Just looking for a good book club; this seems like a good bet.
I chose this group because I think it's fair to say that most of what I read falls under the category of "brainy." I can only promise that I will contribute my own unique point of view.
James Burke, Robert Heinlein, Carl Sagan, Bruce Schneier, Phillip Pullman, Douglas Adams
Stranger in a Strange Land (Heinlein), Beyond Fear (Schneier), The Demon-Haunted World (Sagan), The Axemaker's Gift (Burke), The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Adams), Rendezvous with Rama (Clarke), 1984 (Orwell), Alice in Quantumland (Gilmore)

Welcome to the group! If you're interested, we have a great book coming up on the 28th - The Warded Man by Peter Brett.
I just gave a couple Star Wars books a go after probably 12 years since my high school SW reading phase - quite the flash back. Would be fun to commiserate over how bad (and yet awesome) they are.
Hi Jim! I'm like one week late with my reply :S I'm just this bad in keeping in touch with people. It was nice to meet you at the mandarin meetup. I feel I'm not yet ready to assist these meeting regularly, but I hope to see you again later on, once I'm a mandarin master! :) Zai jian!
