    Yeah I have never read it but I know the kind of stuff your talking about. The legend of the fire spirits is the exact opposite mostly its very fundamental and superstitous they still believe Jinn sit on their toilets in the middle east and if they sit on them with out asking them to move they will be punished. But they also have a section on a place from where Im from kentucky thats studies islam I cant remember the name of where they are trying to scientifically prove the existence of the jinn world in some kind of plasma from outer space or in the atmoshphere or something.

    So I have two books that I recommend as gateways into the world of conspiracy theories one is the ORIGINAL conspiracy theory book and its titled "Behold a Pale horse" supposedly the CIA said the author of this book was the most dangerous man alive and government officials ran him off the road and broke his legs and threatened to kill him at one point in time and eventually I think he was killed. You can read it for free online if you search google for read behold a pale horse its just a plain white text page but the book was published in the 70s I think. and the next book is nearly brand new and it actually had one conspiracy in it come true after it was published its called the wal mart conspiracy someone noticed government people doing strange things at old wal marts and they thought they were planning to imprison and enslave us all or something it turned out to be the illegal aliens but they were right something was going on and they published the book before they locked up all the families. the title is "The New World Order Book" author is Nick Redfern

    School: Fundamentals of Funeral Directing. Types of Funeral Services. Embalming.

    Fun: Stygian (I'm literally just starting this one). Just got done with Time's Convert. I felt like the historical bits in Time's Convert just got really long. And I kind of wish Diana had taken Marcus back for a final goodbye with his family. Maybe in a future book?

    I'm still in the middle of Heroes by Stephen Fry because I haven't been reading much lately. Next on the docket is definitely Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller though.

    I think the last time I posted in this thread I mentioned reading the first game of thrones book. Still reading it, around halfway through now. This book is so long.

    This was the book that really got me into audiobooks. I could never read them, which is really weird for me, but I could totally listen to them while working.

    The Zones of Thought series (Fire Upon the Deep, Children of the Sky, A Deepness in the Sky) by Vernor Vinge.

    If you like sweeping space opera, cultures spread out across the galaxy separated by thousands of years of travel time, well constructed alien species, and the far future of tech, these are for you. Very well done, and thought provoking.

    I wanna join the Qeng Ho!

    I need to get into audio books. I'm too lazy to sit down and read. I do enough reading everywhere else. But there are some really awesome sounding books and series out there that I want to be part of.

    I have so many suggestions! I love audiobooks, but both the book and the narration has to be engaging for me to be interested. I have an audible subscription and I love it.

    I'll type up a list if you're interested later.

    I really enjoyed The name of the wind by Patrick rothfuss, read by Nick Phodel. It took a little getting used to cause I'd read the book and had a different voice in my head But if you like fantasy I'd definitely recommend that

    We've started doing this, mostly because my husband has started listening to them at work. I suggest looking into the elibrary for your local library network, if you have one, and checking out some audiobooks on there to see if you like them. If you decide to buy some, there are a few options. You can just straight out purchase them. Amazon partners with Audible and you can buy the ebook copies and get a significant discount on the audiobook, so that's one route. Or you can sign up for a monthly plan with audible and get a free audiobook for starting. Then you get one credit a month which equals one book.

    Currently, we have the Game of Thrones series, the Mists of Avalon, most of the Harry Potter books, the Discovery of Witches series, and Gaiman's Norse Mythology series. I've listened to Anansi Boys and American Gods through the library. I've tried listening to a few self help type books as well, but couldn't get into them as audiobooks.
