    Economic Facts and Fallacies by Thomas Sowell. I can't seem to put this book down.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Murder on the Links - Agatha Christie
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    I'm reading several books at the moment but most of my attention is focused on "Number: The Language of Science" by Tobias Dantzig.

    It's about the evolution of numbers and mathematics and "the history of thought", says Charles Seife. It goes from simple counting systems to relatively modern mathematics (relative to my book's edition revision date, circa 1953). The reading is moderately slow going for me, since I'm not exactly math person, but the book's main content is simple enough for a noob like me to understand (as long as you have a dictionary handy to look up math terms the author expects you to know). The appendices, however, pretty much escape me (all technical stuff).

    Depends on which second of the day you ask me, because I think the collective number has surpassed twenty. Right now it's... Hm. I appear to have forgotten the title. Uh, it's some sort of math book about symmetry. Either that or it's a science book about mummies. Or quite possibly a French book about dragons. Heh, evidently I'm not thinking straight at the moment. Oh well. It's one of the three.

    Default "The History of Childhood", by Lloyd deMause

    I've been reading, "The History of Childhood". I don't quite know what to make of it. What do you think?

    Budgerigars by Georg A. Radtke. Saw it at the library book sale. Sort of an impulse buy since I have no interest in ever owning a parakeet. I just thumb through before going to bed. I especially love that a young child had written in pencil on the first page their name and in capitalized letters "BELONGS TO ME AND NO ONE ELSE!"

    Neuro-linguistic Programming for Dummies. Got interested in this after reading about PUA.

    I've been re-reading and thinking about a few poems. I tend to read one or two poems several times over the course of a week. Poetry is difficult for me to understand at first but I like it. I'm drawn to the poem "Believing in Iron" by Yusef Komunyakaa right now.

    I finally finished reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. The Fountainhead reminded me of several movies from the 1930's I've seen. I guess Ellsworth Toohey was a good section since it helped me view things a little differently. I want to read something by Friedrich Nietzsche next because I'd like to learn more about master-slave morality.
