Help, the books are taking over!!!
Books currently creeping up into my bed:

The Grunch of Giants by Buckminster Fuller
Authoritarianism by Hannah Ahrendt
Superstud: Or How I Became a 24-year-old Virgin by Paul Feig

As well as several writing books from the list you created a while back Chip.
My wife has trouble accepting the bibliomania that has created an unsafe situation in the narrow path between my side of the bed and the wall.
Such is life.
Thanks for the blog Chip. Take care.


Thanks, Paul. I love Chabon's work, so any collection edited by him is worth adding.
