Post Re: So who's reading this book and participating in discussi
I have both books, and fully intend on reading both. I'm a few chapters into Peace -- picked it up first because it's 1) the actual poll winner, 2) going to be a bit harder for me to read, since I'm a dud at history, 3) lighter, in trade paper (:\ )

I will crack this one on my breaks from unpacking into my new house!

Post Re: So who's reading this book and participating in discussi
I started Chapter 1 last night. I think I am going to enjoy this book. I just hope I get to read it on a steady basis...recently, I would start a book and things would conspire against me and I would have to put it down for a week or so before I could really get back to it.

I do not have the book yet. I plan on participating. Things are a bit hectic for me right now, but hopefully I will get it together and participate soon.

Post Re: So who's reading this book and participating in discussi
Mark me down as a maybe. I'm going to concentrate on "A Peace to End All Peace", but if I have time, and the discussion makes it seem worthwhile, I may play catch up on "Breaking the Spell" at a later date.

Dissident...

Does your library do inter-library loans and such? I can always get a book because my county links all the libraries. It is great, I just go online, place the order and it ships to my home library and they call me when it arrives!

Post Re: So who's reading this book and participating in discussi
Speaking of libraries, mine has sent me an email saying that the book has been recalled. That means no more renewals, and I have to return it a week from today. So I'm going to attempt to burn through the rest of it, continued interest permitting, before I have to return it, and I'll post some comments on the remaining chapters.

I have the book and I'm going to try to join the discussion before it's too late. Before you turn the book in, try to figure out what he means by "free-floating rationale" enough to explain it to me. That seems like an important notion to him as well as the meme idea, which is also new to me.

Post Re: So who's reading this book and participating in discussi
I think I'm going to have to go to another book to figure out precisely what he envisions with "free-floating rationale". He doesn't elaborate much in this one. I get the gist of what he means, but there seems to be more involved than he's presented here, and I'd hate to blindly accept the idea without some idea of what it implies.
