All consuming big brother

I've started subscribing to All Consuming, as in some sense we are what we read, and All Consuming show exactly what most people in the blogosphere are reading.

The thing that disturbed me about subscribing to this site though was the All Consuming top books from a week ago: 1984 and Brave New World both made it to the top five. To add to that, if you go back a month you get American Dynasty: Aristocracy, Fortune, and the Politics of Deceit in the House of Bush as well as Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. If we are what we read, this can't be good...

paul:

...especially if we read things like "essential .NET"...ranked #2 in the past year. (see also your microsoft-bashing post :)

Ken:

Yeah, but "essential .NET" is probably 10 pages long, big font, with introduction, kinda like the "Men's Guide to Wedding Planning."

If MS is smart, they'll be pushing it into schools like Pepsi and Coke, giving it to elementary schools as a 2nd grade reading assignment (which is boosting their sales):

Page 1: See .NET run
Page 2: .NET is having fun
