Summer Reading.

This past Saturday (and part of Sunday) I was on a quest - a mission even. My objective: Books!!! Was my "mission" successful? You can bet your sweet ass it was! First off, I started in the science section (dwarfed by the Religion/Christianity section, of course), where I settled on Sean B. Carroll's: The Making of the Fittest, and Endless Forms Most Beautiful. Then, it was on to the Philosophy section, where I walked away with a copy of A Treatise of Human Nature by David Hume. Finally, (after what seemed like hours) I exited the store, books in hand, and boy, did I feel accomplished... well almost, but not quite. Later the next day, something kept nagging me; what did I fail to obtain from Barnes & Noble the previous day? Fyodor Dostoevsky's masterpiece The Brothers Karamazov, and The Prince and other writings by Niccolò Machiavelli. Now, there's a dilemma (or is there?), which do I read first? Any suggestions?
