My book shelves over-floweth even as I visit the library. Here I list books I've read or plan to read. (Please share your thoughts.) I expect there will be other recommendations -- CDs, movies, etc., added later.

[Hmmmmm...where are Mark Crispin Miller and Thom Hartmann? Better go over to Peace Hugs  and learn more about my current reading. This will be updated soon, after some family time.]
