Thought to book

I've been giving a little more thought to my rather off-the-cuff list of "books that changed the way I think", in order to expand a bit on what that designation means to me, and whether (and if so, how) they really did change my way of thinking. Since I started writing this, livredor has also taken up the subject, and her own selection makes for interesting reading; do read it, and not just because she's so complimentary about me!

In summary: I've read a lot. I've thought about a lot of things. There is almost certainly a correlation.

There are books to be read, and thoughts to be thunk, and miles to go before I sleep.
