What Have You Been Reading?

Over the last month I've continued to listen to audio books. I've finished:
  • The Happiness Hypothesis, Jonathan Haidt
  • The End of Faith, Sam Harris
  • Letter to a Christian Nation, Sam Harris
When I get chance I'll give a little review of each one because they all have some excellent points.

"The Black Order" by James Rollins - a thriller/adventure novel in the same vein as the Da Vinci code, except it's smarter and science based and not steeped in possible blood-lines.

I haven't done the audio book thing, yet. Or podcasts. But I'm loving the Creative Zen V player! Again, thanks for the suggestion.

I've recently finished:

"The Republican Noise Machine", by David Brock, "The Republican War on Science", by Chris Mooney, and "An Alphabetical Life", by Wendy Werris, all on the non-fiction side.

On the fiction side, I recently finished "The Templar Legacy", by Steve Berry.

In non-fiction, I'm currently reading "The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality" by Brian Greene, and "Hotel California", by Barney Hoskyns. My current fiction read is "The Alexandria Link," by Steve Berry.

As sideon said about the book he is reading, both the Steve Berry books are squarely in "Da Vinci Code" territory, but the writing is much better. And, while I won't claim that his books don't have any plot holes in them, they're a lot smaller than the holes in Dan Brown's plots.
