Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Question of the Day (Books):
Currently reading "A Cambodian Odyssey" by Dr. Haing S. Ngor.
Am enjoying parts of it, but the book deals with his ordeal under the Khmer Rouge. It's like sitting down to tea and conversation with a Holocaust survivor who keeps asking "are you sure you want to hear this?" and then continues after receiving an affirmative nod.

I am still reading "The Last Place on Earth" about the race to the South Pole. I have not picked it up in several weeks. Too busy with work and other stuff. It is a great book and great perspective on life at turn of the last century and the advances that we have made in the last 100 years.

I'm reading "Caribbean" by James Michener. If you want to learn some geography and some history while at the same time reading a good yarn you can't beat Mr. Michener.

I just started Barbara Kingsolver's The Lacuna and am not far enough into it to be sure but I usually like her books.

Gerald Schroder's The Science of God. Examining the creation and the big bang from the perspective of a Rabbi with a PhD in physics raises the question of are parts of Biblical narrative really contradictory?

w_r you might want to check out a Physicist named Garret Lisi. He wrote a paper entitled "An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything". GUT Theory. :-)
