Another book down, 40 to go, I begin this week (right after I finish this post) another great Epic. The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, an 832 Page Tome of all 5 stories (with one extra) of Douglas Adams’ famous series. It had a movie made about it believe, I never saw it but I’m interested to read the book. I’ve also recieved “The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution” and already own “The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason.” So I’m merely waiting on Week 14’s to get moving!
America (The Book) was a very interesting read, a interesting take on US History, Politics, and even Geography. The Teacher’s Edition had corrections made by a US Professor (whose name is unfortunately eluding me) and thusly gives you some exquisite gems of information that you would likely never otherwise have known.
Okay, maybe not you, but I certainly learned a thing or two. Plus to watch the quazi battle of Jon Stewart and Co. vs. The Professor was quite pleasant and made the entire journey easy to swallow. Much easier to take in than that new beard of his I must say ;).
Not much else to say in this case, I’ve spent my entire day’s worth of typing on the last few posts. If you enjoy History, Political Theory, or just want to be reminded that not every television personality is a soulless idiot I’d highly suggest taking a gander at this book. You can grab a copy for as little as 10 dollars quite easily :). If not much cheaper with a little rooting around.
Unrelated but this is probably one of the best ideas in Coffee.
