Michael Shermer

I have found a new skeptic to read! YAY! I finished Why People Believe Weird Things by Michael Shermer last week. I really enjoyed it. My favorite Carl Sagan book after Cosmos (which is everybody's favorite) is The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark and Shermer's book is similar in form. It was definitely a book i needed to read right now with the whole "creation science" thing going on. Made me feel good about knowing about science and being able to think and reason. The author is the publisher of Skeptic magazine. So now I have a new magazine subscription and another list of books to read. Hooray! :)

also finished a fun reread Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop. A Yahoo group i am in is reading the second of the series so i figured i would reread these. Fun brain candy. It is a wonderfully detailed world of magic and fantasy, intrigue and romance.
