Thanks!! I kind of wish people couldn't just throw anything up there, like "Commodity Options" or voting for their own book like the "True Competition" one, given they have nothing to do with human rights, gah!! I look forward to your own contributions. :)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) It seems a few books have crept onto the list that are not "nonfiction" by any definition ("The Glass Bead Game" and "The Iliad"). Erin, would you like the list to be pruned back to "nonfiction only?"

If that's possible, most certainly!

The Glass Bead Game
