I love my grandmother. Awhile back I got an email from her informing me that she had read through my Amazon wish list, and that she had some books on it, as well as others she thought I might be interested in. Now, you have to understand I never expected anyone to read that list. I use it as a place to keep track of books that catch my eye. It’s up to over 800 books.
Anyway, I received her Hanukah present today. Four books, two of which I’ve opened. The Life of the Mind, by Hannah Arendt; and Genes, Peoples, and Languages by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza (whew!). I don’t recall adding either of these to my wish list, but they look darned interesting all the same. Yay for brain food!
