List five things you've been reading lately

Then tag five LiveJournal users to do the same in their own journals. Wash, rinse, repeat.

OK, here goes:

1. Steven Pinker: The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature. An extended rant against the notion that human behaviour is wholly determined by culture and infinitely malleable.

2. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide

3. J. N. Adams, The Latin Sexual Vocabulary. Used this to write a Wikipedia article.

4. Richard E. Nisbett and Dov Cohen: Culture of Honor: The Psychology of Violence in the South. A concise, cogent, and surprising analysis of what went wrong with the United States of America. Basic problem is not slavery, but the fact that too many of our ancestors herded cattle and sheep.

5. JLA Classified. With art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, whom I've liked for thirty years.

OK, now comes the hard part. I'm expected to tag five people to do the same. OK: cavalorn, darkstella, reddragdiva, violenceoflines, grignr

I don't feel like this sorta meme, so I'll put it in yours instead. Hah!

Er. I haven't been reading much of anything of late. Even online it's mostly been using the computer as a television.

What I have been doing is writing things. Mostly not safe for brane stuff for Uncyclopedia.
