ElliandreWelcome to BookTalk! How did you learn of us?? I see you've made posts on other communities, so you're not new to ezBoard. What brought you hear?

Hi Chris! I registered a very long time ago and then moved away and had no computer for a while. Then when I got the internet again I tried to sign up for a history forum, but I was having so many technical difficulties that I just gave up and then I kind of forgot about ezboard until now. I'm pretty sure I am new to this community, but it may be that I did post here before as I used to read a lot of book reviews on websites like this. More interesting than amazon.com reviewers So yeah tonight I remembered ezboard and came to search for some book reviews. I'm also thinking of getting some books on Agnosticism.

I'm glad you found us. We'll be reading "Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction" during the last 3-months of 2006, so please do consider joining us. I just created that forum a few minutes ago.

That does look like an interesting book to read. I will check it out although right now I'm low on cash. I wish there was a free online library where I could check out/download books and then return them by email

I'm also low on cash AND wish there was a way to get books online for free. Some of our books can be found in public libraries, so it might be worth looking.

no no no that won't work.. I might be on some kind of hit list.. I have a stack of philosophy textbooks I haven't returned. The thing is the late fees for all of them combined will be too high for me to pay. There needs to be a book amnesty or something. if they can collect weapons in war zones and grant amnesty to rebels.. why can't libraries collect overdue books and forgive and forget the fines???

The first thing to do is bring back the overdue books immediately. Stop the clock! The longer you hold them the more they will consider putting out a hit on you.

I think the clock already stops at around $30/book after a certain time period and I signed them out several years ago and then left the country I guess I will have to budget and return one book every 3 months or something. I'll start that after Christmas.
