Hitting a rich vein

It happens every now and then; my ten-books-at-a-time reading habit throws up a really good bunch, driven both by recommendation as well as randomness:

An odd collection, yes. Pure serendipity. And very pleasant indeed. Incidentally, I  tend not to write too many book reviews, on the basis that I read a great deal and therefore would not be providing any real filtering service. Recommendations, on the other had, may be of value to some of  you. If readers would like me to comment or review the books I read, then please let me know by writing to [email protected] or commenting on this post.

  1. just wanted to pass on a book rec to you: Biopiracy by Vandana Shiva. It has to do with patents in general, and patents on life specifically, though I find it is a fairly compelling case against all patents. I definitely got a lot out of it, and it seems to be relevant to the world.

    I’d love to get more book rec’s from you, as you always seem to pass on interesting ones.

  2. Thanks Gabe. I’ve read some stuff by Vandana Shiva, but so far it has been articles rather than books if I remember right. I’ve definitely NOT read the book you recommend, but I’ll soon fix that.

Let me know what you think
