I'm re-reading Dennett's Darwin's Dangerous Idea.

I need to get some more Dennett.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: What Are You Currently Reading?
Just finished up this one...

[Image: 115661.jpg.square-true_maxheight-285_size-285.jpg]

If I had to give stars, I'd say 3. The characters are not particularly deep, even if they are interesting in a Blink / Hobo / Evil_monster kind of way. So it's difficult to connect to them as solidly as I'd like. That being said, the story itself is pretty cool, and I'm quite fond of the artwork in this one...

One thing for sure - it ain't no Saga, but hell, what the fuck is? I would place Saga well at the top of my favorites (needs next volume badly Hobo ), with Walking Dead a pretty close second (need to get the next volume in that series soon!), while this one trails farther behind.

It's so difficult to rank, though. Because I'd say I honestly like the artwork in this one better than in Walking Dead. But the characters are easier to connect to in Walking Dead. Hobo

I am not placing Harley Quinn in the rankings yet as I haven't finished it. Blush Will dive back into it as soon as I post this! Big Grin

This makes me feel so much better about my own bouncing from one book to another, though mine is dependent upon my mood. Tongue

Lucretius "The Nature of Things." Excellent thus far (minus some peeves with the translation).
