The other day I had a bunch of discussions in which the word "horse" randomly popped up--conversations that involved the new, $50k buy-in HORSE (Hold'em/Omaha/Razz/Stud Eight or Better) event at this year's World Series of Poker, the Seattle band Horses (which is now called Band of Horses because "Horses" itself was too confusing), and other scattered topics. In an odd coincidence, the next day I received a book in the mail entitled Horse: How the Horse Has Shaped Civilizations by J. Edward Chamberlin. Even though I'm not much of a horse person, I'm really into the idea of this book and plan on checking it out this week. It has a neat cover, at least.
Another book I've been dipping in and out of is a new release of Charles Bukowski poems entitled Come on In! It's been like 12 years since Bukowski died, and this is the ninth collection from the archives he intended to be published after his death. Cool.
