to read list...

The Marriage Plot- Jeffrey Eugenides;  third novel about the complexity of love plots that have lost meaning.
The Darwin Economy- Robert Frank; just finished The Price of Altruism - premise sounds interesting ie. Darwin's theory of fitness in selection is more accurate representation of the principles of economics than the Smith's Wealth of Nations
The Drunkard's walk - Leonard Mlodinow;  historical look at probability

Modernist Cuisine - Nathan Myrhvold; very geeky look at physics of cooking (there's a TED talk where he explains some of the techniques used in capturing the great images)

Perhaps now with a bit more travel time I read more books than last year (only 3- yikes!) Still, it's not that I've stopped reading, rather there are on average 500 posts on my reader per day to sift through, not to mention the journal articles which keep piling up... this week- I'll attempt to catch up, only to realise that the amount of reading to be done will continue to expand exponentially.

Could really do with an app that filters/curates the information I need to know. Lucky scientific papers have abstracts...
