Books read: February

This felt a little better, but still. 

Empire of illusion : the end of literacy and the triumph of spectacle / Chris Hedges/Toronto, Ontario : Knopf Canada, ©2009

Float your boat! : the evolution and science of sailing / Mark Denny/Baltimore : Johns Hopkins University Press, ©2009

The price of a bargain : the quest for cheap and the death of globalization / Gordon Laird/ Toronto, Ontario: McClelland & Stewart,©2009

Egon Schiele / Alessandra Comini/ New York : bG. Braziller, ©1976.

Stuffed and Starved: markets, power and the hidden battle for the world food system / Raj Patel/ Toronto : HarperCollins, ©2007

Last Words / George Carlin with Tony Hendra / New York : Free Press, ©2009

At this rate I'll only get through 60 books this year. And that seems rather low. On the other hand, I've been reading A Geography of the Canadian Economy -- yes, for pleasure-- and it's taking a long time to get through. But Carlin's bio took about 4 hours.So, more Carlin, less everything else?

Books Read: January
