Irradiated by LabRat
Some bloggers keep their Amazon wish lists public in side tabs. While the primary purpose of such things is to take advantage of the occasional spasm of generosity and general outpourings of love on the part of one’s readers, as selfish bastards we also find that it’s a great way to find books that we ourselves desire, thanks to the Magic of Similar Tastes. It’s also a less-great way to be lazy and not bother to go add such things to our own wish lists because, obviously, that book will never leave the wish list, right?
In the course of searching to re-discover one such errant title, I went clicking around and found Book I Desire Number Three Billion, which I added to the wish list as usual. Book I Desire is this: Encyclopedia Idiotica: History’s Worst Decisions and the People Who Made Them.
Amazon helpfully saw me off with their usual page-of-even-more-stuff-you want, which includes “other people who bought this item also bought…” See if you can spot the one that stood out to me.
All I can say is that must be one gnarly Sunday School.
