So I'm looking at my Amazon Wish List and looking at the books I have on there, gotta say, I seem to be on a quest for downers, at least in the non-fiction department. A sampling of the list:

The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much?
by Leslie Bennetts

Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies
by Jared M. Diamond

Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed
by Jared Diamond

Taken for a Ride: Detroit's Big Three and the Politics of Air Pollution
by Jack Doyle

And then there are the books I have piled on the windowsill by my bed. My "to read" piles are out of control. I've picked up a lot of cool books lately and if I manage to read half of them by the end of the year, I'll be shocked. It's a 50/50 mix of fiction and non-fiction. As soon I finish the web design book I'm on now, I'll pick out something meaty.
