Comments for On My Wishlist: November 26, 2011

On My Wishlist: November 26, 2011: 11/26/11

On My WishlistI finished reading A Cat Named Squeeky and Bloody Jack. I should get back to reading Schenectady by Don Rittner. I am currently reading Swish: My Quest to Become the Gayest Person Ever by Joel Derfner; it's actually a sweet, albeit frank, memoir.

Much of my free time reading has been tied up in homework and Nanowrimo. I've finished Nanowrimo for this year but I've still got some big assignments up in the air.

My wishlist is at 991 books, up 5 books from last week.

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • The Book of Tomorrow by Cecilia Ahern
  • Of all the stupid things by Alexandra Diaz
  • The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
  • The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
  • One amazing thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
  • Penny Dreadful by Laurel Snyder
  • Empire State: A Love Story (or not) by Jason Shiga
  • Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa
  • Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin
  • The Storm in the Barn by Matt Phelan
  • Sarah Emma Edmonds was a Great Pretender: The True Story of a Civil War Spy by Carrie Jones
  • Imagine a Day by written by Sarah L. Thomson

The Featured Wish for November 26, 2010:

cover artBrain Storm by Rebecca M. Jordan-Young

"In this compelling book, Rebecca Jordan-Young takes on the evidence that sex differences are hardwired into the brain. Analyzing virtually all published research that supports the claims of 'human brain organization theory,' Jordan-Young reveals how often these studies fail the standards of science. Even if careful researchers point out the limits of their own studies, other researchers and journalists can easily ignore them because brain organization theory just sounds so right. But if a series of methodological weaknesses, questionable assumptions, inconsistent definitions, and enormous gaps between ambiguous findings and grand conclusions have accumulated through the years, then science isn't scientific at all.

"Elegantly written, this book argues passionately that the analysis of gender differences deserves far more rigorous, biologically sophisticated science. 'The evidence for hormonal sex differentiation of the human brain better resembles a hodge-podge pile than a solid structure. Once we have cleared the rubble, we can begin to build newer, more scientific stories about human development.'"

I read and enjoyed Pink Brain, Blue Brain by Lise Eliot and Proust and the Squid by Maryanne Wolf and this one sounds interesting.

Pussreboots

I know. But I've read 150 books off my wishlist, so things could be a lot worse.
