Reading Group: Choose your own book adventure!

In 2016 this blog is hosting a reading group comprised of my friends and whoever else manages to wander in. All are welcome. The first task is to choose a book. Three books are listed below along with an Amazon link so you can read a bit about them. I chose only books that were available in some format for under $20 and that were under 300 pages. Each person in the group can cast one vote either by leaving a comment on the post or, if you have my contact info, sending me a message. Voting is closed at 11:59 on Christmas Eve, so your Christmas present can be finding out which book (hooray!).

1. The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

    Haidt for me, since it’s already on both my reading list and my bookshelf.

    I’d like to read along, but I don’t have too much of an opinion on the book – they all sound interesting. I suppose if I had to choose one, I’d choose *The Righteous Mind* because I’m interesting to see if what he identifies as “gut feelings” as any relation to Charles Taylor’s (and others’) social imaginary. As in, what we sense to be reality without even thinking about it. So. If you’ll have me in your group!

      I’ve been wanting to read The Righteous Mind.

    *has any relation* not as any relation…

    The Righteous Mind

    I vote Haidt, but this is strictly due to it being in Audible format, which makes me fitting this into my normal routine potentially feasible.

  6. Stan

    Not to say that the subject matter isn’t interesting. In fact, I may have still chosen it if all the other ones were in audible, but with that not being the case, audible was the tiebreaker.

    Hmmmm. I think I’d go with God and the Atlantic: America, Europe, and the Religious Divide.

    No preference. They all sound interesting. Yes, I know that is completely unhelpful.
