Picked up a few books at the library today. The first was The Satanic Verses, the book that earned Salman Rushdie a fatwah in Iran. I've been wanting to figure out for a while now what all the fuss was about, so today seemed as good a time as any.
The second was a collection of essays by Bertrand Russell. It was on the same shelf, so it picqued my interest. It should make for some interesting blog material. What I really find neat is that the essay was akin to the modern blog post. Short vignettes on some topic or another. I look forward to writing about it.
