Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar... Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes

Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar... Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes - Thomas Cathcart

A light, funny way to introduce yourself to the fundamentals of philosophy, or refresh what you were taught in school.  I had a really hard time not reading a lot of this out loud to MT, and while he claimed prior knowledge of a few of the jokes, they were all new to me (I think, I don't remember jokes very well).

 

If you're looking for anything resembling an in-depth look at the different schools of philosophy, this isn't the book for you, but otherwise, I'd recommend it as both entertaining and informative.
