Odd Books


I have a wide range of interests and read books many different kinds, but most of the books I have read are the same books everyone else reads who reads that kind of book. Every once in awhile, though, I read a book that almost no one has ever heard of. The best of these will be obscure books from obscure fields, but more of them will be standard books in obscure fields, some will just be fairly ordinary books which I think deserve more attention, and a few will be books no one reads because they’re remarkably bad. Be warned: I sometimes enjoy reading dry, technical books about topics which are unfamiliar to me.

Out of touch as I am, sooner or later I will inevitably include a book here that EVERYONE knows about. But don’t argue, OK?
