    Picked up some books on Mesopotamia yesterday. One of them a series of lectures on how the original civilization came to be (very interesting), and a few other basic histories. Also read through a history of Rastafarianism this afternoon.

    How to Change Your Mind, by Michael Pollan, and Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error by Kathryn Schulz.
    Do human beings have free will? I can't decide.

    On a Pale Horse, by Piers Anthony. My wife is re-reading it as well at the same time. We're considering reading the entire Incarnations series.

    I read those a long time ago. I think “On a Pale Horse” and “For Love of Evil” were the best of the series.

    Picked up two new ones from the library yesterday:

    Sexual Behavior in the Human Female

    Daily Life in China on the Eve of the Mongol Invasion


    I read a bit of both of them last night and was impressed by the former, done by Kinsey. I wasn't expecting something with so much rigor and depth, but it looks like he really went the full mile with his study.

    I Passed for White (1955) by Reba Lee. Published when I was one year old. A time capsule of race relations from the still-remembered past.

    Got about 100 pages deep into this one over the past few days. I was shocked at how developed a Chinese city was in the 13th century. Not too dissimilar from modern times, except sans oil and electricity.

    Recently finished Sujata Massey's The Sleeping Dictionary. Massey is excellent with protagonists who seem to be betwixt and between various levels of social standing, whether it be classes or cultures.

    Just started a complete collection of Dorothy Sayers short stories.
