Thanks for the heads-up on Radium Girls. I've put it on my list to order.

You're welcome, Lynne. I owe Becky at RA for All for that suggestion.
If you're interested in the subject personally, might I also suggest Ken Silverstein's The Radioactive Boy Scout: The Frightening True Story of a Whiz Kid and His Homemade Nuclear Reactor? It's been a long time since I read it but it was fascinating.

I'm always happy when James Patterson branches off into new genres. Not because I'm going to read his new books, because I absolutely never will do that, but it is fact that when James Patterson writes books, they sell phenomenally well and the publishers use those dollars to subsidize their less profitable (ie weird and cool) titles. So I am FOR IT. James Patterson = net gain. :p

I'm weary of the depression memoir. Or maybe I'm just depressed.

Drew--you got me--I actually laughed out loud at your comment.

I hope you are not depressed (and I hope you feel better soon if you are); I think it's entirely possible at this point to be weary of the depression memoir. I couldn't believe how much coverage that memoir got--lots of news about it last week, making me wonder if it's good. But I'll admit I don't know that I want to take it on right now.

I am such a sad, sorry, predictable sucker for motivational books. I'm sitting on my hands so I don't add more to my bursting TBR self-improvement list. (It's becoming a problem. Probably I could find a book that would cure me of it...)

I am all about the self-help and motivational books. That is, I read them, although I very rarely follow what they say (and am therefore, never really helped by my self). How silly is that? :)

Well, not the gushy, memoirish Tuesdays with Morrie-motivational books. I mean the businessy and other ones with bullet points and short chapters. MMMMmm short chapters.
