I did a bit of shopping this week to expand the pile of unread books. If Woin is going to make us all unemployed, I might as well have something handy to pass the time. Or, I can burn the library a book at a time to keep warm over winter.
First up, Heaven and Earth by Ian Plimer. A steal at $39.95, including postage, direct from the publisher.
The rest came from Amazon:
House to House - about the battle for Faluja
Our Culture, what's left of it - I love Theodore Dalrymple.
In fact, I like his so much, I also bought:
Life at the Bottom: The Worldview That Makes the Underclass
Romancing Opiates: Pharmacological Lies and the Addiction Bureaucracy
Then there is the one I am really looking forward to reading:
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto
I heard today (on a week old podcast) that they have now printed a million copies of Liberty and Tyranny, and it has been number 1 on the New York Times for 4 weeks. Someone apart from me must be buying it. Flipping hell - there are over 1,000 reader reviews of it on Amazon, most of them giving it 5 stars.
Then we have Mark Steyn:
America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It
I also slipped a novel into the order, just for kicks. It's by an author I have never heard of, but it looked interesting.
