    The Affair is the sixteenth book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child.Reacher is sent undercover to find out everything he can and then to vanish. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, Reacher meets local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux, who has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust each other, they reluctantly join forces. Finding unexpected layers to the case, Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission—and turn him into a man to be feared.

    Have you read Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences by John Allen Paulos? I wonder how it compares with The Drunkard's Walk.

    I have Innumeracy on my shelf, but haven't read it yet. Yeah, I would like to read it soon since there are definitely going to be some comparisons between the two books.

    I want to have Pinker's babies, but I think he's a Canadiens fan, so maybe not, lol! Good book though!

    Was I the only one who read that during the middle of the workday, looked at all the crap in my regular e-mail and thought work is turning my reading comprehension level to that of a 3rd grader?

    Found a neat website that recommends books based author or title. I tried it and the recommendations are spot on.
