Unfortunately your right, beauty is skin deep but that's enough for most of us. A shame really.

Just got this book from Amazon: The Berlin Wall by Frederick Taylor. I saw it on the History Channels story about the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall and it looked interesting.

I'm reading this book now and I'm almost finished, I HIGHLY recommend it anyone that likes autobiographies, science and humor. Very enjoyable book about a scientist.

I didn't get any books for Christmas, but I do buy (and read) books for pleasure, so you're not the only one Mr. Guy.

cjhtwo and cali, I'll bet you'd both like this book: "The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York" by Deborah Blum

Very entertaining look at poisons.
