Five by Five


Next week, I'm going to return to my book review series, "Five Things I Learned From..." to give you a sense of the stuff I've been reading the past year or so. Here's my tentative schedule:
  • Monday: Five Things I Learned From Messengers of Deception: UFO Contacts and Cults, by Jacques Vallée
  • Tuesday: Five Things I Learned From Militant Modernism, by Owen Hatherley
  • Wednesday: Five Things I Learned from A Trojan Feast: The Food and Drink Offerings of Aliens, Faeries, and Sasquatch, by Joshua Cutchin
  • Thursday: Five Things I Learned from America II, by Richard Louv
  • Friday: Five Things I Learned from The Marvelous Clouds: Toward a Philosophy of Elemental Media, by John Durham Peters
I could probably do another couple of these weeks of five book reviews over the next few months. Somehow I have read a lot of stuff for pleasure in the past year since quitting my stressful full-time corporate job; I offer no proof of causation or correlation here, but feel free to come to your own conclusions.

Thanks to all the folks who purchased me some of these books as gifts for my big 4-0 or otherwise.
