    This is a question I have asked before elsewhere. Always neat to hear the answers.

    Currently I am reading "Whoever Fights Monsters" by Ressler.

    I'm going to try to finish Harry Potter 2 now that my son is finished and then the Hobbit, Fellowship and Towers before the movie comes out and follow quickly with Return of the King.

    I am also constantly referring to Infinite Insights for class material etc. I look through them once a week or so, but I can't say I'm "reading" them cover to cover. I tried that once and bogged down in book 3 somewhere.

    I'm also doing a Bible study so I have assignments related to that and I need to be reading it daily.

    I have 101 and have read it and liked it. How is 201? What's it consist of? Did you like it? can you compare it to 101? Thanx.

    Arnisador - I see u are reading Dawkins - i can recommend Hecht's "The Babel Effect" - it is fiction, but hard-science based fiction bearing on the social effects of many meme's surrounding selfish gene theory (and other things).

    Its a truly excellent book.

    Cheers

    Bao

    Thanks, I'll look it over at the bookstore. My wife reads a great deal of sci-fi and she may be interested too.

    The Silmarillion, by Tolkien of course.
    I am going to read The Two Towers again, as well, before the movie comes out.

    It's a good book to read. It goes over some history of the forms and gives examples of breakdowns of short/long 1 & 2. Pretty informative if this is what your looking for. Eventually I want to get out to start teaching on my own. I could use all the help I can get. :asian: Kenpo101 gives a good base for 201. 201 Just goes a lot farther indepth.

    How the mind works By steven plinker(or somthing like that). He is a professor of Psych at MIT. It goes into how we think, learn and process information. really good so far but it is kind of heavy reading.

    I've read a few review of his "The Blank Slate" recently and am interested in reading more about Evolutionary Psychology in general. Sounds like a fascinating and useful thesis.
