Pretty sure I won't get to all these in 2017, but it's an excellent reference resource and I shall save it for that purpose. Thanks for sharing.

Roberto- Many thanks for cultivating what appears to be a fascinating list of reads on topics of interest to non-believers (though one always hopes everyone would enjoy them for the sake of conversation). Can I link this somehow to our Sunday Assembly-Sacramento website? I know we have many persons there who would find this interesting but aren't linked to SAC FAN. Also, we would love to have a "prepared" book report given in person if you would like to show up one Sunday. We meet on the third sunday each month at 11 am.

Janet,
I'm not sure if you were asking if you could, as in I gave you permission (in which case, yes, absolutely, my pleasure!) or if you can link to it technically (in which case it should be relatively easy, but I believe David Diskin owns those groups in meetup and Facebook, I'll drop him a line asking him to link.)
I'll have to think about the book report thing, and I'll ask during the book club meeting to see if anyone wants to give a report.
