John’s Reading Report (September 2007)

October 2, 2007

Here’s what I’ve read since my last report:
Making up the Mind: How the Brain Creates Our Mental World, Chris Frith.
The Man Who Sold the Moon, Robert Heinlein.
In progress:
Stumbling on Happiness, Daniel Gilbert.
Consciousness Explained, Daniel C. Dennett. This one is great, but a slow read. I keep re-reading sections to make sure I’m digesting them right.
On Deck:
God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, Christopher Hitchens.
Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, Douglas R. Hofstadter.
Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain–and How it Changed the World, Carl Zimmer.
About seven months’ worth of Analog magazine. (I read two issues this past month!)
