic.
The title explains it all. It’s a collection of 50 essays posted on the blogs of the Atheist Republic in which each author discusses various aspects of religion and Atheism. It’s a fantastic book that’s easy to read, yet has a ton of helpful information for the reader. It’s a great resource to read about the thoughts of others and is especially helpful if you’re new to the Atheism community and/or questioning religion.
The best part is this book is free for Amazon Kindle! You can get it here:
Your God is Too Small
You can’t argue about an excellent book that is free! To conclude I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! A MUST read!
Last Sunday I posted a short review of the book ‘A is for Alibi’ by Sue Grafton. I thoroughly enjoyed this short mystery novel and immediately checked out the second book in the series ‘B is for Burglar’. Again, another excellent mystery novel by Sue Grafton! If you’re a fan of mystery/murder/thriller novels I highly encourage you to check out Sue Grafton’s alphabet series. They are excellent! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I recently decided to test out a new author in the mystery genre. After much deliberation at the library I chose Sue Grafton and started with the first book in her Kinsey Millhone series, titled A is for Alibi. This is a relatively short book but one that I enjoyed. It was a pleasure reading a book with a strong female lead character. I’ve already checked out the second book in the series, B is for Burglar. The series goes through each letter of the alphabet. The author is currently on book ‘X’, so nearing the end, assuming ‘Z’ is the end. I figure that by the time I catch up, the last few books will be written and published. At least I hope so. If you’re a murder/mystery fan, you can’t go wrong with the first book in Sue Grafton’s alphabet series.
I’m continuing to work through Jim Butcher’s Code of Alera fantasy series. I recently finished book #4, Captain’s Fury, and Butcher does not disappoint! The books in the middle of the series are just as good as the first two books. I really hope the end of the series (6 book series) doesn’t disappoint, but from what I’ve seen so far, I have nothing to worry about.
If you’re a fan of science fiction, you can’t go wrong with Jim Butcher’s Code of Alera series! I give book #4, Captain’s Fury, 5 out of 5 stars.
I’m a big science fiction fan and have read many different science fiction authors. I’m on a Ben Bova kick of late and just recently finished reading Millennium. Millennium is the story if Chet Kinsman and his life living in a colony on the Moon. Earth is on the verge of a nuclear war and Kinsman is trying to stop it. There are many science fiction aspects in it that still exceed today’s technology, but the idea of people destroying Earth is a real one. Maybe a nuclear strike between nations is not as worrisome as it was during the Cold War, but global warming and pollution are serious concerns today. The book also shows the success and failures of the individuals beyond the main mission. There are struggles with family, relationships, friendships, etc. In other words, although it is science fiction, it is not all that different from the struggles we face today. If you have any interest in science fiction, you will enjoy this book. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
