    Becoming Batman by E. Paul Zehr.

    It talks about how a normal person can become Batman (with an unlimited budget, of course) from a scientific perspective. Informative and fun read.

    This is Water by David Foster Wallace. Commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005.

    Everyone should read it.

    ^^^Kagan is great.

    I am reading Margaret Atwoods's Orynx and Crake. Just fabulous. It makes me want to read Gulliver's Travels again.

    Ooops, didn't scroll though earlier and notice Onion posted the book earlier.

    Quite entertaining through the first few chapters

    So I went to buy Game Change, as I thought it came out yesterday. Apparently it came out Monday, and is sold out everywhere. I was told they are doing a second run though, and should have it again soon.

    So instead of that, I picked up these. So apparently, I like really like "rogue" writers (see the covers [​IMG])

    Just finished reading Story of The Eye. Dear god Georges Bataille had a fucked up imagination. Which I like.
