Beside the fact that I saw her on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart endorsing her book, no I can't. I'll see if I can find anything later though.

Jon Stewart! Say no more!

I am currently reading The Naked Pint by Christina Perozzi. Great book on the culture of craft beer.

Ive started reading Gulliver's Travels slowly. So I am going back and forth between that and The Naked Pint, which I listed early. Both great books so far.

I didn't know there was a dark side to christian history, I thought it was all dark.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

Almost done, should finish it tonight. Great book with the idea of how most of society is fooled into their lives. HIGHLY Recommend it.

This is one of my next books.. I heard about this from the Daily Show, and wanted to read it for a while. Almost picked it up when I was at Barnes and Noble, but will wait. Between this and the soon to be released WikiLeaks on the Banks.. Hopefully should shake things up. I would suggest the book I am currently reading as one of your next ones. It dives into this scandal from a different take..

I'm currently working on The Joys of Motherhood by Buchi Emecheta

[Image: joysofmotherhood.gif]

Pretty good so far, about a Nigerian woman and her struggles with motherhood in a constantly changing Nigeria, trying to cling to her heritage while the white man's culture overwhelms and takes in the youth including her own children. Really well written too.
