1. The Welfare Nanny Diaries by Rinku Sen and Gabriel Thompson.
2. Everyone's all excited about "neuroeconomics" these days. I am always skeptical about such things, but can't help but find it interesting, so Why say no to free money? caught my eye.
3. I haven't seen the first episode of this season of Battlestar Gallactica yet, but am viewing it (Tivoed) at a friend's this evening. It's hard not to think about it and, therefore, want to read about it, but I'm trying to be a better spoiler-avoider. I was happy to see this spoiler-free Geeking out to Gallactica to quench my thirst for the moment.
