Some Reading

Well, I've got some new stuff to read. Brother got me Michael Shermer's Why People Believe Weird Things and The Last Hero Discworld book.

My brother enjoyed his red Swingline stapler and matching T-shirt.

The Last Hero is the picture book about whatshisname and his Silver Horde, right? I liked that one.

Why People Believe Weird Things is awesome. It was my first real introduction to critical thinking. I can't recommend it enough, and I'm rather surprised you haven't read it yet.

Funny, I got Why People for myself (my girlfriend spent too much money for my birthday, so I kept my wishlist from her this christmas) and Hogfather the DVD. Just started Why People, but we're halfway through Hogfather, and I must say I'm impressed with how well they've rendered everything, including Pratchett's style. I knew they had it right when my girlfriend, who's never read any of the books, was immediately creeped out by Nobby.

Happy reading! You'll probably finish before I do...
