I just yesterday finished reading Predictably Irrational. Very good. Currently slogging my way through Proust and I also am rereading Guns, Germs, and Steel.

This summer I'd like to read a non-Constance Garnett translation of Crime and Punishment. And then either Moby Dick or Ulysses, both if I'm feeling ambitious. Some evolutionary theory, some Michael Lewis, and whatever else catches my fancy.

Having summers off is the best.
If you liked Cuckoo's Nest, check out "Sometimes a Great Notion." Another Kesey book, and it is freaking great.
