I miss books

I've spent the summer reading magazines (few more weighty than US weekly) and the interweb. and finally finishing up Jane Jacobs. which is a reversal for me. when I was in high school and college, I used to read a book a week during the summer - I went through a fitzgerald phase, a tom robbins phase, even a henry miller phase. all the books I didn't get a chance to read while I was in school slogging through foucault and derrida (what can I say, it was the early 90s and I was an art history major).

so today I cashed in an old amazon gift certificate to stock on some books I've been meaning to read (despite the fact that I have a backlog already):

I'm trying to get away from magazines (all seven of those I'm subscribed to) to do more reading, too. I am probably the only person in my profession (public relations) to have not read The Tipping Point yet. It's on my shelves, but I just can't put Real Simple down long enough to get started. I'm also interested in reading Blink, but should probably read Tipping first.
