Some new books!

Good news everyone!  I recently took a ride down to my local Barns & Nobel to pick up quite a few books.
I had read in my past a book called "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson and needed my own copy.  I probably spent about $150 on books.  Among which I bought 4 of Stephen Hawking's books, including his new book "The Grand Design"
I am only about 24 page into it, but I must say that I am enjoying it thoroughly.  You do need to know some prerequisites, such as string theory being revised to become M theory and such.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, simply because I cannot keep my nose out of this book for very long.

  1. I can't read Hawking anymore. He's becoming too centered on his own work and does little comparative research.
