books i'd like to read.

today someone saw the cover of the omnivore's dilemma, and asked me what the dilemma was.  and then he asked me what interest i had in reading about food and farming and etc.  to which i replied that i read all kinds of things.  so here are a few of the things i'd like to read:

the omnivore's dilemma: a natural history of four meals

i don't: a contrarian history of marriage

descartes' bones: a skeletal history of the conflict between faith and reason

traffic: why we drive the way we do

snark: it's mean, it's personal, and it's ruining our conversation

collapse: how societies choose to fail or succeed

the spiral staircase: my climb out of darkness

owls and other fantasies

just to name a few.  and you? what would you like to read?


  1. Wow, I have only heard of two of these! I'll have to look into them. I actually can't think right now of books I want to read...sad, but my brain is tired! I usually just go to the library/store and pick books that look interesting!

  2. i found most of these in just that way. the omnivore's dilemma is great--definitely worth a read, though it might ruin some food for you for a bit...

    i forgot to list _beyond heaving bosoms: the smart bitches' guide to romance_; just because it sounds like fun.
