Dirty Minds by Kayt Sukel. This book explores the neurochemistry behind love. It examines why women fall for bad boys, why marriages suffer after the birth of a child, how early neglect may lead to promiscuity, etc. Truly fascinating stuff.
If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.
I bought Runaway Horses by Yukio Mishima a couple of years ago. When I found out it was the second book of a tetralogy, I bought the first, Spring Snow, and decided to read it before I jumped at Runaway Horses.
About three years later, I'm finally almost finished with Spring Snow. The prose is good but... The story's halting at times. Runaway Horses seems to promise more fire and blood. /7w8
Also read Sun and Steel by the same guy. Really fascinating writer.
My dog is so sweet. Rumor has it, I read a book about how to train a dog to politely beg and do cute tricks. Since I haven't read the rumored book, I am obviously a natural dog whisperer and must begin writing my own book. I feel it is my duty to share this special gift.
