I’ve added a little “Amazon Wish List” widget over on the sidebar, but NOT as a cheap attempt people to buy stuff for me. I’m trying to amass my own library of knowledge, mostly through ordering a few books at a time off my wishlist, and there’s everything in there from books so popular that they’re being sold for $0.01 to late 19th century monographs going for hundreds of dollars; if you’re looking to beef up your own library and have similar tastes you might find something of interest. Even beyond that, I usually share my thoughts of what I’m been reading lately and the wishlist icon is an easy way to pop online, look at my “purchased” books, and get yourself a copy if you’re so inclined. Anyway, if you’re bored it’s a way to kill time and maybe stumble across something actually worth reading.
Update: Warning: In the nether regions of the wish lists there resides pockets of woo, the “Forbidden Zone” (sorry, watching Planet of the Apes last night) of the list, if you will. I probably am not going to buy any of those books, but they’re on there so I can keep track of what nutty stuff has been published in case I need to reference later (i.e. Bonnie Norton’s Keiko Speaks, The Evolution of a Creationist etc.); if I’m going to pay for toilet-paper it’s going to be the nice fluffy kind. There are a few woo-laden texts in the “highest” and “high” priority categories (like the book about “Ropen”, or pterosaurs in New Guinea), but those are in there because they’re rare and I take some amount of pride in being able to name where certain wacky assertions come from. Anyway, if you want to see the best stuff, sort by “priority”, otherwise it’ll be just a mish-mash of books I added as I came across them.
