Though a lot of the progress is invisible, since I have the stupid habit of starting a book, reading a bit, starting another, reading a bit, starting a book, etc...
To give an idea, here's the list of titles I have currently open to one extent or another (not to count the two I've finished, but haven't gotten around to posting about yet)
- "Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky
- "Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs" by Chuck Klosterman
- "The Left Hand of God" by Michael Lerner
- "The Republican War On Science"
- "Soul of the Samurai" by Thomas Cleary
- "The Sling and the Stone"
- "Cobra II" by Michael Gordon
- "A Feast for Crows" by George R.R. Martin
- "A History of Warfare" by John Keegan
- "American Theocracy" by Kevin Phillips
- "A Death in Belmont" by Sebastian Junger
- "To Hate Like This Is to be Forever Happy: A Thoroughly Obsessive, Intermittently Uplifting, and Occasionally Unbiased Account of the Duke-North Carolina Basketball Rivalry" by Will Blythe
And then there are those just on 'top' of the pile (or en route)
- "Wealth and Democracy: A Political History of the American Rich" by Kevin Phillips
- "A Conflict of Visions" by Thomas Sowell
- "The Demon-Haunted World" by Carl Sagan
- "Crashing the Gates" by Kos
- "How Would a Patriot Act?" by Glenn Greenwald
- "Blink" & "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell
- "Blue Blood: Duke-Carolina: Inside the Most Storied Rivalry in College Hoops by Art Chansky
Not to mention any old title that pings my interest on my next pass through B&N or Borders.
So, apparently, I've got some work to do...
