It's fun to dig around the Internet and turn up some new books. Here are a few nonfiction titles that piqued my curiosity. Any feedback is welcome, since I've not seen a one of them. (Some of these may be due out later in the year.) I hope the inter-library loan system is ready for a big batch of requests.
