Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Got anything good checked out of the library?

For me:

"Smoking Ears and Screaming Teeth: A Celebration of Scientific Eccentricity and Self-Experimentation" by Trevor Norton.

You know, I keep finding John Hunter in books. Ever keep finding the same random people like that?

1. Archaeology of Colorado, and Drift by Rachel Maddow.

Need to renew the first as I'm only halfway through it and it's due tomorrow. Haven't started Rachel's, yet, but I'm looking forward to it and it looks like a quick read.

2. I'm pretty sure Drift is already checked out in my library.

Popular book.

4. Lucky, lucky.



I guess I could buy it, but I've done so good not to buy any books lately. It's addicting to hoard books. In the, "but I'll know more if I drown myself in books!" way. I'm already underwater, yah know?

I've read about authors who die and leaves 5,000-20,000 books behind for people to sort through. I'll be one of those people...

6. I've scored some good titles walking by estate yard sales.

7. My experience with estate sales are cookbooks, cookbooks, and more cookbooks.

I suppose that's under non-fiction, but it's not my cup of tea.

5. Most of my books are checked out of the library.

At the moment all of my books are fiction, but I did recently read The Great Mortality by John Kelly about the Black Death. Excellent.
