    The book I'm currently "reading" (which is a loose term, since I'm reading it non-linearly and very slowly) is: Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion.

    It covers all of his television shows (and I have not finished all of them, hence the skipping) and is quite insightful for any Whedon fan. It also covers his comics, for anyone who might be interested in that section as well.

    Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace

    Genealogy of Morals - Nietzsche

    On Certainty - Wittgenstein.

    I found I can't finish a book if I'm only reading one book at a time because I'll inevitably dump it for something else so I picked different books for different needs.

    Infinite Jest is my novel, Genealogy is my philosophy book, and Certainty is my bus-book.

    Certainty is written in bullet points and each bullet point lasts for, at most, three to five sentences, although they're normally only one or two sentences long. As a result I can pick it up and put it down whenever I need to without having to worry about where I am in the book—it's perfect for short bus rides and the time before class.

    the worm ouroboros by e..r eddison. it's a pulpy fantasy novel that influenced the lord of the rings. so far, it is very outsized and silly, but not bad.

    Rez Life: An Indian's Journey Through Reservation Life (David Breuer.) The history of and profiles of people in reservations in northern Minnesota

    Coffee is Good for You: From Vitamin C and Organic Foods to Low-Carb and Detox Diets, the Truth about Diet and Nutrition Claims (Robert J. Davis) Summarizes current knowledge about dozens of dietary questions. Given the scope of the book, it must necessarily must gloss over a lot of things, but while a little on the light side I don't think he dumbs things down too badly. Comes across pretty even-handed, too.

    Just started two books, not too far into them at all:

    1. North for the Harvest: Mexican Workers, Growers, and the Sugar Beet Industry (Jim Norris). All about the rise of the sugarbeet industry in northern Minnesota and North Dakota.
    2. Lords of the Harvest: Lords Of The Harvest: Biotech, Big Money, And The Future Of Food (Dan Charles)

    Apparently all book titles these days need colons. And I used to read fiction.
