Mere Christianity- By CS Lewis Brilliant!
also, Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe

Got my bases covered spiritually and physically LOL

Just finished Ghost Story (Harry Dresden Series) by Jim Butcher.
Ironically, one of the main characters is named Mab (Queen of cold and darkness) Great series!!!

I saw the first episode of the Dresden show. Book looks interesting.

I've read the Lewis book. Have you ever read Ragamuffin Gospel?

I have not seen the TV show ( only lasted one season) but I did read all thirteen of the Dresden files... got the wife started on them now.
I have not read The Ragamuffin Gospel... what's the deal on that ? Any good ?

Both great books!


Currently, quite a few, one of which I've finished a short while back...Fiber Menace: The Truth About The Leading Role Of Fiber In Diet Failure, Constipation, Hemorrhoids... by Konstantin Monastyrsky. Not a bad book, though I feel he goes off-topic to try and prove his case further and takes his diet to the ultimate of extreme bordering on the stupid; seems a solid book info wise and if applied sensibly. He backs-up his info on how the body works and quite a few of the paleo style dieters may enjoy it as well as the carb backloaders etc...it reinforces those points...an interesting read, if you can sift through a minor bit of exaggeration etc which may have been used to pad the book out, who knows.

Yes, a classic. Worthy of reading.

Blue Like Jazz is another good one.

Going to merge this with our main book thread.
