I noticed a month or so ago that the local Barnes & Noble had added an "Atheism" shelf to its Philosophy section. Given that I'm situated deep in the heart of the Bible Belt I was pleased to see atheism getting some fair representation in the store, hopefully reflective of a growing interest in the subject.
Now if only they'd start carrying Michael Martin's Atheism: A Philosophical Justification, which I feel should be standard in such a section.
