12 Down, 38 to Go

Due to my vacation, I didn't post on these, so:

Common Sense 101 (book review forthcoming) - 4 Stars
Brave New Family (just read it) - 5 Stars
Asterix the Gaul (comic-book review forthcoming) - 5 stars
St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis (one volume; just read 'em) - 5 Stars
The Third World War (book review forthcoming) - 5 Stars
Eat the Rich, by P. J. O'Rourke - 4 Stars.

Also, I am working through The Wealth of Nations, a book worth reading if you can stomach it. (Adam Smith devotes pages to the price of corn in the 17th Century. How bloody exciting.) However, if you ever wondered what controls the price of silver, how to clarify how much of the milk's cost goes to rent, or how shaving your silver shillings would affect the English economy, read it.
