I am weak.

Someone brought in some curry for lunch, and the reheated smell was in the air.
I went out to Indian lunch buffet.

It really is a cause and effect.

I am thinking I need to grab some more non fiction in my book reading. I am not accustomed to thinking of non fiction, having been a pretty big fan of scifi and fantasy fiction, but I've listened to a small handful of non fictions now, and it's been a very different, but very rewards experience.

The problem is that I am not sure what I want to focus upon. Do I want to find a niche, and get several books on that niche for contrasting views? Do I want to get a few well known best sellers covering a wider ground for the variety? Do I want more philosophical subjects, or more hard facts and figures like a biography or historical account?

I just got the audio book for "The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values" by Sam Harris after hearing a lot about it, but that's obviously playing to my bias. I may want to stretch myself a little as well. Canadian history? Broadway history? Something on comparative religions? Something tech related maybe?

Not sure where to start...or where to continue considering I technically have started (barely).
