Catching up on my Books

I just realized I missed posting my March and April books so here we gooo....

March I read something....hmmmm, oh yeah...
THIS ONE:
SUPER FREAKONOMICS by Levitt & Dubner.
I loved it.  But I loved the first Freakonomics book so I knew I would.  It's just a lot of really interesting true facts and how they effect economics today or in the past. 
A breakdown of what's covered:

Introduction: Putting the Freak in Economics

Chapter 1: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa?
Chapter 2: Why should suicide bombers buy life insurance?
Chapter 3: Unbelievable stories about apathy and altruism
Chapter 4: The fix is in---and it's cheap and simple
Chapter 5: What do Al Gore and Mount Pinatubo have in common?



OK, onto April.  That one was a bit more disturbing.

NEXT BOOK.... something a little more uplifting.
