Hahaha. Was just looking at my Amazon page and noticed that my print book which sells for $4.99 new, is available used, for the bargain bin price of $43.58 + $3.99 shipping.
Who bought my book and is now trying to turn a profit on it? Wait, could it be a family member trying to sell the free copy they received from me? Hmm. Do I have any family members living in Georgia? Nope. Another mystery. So many mysteries, so little time.
To commemorate my ten year anniversary of being a blogger at Solo, I have put together a book, in PDF format, of my favorite polemical writings from the last ten years. I have titled it...

The past is the past.
Today is a fresh start.
This is now the time for resolution.
Start of my fifth book: realitybites Resolution.
Book four is being assembled now...
Should have a link to it later today.
All books can be downloaded for free from my Box. They are in PDF format. Links to books.
Certain passages in Morrissey's book, Autobiography, read as misogynistic polemics against femaleness. To deny this is delusional. Here is an example: "Night after night like an unowned dog I would tear through the park, a creature in human form, all perilous bolt inviting danger, the bike dancing controlled flips as I gulped jets of rain–more danger, more fun. In comparison, what had girls to offer? Nothing but a mangled jungle of tangled hair presented as the jackpot payoff. Honeypots...
This is a summary/study guide of sorts for myself and anyone else interested in Street Epistemology.
*I am learning to be more tolerant and less judgmental through reading this book. The title is slightly misleading. This book is not about evangelizing. The goal is not to convert anyone into an atheist. The idea is to teach critical thinking skills which will move a person from a faith-based epistemology to a reason-based one. Hopefully this will further...
My print version is on its way. Should have it in a week or so. But in the meantime I am going to start reading it as an eBook on my tablet.
This is an ongoing post, updated regularly until I finish the book.
Let the reading begin...
Good morning. And indeed it is. After reading Moz's book in bed last night, I slept like a baby. Didn't want to put it down. But I knew I had a busy day up ahead.
This is going to sound cliche, but the book is a page...
I just put together a third PDF book titled, realitybites Returns. It contains all my blog entries from where realiybites back left off up until today.

I am going to go get all of my books out of storage. Screw it if they have to be stacked floor to ceiling. That's how The Hitch displayed his fine collection.
From storage to hallway...
Stacked on marble table... gosh I miss my bookshelves...

I have decided to do another reading list with ratings for 2013. My 2012 reading list is now closed--no new books will be added. Last year I read forty books. Not too shabby.
Just like last year, this will be an ongoing list--to be updated regularly. I will give each book a rating of one to four points. And I will only list books which I have read in their entirety. Below the list of books I have read so far, is a list of books that I am currently reading. Once each is read, I will...
*Update May 8, 2013: I am failing miserably at following through with my fiction reading goal. I have fallen back into my old, comfortable ways. When I have the time, I am reading non-fiction exclusively. Old habits die hard. I think I should just give it a rest. We only have so much leisure time in our lives. Instead of feeling guilty for not reading fiction, perhaps I should just accept the fact that I prefer non-fiction. And that is OK.
I never, ever make New Year's resolutions. If I...
In just a few weeks, it will be eight years since I started my blog at Solo. I really can't believe I stayed committed to writing in it for all these years. In 2011, my blog was published as a book in both electronic and print formats. But much of what had been written in the earlier years didn't make the cut. So over the next two weeks, I am going to recycle some of my older posts.
The first one I'd like to share is from November 2, 2007--five years ago.
The second one is from September...
These are the latest and greatest kibbles and bits that I am devouring at the moment...
The Big Bang Theory
I just started watching this hilarious television show. Right now I am a third of the way through season two. Yes, I have indulged in another series binge watch. Towards the end of season one, I began to wonder if this show could continue to be interesting. Sheldon's character seemed to have the potential of becoming redundant. But I took a day off from watching. And my interest...
Hey guys. To celebrate my acquisition of a newer model Kindle, I have created a second follow-up book titled realitybites back. Pretty clever name eh? This eBook is a collection of my blog writings over the last year and a half.
Anyhow, I am giving it away for free in PDF format. It has images and links. You can read it on your PC or reading device. Looks great on my new Kindle--old model did not support PDF's very well. To download book, click HERE. File was too large to attach here. So it...
