Bookshelf Update

I created the bookshelf on my sidebar a few weeks ago as a way to prioritize my reading. I wanted to complete my virtual bookshelf before I allowed myself to be enticed by other titles. Alas. I have not managed to trick myself as effectively as I had hoped. I am a sucker for suggestions--especially impassioned ones. I am also a sucker for a good cover and pithy summary on the book jacket.

I have finished several of the books on my bookshelf and intended to create a blog entry for each one. This is not going to happen. Not enough time, mostly. Also some of the books were good, but didn't inspire me to go further or deeper this time around.

I will post the titles I have already read here as a way to store them in my virtual memory in case I revisit them one day.

If you have read any of these, feel free to comment! Or if you are curious about a title, let me know and I can give you my impressions...

Hello. I came across this post while doing a google search for "Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious by Timothy D. Wilson". Interesting that you mention it; it's not a real common book. Looks like it might be good and I was thinking of buying it so I thought I'd ask: is worth a read? If you don't mind sharing your thoughts on it (or what you remember, seeing that you read it some time ago), I'd love to hear them.
