Post Back on track soon
I will be posting the content of my thoughts and notes soon...it has been busy for me and I have no focus at all. I am taking notes and will respond to the last posts Dissident and Mad have posted (both who are NOT reading the book!).

Who is reading this? Who will be posting? No commitment...just a feeler...

I have this book, intend to read it as it is a little more my style (I think) than Peace.

I'll start it today! (promise)

Just because I'm not reading it now, don't assume that I won't be reading it in the future. And I DID read the sections that I've commented on.

what are you testing?


"Come on now, who do you,
who do you, who do you, who do you think you are
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control
Well, I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
Just like me" ~ Gnarls Barkley

I've posted my notes for chapters 5, 6, and 7, and now I'm going to take a break from the book for a while. Dennett's style and arguments are wearing on me, and I'm not sure that finishing the book is going to be worthwhile until discussion picks up in this forum.

It's been suggested in the past that my style of discussing books like this drives people away from the threads. If anyone feels that way, then just pretend, for the moment, that I haven't posted anything at all. Go ahead and make your comments, and later on, if you want to see a dissenting opinion, you can go back and check out what I've written so far. I definitely don't want to dissuade anyone from taking part in the discussion.

I was testing the ability to create custom titles beneath members names. I'd like to give some credit to members who donate money to help support BookTalk, and one of the methods will be to place some sort of custom title under their names.
