1984 is an awesome audio book(the one with the old guy narrating), and of course an amazing book.

Since discovering I can d/l audiobooks directly from my library a few months ago, I've been tearing through the catalog. What used to be books on tape, then digital lending at the library is now available over the internet for free (paid for by our tax dollars), and is a great thing.

I've read them both, multiple times, but it's been a few years. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm downloading Atlas Shrugged right now. Whereas the typical audiobook is in the 10 hour range, this is a whopping 63 hours of goodness.

A few suggestions:
Adam Carolla - In 50 years we'll all be chicks.
Freakonomics
Stieg Larsson - Millenium Trilogy (Girl with the dragon tattoo, etc)

In a month you can take over the place…cue evil laugh...

"The Prince" is 500 years old and only 100 pages…but many in business and politics live by it's lessons.

Sample quote:

"From this arises an argument: whether it is better to be loved than feared. I reply that one should like to be both one and the other; but since it is difficult to join them together, it is much safer to be feared than to be loved when one of the two must be lacking." -- Niccolo Machiavelli

"The God Delusion" was the first audio book I downloaded (torrent). Liked it enough that I got the actual book, too.

SouthPark had some fun with Richard Dawkins…in the future there was no God…just warring factions of Atheists alarmed by nomenclature discrepancies. As in what's the difference...

Yeah that was a good series of episodes.

What's the difference is probably a topic for another thread. My short answer is that Atheists don't really band together enough to create a faction, much less 3 warring ones. We just don't care as much I suppose.

I don't know about that. I see Atheist bumper stickers all the time. A MSM in town even has the NC license plate "Atheist". Seems like some are loud, proud, and spreading the word…

Maybe Atheism is just another religion.

Some just want to be in-your-face to the Christian/Theist "establishment". I see the appeal. Topic for another thread, though.
