You know ~ I looked at your library thing & the only books that weren't intimidating were about food.
(I've also been thinking about digging into Powell for a while.)


Put Me in the Zoo is pretty accessible. More seriously, intimidation is a relative thing; some philosophy books I have might intimidate some (and a few of them intimidate me), but to others be very familiar--while if I had to read a library full of certain types of science books (to pick one of many possible areas) beyond the most basic level, I'd be in tears.

The Powell can be read a twelfth or a quarter at a time without loss of enjoyment, if perhaps with some missing of the architecture. But I found (and my wife even more so) that once I read the first there was really no stopping.
