BAND May Discussion: The Topics You Hate To Admit You Enjoy

Kim over at Sophisticated Dorkiness (my Christmas Card Exchange partner) has another blog that she co-authors titled BAND: Blogger's Alliance of Non-fiction Devotees and if you want to participate, this is what you do...from the About Us section:
How to Participate 
Our main online headquarters is this blog and this is where you can find any updates you need.  
Each month, a different nonfiction blogger will post a topic for discussion, which we’ll post a link to here. To participate, write up a response to their topic — as long or short as you’d like — for your blog at any time during the month. Please also leave a link to your response at the original topic post so the host can write up a wrap-up at the end of the month. 
May's topic

Gah! I like chees-tastic self-help books--there I said it. I like to do the quizzes and then compare my traits with those of my students and peers.

My favorite is Living Your Colors: Practical Wisdom for Life, Love, Work and Play.

I also hate to admit that I enjoy books that mix science and religion, philosophy and/or Pop Culture.

My favorite that encompasses all of those traits is Taking the Red Pill: Science, Philosophy and Religion in The Matrix.

I shamefully like Media Tie-Ins...I like to know the ins and outs of all my favorite television shows and movies.

My favorites of these are The Unofficial X-Files Companion: An X-Phile's Guide to the Mysteries, Conspiracies, and Really Strange Truths Behind the Show and Friends: The Official Companion Book (a book that I received from my dormmates for my 20th birthday in 1996).
