Below is a list of some of my favorite books

Currently reading:


1. litlove - June 2, 2006

When I worked in a printing firm we used to do the odd bible and the chief estimator told me he could never resist putting at the bottom of a quote for a bible job ‘author’s corrections extra’ !

2. Tim - June 2, 2006

Do they charge more for an “odd bible” than a regular one? 😉

I love the estimator’s comment! – Tim

….. I.d like to reccommend PASSIONATE MARRIAGE by Davud Schnarch ___ it is VERY sexual but never pornographic and about the best text I have ever seen on relationships…….. >It is NOT for the feint (faint) hearted —- Rod Smith (Currently in Geneva and reading your blog on a beaytiful Swiss Day)

4. shelbycockrell - December 16, 2006

The Bible by God (with others) Hahaha.

Freakonomics is one of my favorites, too. Great book.

6. Tim - January 18, 2007

Rod – I haven’t read that, but it sounds very interesting. Hope you had a great trip to Geneva!

Shelby – I’ve always wondered why, since God apparently spoke clearly and unambiguously about the canon (ahem), there wasn’t more clear attribution to the authorship. 😀

icedmocha – I love Freakonomics too, in spite of some of the questions to the authors’ research. At the very least, it bumped me off center in thinking about various issues, and the potential for causality where I hadn’t seen it before.

7. Mad Scientist - April 23, 2008

I cannot recommend ‘House of Leaves’ by Mark Z. Danielewski. The act of reading it is as much an adventure as the story contained within.

8. Tim - April 23, 2008

So you’re saying “House of Leaves” is an adventure to be intentionally missed? Not exactly a glowing review. 😀 – Tim

9. Rod E. Smith, MSMFT - May 31, 2008

I have just taught Lord of the Flies and To Kill a Mockingbird to 7th grade students…… both worth revisiting at least once every two or three years……

Hi Tim,
I just tripped across your site and it seems that we have similar interests (Rod seems to fall in there too). I like book lists, too.
Might I suggest a great book (my humble opinion)? What’s So Great About Christianity? by Dinesh D’Souza.

Hi guys. Did you ever consider the fact, there is a slim chance our psychology has been ‘held back’ a bit?

If you think about who really benefits from the so-called dumbed-down society, do you come out on top? Are you even aware of the psychological pieces that make up the mind, and how easy to manipulate they are by outside sources?

It happens to you on a daily basis.

Yes. It’s one of the reasons that I listen to a variety of sources, from a wide variety of opinions. – Tim
