I've been reading

And you should, too. Here's some stuff I think you should read:

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner - Don't let the economist in the title scare you off. Ever wondered if Sumo wrestlers cheated? They'll tell you.

102 Minutes : The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn - I couldn't stop reading this book that gives a minute by minute account of what was going on inside the WTC on 9/11. It's filled with little moments of humanity and horror.

Blink : The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell - I'm a huge fan of Gladwell and this book will remind you that you knew what you knew all along, you just needed to remember that you knew it.

Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk - A strange and crazy novel about a poem that kills. Think about it for a second. What if there was something that if you heard it, it would kill you? Scary isn't it?

And one book you shouldn't read.

Citizen Girl by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus - Pure crap from the authors of The Nanny Diaries.

Holy Crap... 'Lullaby' was pretty damn good.

Chuck Palahniuk is one seriously twisted writer, as if 'Fight CLub' didn't prove that. Plus he's from Portland. You can't beat that -- twisted and from Portland. And no... they don't always go together.

I totally found myself looking at people oddly after I read that book. I kept thinking that it was probably best that I never learned the culling poem...
