What can you tell about a person by the books he or she reads?

Who knows? But here's what I ordered from last night:

Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century Howard Bloom; Paperback; CDN$ 16.05

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From the Frontiers of Brain Science Norman Doidge; Hardcover; CDN$ 15.50

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything Christopher Hitchens; Hardcover; CDN$ 16.49

The first was because my great friend Pat Forde recommended it when I was at his place on Friday; the second because Norman and I were on TVOntario's The Agenda a couple of weeks ago; the third because it was much discussed by people in Kitchener on Friday, and Martin Levin wrote about it in his column in the Books section of yesterday's Globe and Mail. Also, did didn't hurt that has both the Doidge and the Hithcens at 50% off right now, because they're best-sellers.
