The first implementation of my new rule–if I see (or hear) a book mentioned in two different places within one week, and I haven’t read it yet, I have to buy and read it (if I want to! :smile:).

So I’ve just placed an order for Sagan and Druyan’s Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (love that one-click two-day delivery!). In this case, I saw it mentioned in two places on the same day–once in a thread on the Secular Web Forum, and then again in a terrific post on Unscrewing the Inscrutable.

Of course, with Carl Sagan’s books, this new rule is not any kind of a risk!
