you should tell us what books you end up purchasing!

Several of Terry Pratchett's Discworld books I haven't read yet (including Hogfather and Mort, two that have been highly recommended to me), a handful of Iain M. Banks' "Culture" novels, including Use of Weapons, which I don't own a copy of; and a novel called Altered Carbon, a transhumanist murder mystery by Richard K. Morgan. The last one I found completely by accident in the Amazon "recommended reading" list, and it seemed interesting, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Most of the books on my bookshelf are nonfiction, so this order is a bit unusual in that it's entirely fiction.

Did you read Sean Carrol's book, Endless Forms Most Beautiful? It's one I use to teach about evolution.

I haven't! My favorite book on evolutionary biology is Richard Dawkins' amazing The Blind Watchmaker. I'll have to check it out!

And, if you're into sex, there's really interesting research about Sociobiology concepts applied to human sexuality. But, I haven't found any good, single book for lay readers yet. Hmm.

"I lust realized..."

Is that supposed to be a pun? Are you buying porn over there at amazon?

Argh! Curse spell checkers that can't grok context!
