A sampling of my latest order from Amazon below. This is a pretty eclectic list as I’ve had a renewed interest in a lot of random topics lately.
- Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell. This I purchased based on its inclusion as #3 on the 100 Best Non-Fiction Books of the (20th) Century, compiled by National Review.
- Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakauer. The only other book by Krakauer I’ve read so far was Into the Wild but it was extremely moving and this new book looks like a very interesting story.
- Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel by Rolf Potts. I like traveling, but usually prefer to travel in style. Nevertheless, this book may provide some good insights.
- Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. This has been on my Amazon wish list for a long while, so I decided it had waited there long enough and bought it.
- The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World by W. Cleon Skousen. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book so we’ll see if they’re true.
- How to Take Over Teh Wurld: A LOLcat Guide 2 Winning. One of my favorite topics (taking over the world) so how could this book be bad?
