What are you reading?

April 2, 2006


Emily Robbins, Kansas University graduate student, Lawrence

"I just finished 'Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith,' by Anne Lamott. It's the author's memoirs about her struggle as an author with faith and as a single Christian mother."

Bran Belglwynn, theoretical psychologist, Lawrence

"'Science of Science and Reflexivity,' by Pierre Bourdieu. It's a sociology of reflexive autopoiesis, which is self-creation using self-organization systems."

Holly Charlton, MySpace editor, Lawrence

"'Shock Value.' It's by John Waters. It's subtitled: 'A Tasteful Book About Bad Taste.' It's horribly funny."

Katy Wade, barista, Lawrence

"I'm reading 'Mission to America,' by Walter Kirn. It's about a guy who is part of this cult, and he goes out to recruit more people. It's a satire of American religion."

Adam Lott, sandwich maker, Lawrence

"I'm reading 'Herzog,' by Saul Bellow. It's about a guy who is a little too hard on himself."

I'm reading "The Elegant Universe," by Brian Greene, about how string theory might be the answer to the divide between Einstein "big world" physics and quantum physics.
