    Boswell's Life of Johnson, Vol. I. (Or is it Johnson's Life of Boswell? one of the two, anyway.) I found both volumes in a box in our local charity shoppe. Published about 1790 I think. Only 1 for the two. My word, he does go rambling off down some byways, does ol' Boswell. He'll have like four lines of text at the top of the page, and then a footnote that goes off for several pages on a complete tangent, with various random bits of poetry thrown in. I thoroughly recommend it.

    Agriculture of the Hidatsa Indians: An Indian Interpretation, Gilbert L. Wilson and Buffalo Bird Woman. What I didn't realize when I picked it up is that Wilson was an early student of Albert Jenks, who founded the department I got my undergrad degree from and who I can hold personally responsible for the absolutely appalling organization of random artifacts he purchased anonymously and loaded the university's archaeology collections with. 70-some years later, I got to fix the thousands of glaring errors in that catalog. Joy.

    Also The Later Medieval City: 1300-1500 by David Nicholas and Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.

    Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed! - Katharine DeBrecht
    Help! Mom! Hollywood's in My Hamper! - Katharine DeBrecht
    Help! Mom! The 9th Circuit Nabbed the Nativity - Katharine DeBrecht

    These are HILARIOUS. If you're a conservative. I suspect liberals would dislike them intensely.

    I am the religious right. Just not the religion most people expect.

    2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck

    I'm only up to Chapter 2 but I'm amazed at how this author seems to be almost anticipating my next thoughts as I read it. Our minds must work in similar ways! Anyway, by the title I thought it was going to be another stupid book about how we're all going to die in 2 years but (so far) it's nothing like that. I suggest reading about the book before just running out and buying it, though, because it's definitely not for everyone.

    Wow, sounds like ADD before they invented all those pesky drugs to cure it :-)

    'Daily Life of the Egyptian Gods' by Dimitri Meeks & Christine Favard-Meeks. Very, very cool.
