Sunday Salon

This week, while traveling, I managed to finish Mistakes Were Made. It was a great book on cognitive dissonance and how it causes us to justify our opinions contrary to evidence and objectionable behavior. I would highly recommend it: 4 1/2 out of 5.

I also managed to get halfway through both Cloud Atlas and The Lais of Marie de France. Cloud Atlas is really good so far. I have become quite engaged by each of the six stories that make up the novel.

Finally, I added Wheelock's Latin to my library. I probably won't make much use of it, but I have always wanted to learn to read Latin.
