I would have thought your first several books would all be Ann Coulter's collected works!

I still read the ones made of paper. I am so far behind in my reading, I doubt I'll sever catch up. I'm about halfway through Glenn Beck's "Arguing with Idiots", and I still have Jonah Goldberg's "Liberal Fascism, and Sarah Palin's "Going Rouge" on the shelf waiting for me to crack them open.

Not to mention the fiction--Two "Monk" novels that I put somewhere and now don't remember where they are, and my wife has bought some novels that look interesting that she hasn't had time to read, etc. ..

Ann hasn't come out with a book in awhile. I have them.

That "Arguing with Idiots" is an impressive book. I ordered it from Amazon and when I looked it it, it had the shape of e a high school textbook. And then I opened it up and discovered why. It SHOULD be a high school textbook.
