A now for a finalist! I hate making this choice. I think I'm going to have to go with the Singer book. Mark's entry (Wittgenstein) was really equally as good, but there just wasn't as much of it. I'm not really biased against shorter books. It's just hard to choose sometimes. Round two should be after I come back from Lviv, Ukraine (Early August). (No, I'm not leaving now, just need time to collect the other books and stay within my book budget)
Looks like there are some good titles for round two, so I have high expectations.
