People occasionally ask me what books I've read recently. Here is my book list from the last couple of months:
The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
Zealot by Reza Aslan
On the Historicity of Jesus, by Richard Carrier
Christianity, the First Three Thousand Years, by Diarmaid MacCulloch
Atlantic, by Simon Winchester
Einstein, by Walter Isaacson
Your Inner Fish, by Neil Shubin
Talkin' Tar Heel, by Walt Wolfram & Jeffery Reaser
Kneeknock Rise by Natalie Babbitt
A Man of Misconceptions by John Glassie
Ten Thousand Breakfasts by Ann Ehringhaus
Death and the Afterlife by Samuel Scheffler
Numerous booklets, articles, and book chapters about whaling and porpoise fishing on the Outer Banks (look for a Newsletter article about this in 2015).
I also recently watched Woody Allen's movie, Annie Hall. And I started worrying that I might be like Alvy Singer, reading too many serious books! Then I remembered that I also enjoy The Funny Times.
Maybe some of our readers have book suggestions for me and other folks who follow this blog. Leave a comment if you do.
