When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Didja read it? 
I'm still working through the latest from Bart Ehrman (excellent, of course), but that one is on my list.  Enjoyed his End of Faith, as well as the subsequent pamphlet that followed, Letter to a Christian Nation. 

I don't believe in free will now.  Will it be worth reading?

I'm bouncing back and forth between a few books at present. Haven't started this one but is only 70 or so pages long.

Ya, a book in the bedroom, a book at work, and a book in the bathroom.

Two eyes, but I can only read 1 book at a time.  Evolution takes a long time.
