Books to Read in 2011

Some of the books I aspire to read this year, listed in no particular order, just like my bookshelf...


The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan [Can't believe I didn't read this ages ago!]

The Idea of the Holy by Rudolph Otto [Otto was a very deep well]


There will be others, of course...and a Master's paper to complete.  Stay tuned!

UPDATE: 21 April 2011: I'm getting tired of heavy reading so I'm going to cut The Feeling of Risk and replace it with The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

Black Swan comes highly recommended by several of my peers.  I picked up a copy last night with some birthday money.  I'll keep you posted...

Update the Nth: But wait, there's more...


  1. No C.S. Lewis makes 2011 a bad year.

  2. I'm amazed at how many of these books I own. You got good taste (compliments myself)
