1-  i'm a stranger here myself- bill bryson
2- oh crap!  Potty Training: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do It Once and Do It Right- jamie glowacki
3- sideshow usa: freaks and the american cultural imagination-  rachel adams

4- bhagavad gita- translated and commentary by ac bhaktivedanta swami prabhupada- this guy is not a party animal.  even though he hung out with george harrison.  no, he's just a devotee of an impossible way to live.  complete detachment from the material world.  of the seven hundred verses in the bhagavad gita, he supplied roughly a page of commentary.  lots of repetition.  which was actually useful.  made important principles stick.  he said that was the point.  but what he said made a lot of sense.  i'm gonna read a less hardcore translation of the gita and hopefully come out a lot less scarred 

i'll tell ya about it someday

5-lord of light- roger zelazny- when i read the jacket i laughed.  in a colony planet a group of men gained control of technology and become immortal fashioning themselves after the Hindu pantheon of gods.  it seems i'm going to question what i just read already.  i said that to my wife and she chuckled as well.  i don't get if zelazny was trying to make some kind of point or was just telling a story.  it's a fine book, though action sequences with religious overtones were a bit much for me
