Future Hit List

lead_720_405There are actually a few titles on last month’s list of suggestions to try that I added to my own private list for reading in the near future. Which ones? Well, one is very fat, one is pretty funny in a twisted way, and at least two have been hanging around way too long and need to be read.

I note that more and more non-fiction titles are making the daily suggest list, despite the fact that there is no such thing as non-fiction. As I think about it, these non-fiction books are attractive to me because of their ability to teach us new things. Of course this can only follow after fiction has taught us how to think in the first place.
