Re: What are you reading?

Took a slight 'detour' from Mo Hyder . .


.. just finished book 3 (of 5) of the Atlantia series by Dean Crawford

https://www.goodreads.com/series/143073-atlantia

Very impressed so far to be honest, and by halfway through book 2 I was starting to envisage it as a televised Sci-Fi series to rival 'The Expanse'

I'll be making further forays into the writings of Mr Crawford very soon

Some flat pack instructions.

I was a fool, should have done as I usually do, ignore them and start knocking bits together. Something will result.

The trouble with a lot of these instructions is you need a magnifying glass to read the instructions.

Try downloading a PDF off the internet Mr K as that might be a bit clearer for you.

Re: What are you reading?

Cinema and Sentiment: Film’s Challenge to Theology ... because I have to decide my dissertation topic by the time uni goes back in September and I’m probably going to have to buy a ton of my own books in order to study the area I’m interested in.

Re: What are you reading?

Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology - it's a bit tough reading, I think I need something of a primer to help follow what is going on.

Ooooo, Thomas Aquinas I quite like the ethics of natural law (the Christian theology thereof, not George Harrison) and not just because that’s what the Allies leaned on quite heavily at Nuremberg. But personally I’d resist relying on it too much for its attempts to prove God via reason and observation of nature. Postmodern culture (which is what we live in) is far more responsive to confessions of belief rather than propositional arguments, especially when they’re backed by authentic lifestyle.

Re: What are you reading?

https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/...s-on-goodreads

Goodreads had posted a list of "The 100 Most Popular Science Fiction Books on Goodreads"

(Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations)

I’ve read 83 of them, but I have always, since my teens, read a lot of SF.

I’ve read something by most of the authors in that list, but surprisingly only 7 of the actual books listed ...

Re: What are you reading?

I've read several of those and seen the film adaptations of many more.

A bit surprised not to see The Tomorrow File on the list.
