I’ve been thinking a lot about reading lately, in part because of a really cool new Boston Skeptics meetup that is currently in development. I’m new to active Skepticism, so for the past few months I have been avidly reading books related to science and skepticism. I’m fairly certain I’ve finished more books since January than I did in all four years of college (unless you count Agatha Raisin mysteries). Right now I’m in the middle of God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens (that one gets some funny looks on the bus), and while it is a good read and very interesting, I won’t lie: I can’t wait to finish so I can start Simon Singh’s Trick or Treatment. I often find myself in a conundrum at the bookstore, trying to decide what topic to read about next. Atheism? Evolution? Quantum mechanics? Quackery? Gaaaa!
Help me out: What are you currently reading, how do you decide what to read next, and what are your recommendations for fellow skeptics?
