Look at what I got...



I actually got it a couple of days ago, but with travelling and having cleverly hidden my USB cables all over the place, I decided not to mention it until now. This is of course the version that Synaptyx published, with the hilarious quotes (no, really) provided on the back.




As you can see, I also decided to get my NeoCon on with this selection from Bloom, Strauss and Schmitt. Nothing like reading philosophy you almost but don't quite agree with, especially when it impinges on contemporary issues.



But since the philosophy books not only ruin my counterculture credentials, but are also deadly dull in many ways, I have the above to keep me entertained. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have rather a lot of reading to do...

It's a bloody great edition of the Principia. Except the first outroduction is shit.

I'm having fun targeting customers to hand-sell it too. Corrupting young minds and all that.

As to the rest of your reading selection: it's a damned good thing I'm so self assured or I'd feel a bit guilty about my Simon R. Green brain-candy.

FACT: I spent Christmas reading Raymond E Feist's Riftwar books. Tasty mediocre fantasy :D

LOL! Good to know you're not all serious healthy brain food.

Have you ever read Green's Nightside series? Really fast reads, dark, violent and fun.
