Books, books, books…

 

Books, books, books — I’m always reading at least two books, one fiction, one non-fiction. When I have the free time, I haunt the bookstores like some spend their lives shopping (not to generalize any specific gender). The presence of books gives me comfort to know there are superior minds to engage.

Recently I finished up a couple of books; first the fiction that Natasha “GG” Van had recommended me. This one’s called The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream by Paulo Coelho. I found it a tad bit too spiritual but if you are looking for an inspirational journey just under 200 pages, this is the shit. You will undersand why the universe is conspiring in your favor.

The nonfiction book I’d highly wanna throw into your ignorant face is Bad Astronomy: Misconceptions and Misuses Revealed, from Astrology to the Moon Landing “Hoax” by Philip C. Plait. In these modern times, a lot of people are still duped into believing that psychics exist and astrology can determine their fates. There was a study done last year by the National Science Foundation that found that 70% of the American people are science illiterate which makes them susceptible to superstitious beliefs. This book is a weapon to combat that illiteracy.

That’s it for now…
