I have been tagged by AJ to do a Book Meme.
So here it goes:
A book that changed my life? Unfortunately it was Qur’an that changed my life more that any other book. It was Quran that made me an atheist. It was Quran that made me read more about the world, rather than perusing my childhood dream of becoming a vet. Before reading the Quran, my life was all about animals, tigers, lions, etc. After reading it, it became about, humanity, history, politics, religion, philosophy, and especially about creating a better world than the one that I was currently living in.
A book I’ve read more than once: The Republic (Plato). I loved the way it was written. I felt like I was there with them, arguing.
A book I would take with me if I were stuck on a desert island: Hmmm... Possibly a how to do book on how to suvive on an island and how to get home.
A book that made me laugh: A book by an Iranian comedian writer Seyed Karim about his growning up in Iran. Don't remember the exact name though. :(
A book that made me cry: None.
A book that I wish had been written: Any (philosophy?) book that would put forwards arguments on why we need to tackle religion if our humanity is to survive. It needs to show that religion is not just a toothless kitten.
A book I wish had never been written: Quran. I don't think explaination is needed as to why.
I'm currently reading:
Leviathan (by T. Hobbles),
and Two Treatises on Government (by J. Locke).
A book I've been meaning to read: The End of Faith (by Sam Harris).
What turned me onto fiction? I'm not a fan of fiction books. whenever I try reading one, I leave it after reading just 10 pages or less. However, I do read alot of futurist articles on the possible directions that our world can take.
Ok, so now I tag in turn: I'll do that later. No! this is not a blog name.
