I'm finishing up Bruce Feiler's Where God Was Born -- an easy read and enjoyable. Next I'll start reading Hunger and Happiness by L. Shannon Jung.

I'm also hoping to find a copy of The Law of Nines the new book by Terry Goodkind. I really like his stuff.

I just finished "We the Living" and "Anthem", and now I am reading "The Fountainhead".
All By Ayn Rand.

I haven't read anything buy Rand in quite some time, but I did enjoy Anthem, which I read because of the song of the same name by Rush. Embarassed

I have always wanted to read Fountainhead, however. Maybe I should pick that up sometime.

Good book. I think "A Brave New World" was far more prophetic.

I had to do a paper on that book. I want to read The Abolition of Man after I am done with all the Rand books.

I am also a huge Dostoyevsky fan. He foresaw the coming of communism, and it gives me chills when I think about it.

Crime and Punishment is a must for every Christian because it touches on themes of redemption in such a beautiful and yet harrowing manner.

I just started "Jesus Matters," and am finding it to be good reading. I also finished "Within the Ancient Forest" a few days ago (a very fast read), and I was impressed.
