sore lower back – ouch! and the selfish gene

I came home from work today after spending half an hour lying on my back under my desk. Now I’m sitting in bed with really sore lower back pain. I should probably be lying on my back but after doing that for the last few hours I got bored!

I’m currently reading the Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins (I’m up to page 28) and I’m enjoying re-learning the biology I learnt at school but have since forgotten. I’m hoping to know all about evolution and biology when I finish (well maybe ‘all about’ from one book isn’t possible, but I’ll know a lot more than before).

I really want to read more nonfiction this year. And I decided I had to stop buying books so I went and requested a heap of books at my local library and I now have nine books waiting for me! I may have gotten a little carried away with the requesting. I seriously thought about going home via the library today to pick up the nine books but decided it probably wasn’t a good idea to carry a huge sack of books home with a sore back! Wow, I’m so sensible.

Anyway, I’d better get off the internet and lie down flat again I suppose.

    hey Carmy, not sure how much of Dawkins you have read, but I’d love to know what you think of this article responding in part to Dawkins stuff on the God Delusion http://books.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,,2265395,00.html
