skjam: from Heavenly Nostrils (Unicorn)
Hi folks!

This time we'll look at what Goodreads recommends based on my "Religion & Philosophy" shelf. Here I put religious texts, philosophical works, books with heavy religious or philosophical themes, and works where a religious figure or philosopher is the main character.

I think some of these wander far afield from the subjects of philosophy and religion, to be honest. As always, let me know if you've read any of these, or heard interesting buzz.
