My favorite book growing up was Where the Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein. I read & re-read that book so many times the binding fell apart & it became a bunch of bunches of pages. I still have some of those poems memorized.. As for today, I don't know that I have any one favorite book. I like to read any genre of fiction as long as the story is interesting. Sometimes I'll read (or listen to a reading of) nonfiction if it has an entertaining quality, like Dawkins or Hitchens for instance. I'm also becoming a fan of the more sciencey stuff recently, like Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Lawrence Krauss.
Again, don't really have one favorite, but I love ethnic food of all kinds. From Freebirds to Kalachandji's, Pho to Greek/Mediterranean places, I love it all and I'd love to find a good Ethiopian place! Basically, I'm wide open, as long as mushrooms or spicy peppers aren't the main ingredient!
My ability to make the quickest and oddest-seeming connections between the topic at hand and wherever I end up (after the many instantaneous stops along the way).. =)
Back when I was in better shape, I liked to ride bikes through areas to explore them.. Nowadays I like to read, crochet (and otherwise create things every way I know how), listen to lively debates on the topic of atheism v everything, read articles and watch videos about skepticism and visit interesting places. Oh and video games, of course! From Atari to NES to Xbox.
Good old Google, to be honest, though the list on Metroplex Atheists helped a bit! I think it was them, anyway.. So many sites!!
Looking to find new friends with whom conversation won't get awkward when the subject of God comes up. =)
