What I’m reading right now

  • “The Growth of a City: Power and Politics in Portland, Oregon 1915 to 1950” by E. Kimbark MacColl, 1979
  • “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins, 2006
  • “Fragile Things” by Neil Gaiman, 2006
  • “Breaking The Spell: Religion as a natural phenomenon” by Daniel Dennett, 2006

So… one history text, one fiction (short stories), and two atheistic books (the very definition of “non-fiction”, heh). Quite a lot. And, yes, I tend to read more than one book at a time. It’s a habit I’ve developed over the years and it serves me well. The above list is in the order in which I’ve added the books to my list.

I may at some point make this a regular feature, if only because they’re easy to generate and I’m reading all the time.

I may also, at some other point, update this particular post, and any future posts, with actual book reviews or maybe short descriptions of what I think of the books I’m in the middle of, or more details, or something.

I may also, at some other other point, update these to reflect actual book citation conventions, if only to satisfy my own inner pedant.

I could come up with a separate list of books I’ve started but haven’t been able to finish. I may do that, at some point that’s different (probably) from the other, afore-mentioned other points.
