So, I'm leaving tomorrow for Phoenix, NM, for the Association of Behavior Analysis International conference. It's going to be a long trip, so I hit up Librivox to get something to listen to and learn from along the way.

Here is what I have selected.

The Bhagavad Gita
The Communist Manifesto
The Art of War
Benjamin Button
Alice in Wonderland
Selected Short Stories by H. P. Lovecraft
Dead Men Tell No Tales
Japanese Fairytales


Sadly, I probably won't have enough time on the trip, long as it is, to listen to all of these. Do any of you have suggestions for which ones I should listen to, and which I shouldn't?

Audiobook is probably the best way to read the Manifesto.

The best way to read the Communist Manifesto is actually to absorb its contents directly into your bloodstream suppository-style by sliding the pages one at a time across the capillaries near the surface of your anal skin.

If you haven't already read Alice in Wonderland, then listen to Alice in Wonderland. Also, H.P. Lovecraft can be really good if you read the right stories.

The Communist Manifesto might be handy to have packed away in there, but you should probably ignore Boorishly and avoid staging a putsch in your capital, unless you want your underground to collapse.
