i do know this is a forum for movies buuuttt... books came first? haha

my 'job' allows for a pretty blank sched so in addition to loving and craving movies im also a fiend for books and have been known to devour a novel or two..

im always interested in what other books people are coming across so hit me with the last book you read...
.
.
.
today i got into some novellas and read Franz Kafkas the Metamorphosis and HP Lovecrafts At the Mountains of Madness. both out of bigger volumes of mine and both very good. the latter took longer to read but i always like lovecrafts intelligent prose. definitely recommend both if you come across them.

Not a big reader, but the last book I read was Evasion released by the anarchist collective CrimethInc, the original author wished to remain anonymous for reasons which are pretty obvious if you read it. It's a wonderful true story about what it's like to travel across the United States with nothing but the clothes on your back and a 5 dollar bill in your pocket. Lots of great information in this book that could save your life if you ever end up on the streets. It's freely available on the net for anyone who knows how to use google :thumbz:

I love to read. However I do it in spurts if that makes sense. I will go a long time without reading then I'll find a book that just hits me and then I'm reading constantly for months. The last book I read was Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. It is the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse novels that is now a tv series on HBO called True Blood. I was quite impressed on how well HBO stuck to the book.

Of course I am a huge fan of the Twilight series. I've read each of the four books about a million times. Loved the books and the movie. Can't wait for the second movie to come out.

Great Thread!! Thanks for posting it!

Why Is Sex Fun?

Image

Brief Information

Why are humans one of the few species to have sex in private? Why are human females the only mammals to go through menopause? Why is the human penis so unnecessarily large? There is no more knowledgeable authority than the award-winning author of THE THIRD CHIMPANZEE to answer these intriguing questions. Here is a delightfully entertaining and enlightening look at the unique sex lives of humans.

Product Description

To us humans the sex lives of many animals seem weird. In fact, by comparison with all the other animals, we are the ones with the weird sex lives. How did that come to be?Just count our bizarre ways. We are the only social species to insist on carrying out sex privately. Stranger yet, we have sex at any time, even when the female can't be fertilized (for example, because she is already pregnant, post-menopausal, or between fertile cycles). A human female doesn't know her precise time of fertility and certainly doesn't advertise it to human males by the striking color changes, smells, and sounds used by other female mammals.Why do we differ so radically in these and other important aspects of our sexuality from our closest ancestor, the apes? Why does the human female, virtually alone among mammals go through menopause? Why does the human male stand out as one of the few mammals to stay (often or usually) with the female he impregnates, to help raise the children that he sired? Why is the human penis so unnecessarily large?There is no one better qualified than Jared Diamond--renowned expert in the fields of physiology and evolutionary biology and award-winning author--to explain the evolutionary forces that operated on our ancestors to make us sexually different. With wit and a wealth of fascinating examples, he explains how our sexuality has been as crucial as our large brains and upright posture in our rise to human status.

Oh! Another fan! :bowz:
I have worked my way through the Foundation Saga and am impatiently awaiting to get a hold of my dad's Robot Series. :grin:
Loved his take on detective stories in Asimov's Mysteries. He was truly amazing!

I appreciate the tip! Will definitely be checking him out! :heartz: Same era too, I see. (Thank you, Google!)
I see a trip to the library in my near future.

As self study a very intresting book... you really should read when you want to know in a critical and pretty objective way more about religion and the big why's, as why can be religion so aggresive and how did it all start.

About all kind of religion experiencers, the dangers, the mis-understanding and the human need/hunk for religion.
