The Call of the Wild was a very entertaining book.

Is this supposed to be some twisted form of mental BDSM?

Love Eric Gill's work. The more I find out about him, though, the more I wish I just knew his work.

Since I was born a Star Wars Fangirl, I love everything about the Galaxy far,far away (except JarJar Binks,of course ). So, it just makes sense that I´ve read ALL Star Wars Books that have ever been released...right now I´m in the middle of this one here:
Star Wars - Fate of the Jedi 04

Takes place in the era 45 years after the Battle of Yavin....Great book. But aren´t they all great somehow?
To me they are )

What It Takes-Richard Ben Cramer Got a lot of newfound respect for Bob Dole and the other candidates. You have to be pretty driven to make it as a presidential candidate.

I blame Fringe for the second one. Maybe it's that I want to be Peter Bishop. Or, more accurately, maybe it's that I want to be having sex with Anna Torv.

I feel any slightly masochistic economist must read this at one part of their lives.

I have a copy sitting on my shelf (or at least I used to)...not sure I have actually read it.

Definitely read sections of it but probably not the whole thing.

Currently reading What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell, as well as Thinking Strategically by Dixit and Nalebuff.

I have to say What the Dog Saw, while interesting and worth reading, is definitely my least favorite of his books (though admittedly I've only read the Tipping Point and Blink).

I'm not really far enough in Thinking Strategically to have any opinion.

Also, I was considering reading Switch by the Heath brothers next, but would like some opinions on it if anyone here has read it. From what I've seen they tend to have a similar writing style to Malcolm Gladwell (whom I like quite a bit). Also wondering how people think Switch compared to Made to Stick if you've read them both.

^^^Outliers seems like it had the most original content in it, so I liked that best. Blink was not very focused, but still okay. Right now I'm reading: Everyone add me on Shelfari, please http://www.shelfari.com/o1514159703
