Reading list

I was running low on books so off to Borders. Great deals on books! Got five for just over $50. Here is what I'll be reading over the next few weeks:

AWOL on the Appalachian Trail - David Miller -2003 account of Millers hike from Georgia to Maine.

The Sex Lives of Cannibals - J Maarten Troost - "the laugh out-loud true story of a harrowing and hilarious two-year odyssey in the distant South pacific island nation of Kirabah-possibly the worst place on Earth".

Physics of the impossible - Michio Kaku - A scientific exploration into the world of phasers, force fields, teleportation, and time travel.

The year of living Biblically - A.J. Jacobs - "one man's humble quest to follow the Bible as literally as possible".

blink - Malcolm Gladwell - "The power of thinking without thinking"...."Drawing on cutting edge neuroscience and psychology to reveal that the difference between good decision making and bad has less to do with how much information we process than with our ability to focus on a few particulart details".

Getting stoned with savages - J Maarten Troost - A trip through the islands of Fiji and Vanuatu
