Book # 34: Denialism: How Irrational thinking hinders scientific progress, harms our planet, and threatens our lives.
Author: Michael Spector
A fun book that smacks the idiots about. Idiots can be defined by their unwavering belief that the plural of anecdote is data.
Book # 35: Kindred in Death
Author: JD Robb
Another chronicle into the life of Eve Dallas, kick ass future cop and her merry band of friends, as they solve crimes.

My favorite is Eve’s husband Roark, the most handsome and richest man on the planet and beyond, possessing the Irish accent and the orgasm giving stare that all women love. As Mrs. Kensington** would say, “All men want to be him, all women want to be with him.”
Book # 36: Homeland
Author: Sam Lipsyte
Former High School loser writes an extremely honest monthly email update for his graduating class ten years on. A different sort of book.

Not his usual love death porn he is famous for. You know – let me create the greatest love story ever known and then let me kill it off so it fails. A decent story and at the end SPOILER ALERT they get to have happy ever after.

**Anyone recognize who Mrs. Kensington is?
