    I got a Kindle Fire for xmas and I have loaded up on the classics... for free! Anything that is free domain they let you just download at no cost.

    I have the complete Charles Dickens collection, Mark Twain, Conan O'Doyle, Charles Darwin etc...

    It feels great having a collection of all this amazing literature, now I just need some time to read them...

    Recently I finished Joe Abercrombie's The First Law books, they were good fun. A nice easy read with great characters. I especially liked Inquisitor Glokta.
    Most of Edgar Rice Burrough's books are in the free domain. I'm a big fan of the Tarzan series of 24 novels.

    I read them all when I was junior high age, they are very dated but I really liked them, the first one was written in 1912, The movies have never really followed them.

    He also wrote the John Carter novel series, what the current movie is based on.

    Reading the Foundation Trilogy, by Isaac Asimov, some 36 years after I first read it. I guess it's not a trilogy anymore since are 7 volumes now, as Mr. Asimov wrote some more after I read it the first time.

    The Nature of Nature: Examining the Role of Naturalism in Science

    The intellectual and cultural battles now raging over theism and atheism, conservatism and secular progressivism, dualism and monism, realism and antirealism, and transcendent reality versus material reality extend even into the scientific disciplines. This stunning new volume captures this titanic clash of worldviews among those who have thought most deeply about the nature of science and of the universe itself.

    Unmatched in its breadth and scope, The Nature of Nature brings together some of the most influential scientists, scholars, and public intellectuals—including three Nobel laureates—across a wide spectrum of disciplines and schools of thought. Here they grapple with a perennial question that has been made all the more pressing by recent advances in the natural sciences:Is the fundamental explanatory principle of the universe, life, and self-conscious awareness to be found in inanimate matter or immaterial mind?The answers found in this book have profound implications for what it means to do science, what it means to be human, and what the future holds for all of us.
    I actually won this book in an online contest. Thus far, it's lived up to my expectations, if not exceeded them.

    For the record: I consider atheism to be irrational, and, from my experiences, is typically based on emotions and logical fallacies. On the ladder of reason, I consider it several rungs beneath magic.

    I'd love to elaborate, but this discussion is (I think) against the rules. Plus, my views tend to get certain people (neck-beards and mouth-breathers) extremely butthurt, and I'd rather stay friendly with everyone here.
