    David Sedaris's podcasts are hilarious, too. It's great to hear his own voice reading his stuff.

    One Mind, by Larry Dossey, MD. About the collective consciousness, I think. I've barely started reading.

    Cure - about how our illnesses are shaped by our minds. Lots of interesting research on placebo effect.
    Good Life Lab - about a youngish couple who leave their NYC jobs and move to New Mexico to lead "intentional" lives.

    Finished Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra. Memoir of how she and her 4 siblings grew up with an alcoholic mentally unstable mother. (I don't say "raised by" because they really had to raise themselves.) They all managed to survive and are now functioning adults, although still carrying the scars.
    I'm always interested in true stories of those who manage to overcome their harsh circumstances, and in this case it was interesting to read how the foster system can both help and hurt in these situations.
