For a change of pace, check out "what books sit on Bill Gates's nightstand."  The one with the blue cover on top of the stack is noteworthy.   (In case you can't enlarge the picture enough to read its title -- it reads,  How to Lie with Statistics.)

Bill Gates is reading How to Lie with Statistics?  Well, I guess it never hurts to go back and repeat the basics.

It's common for authors to read other authors who write in their chosen genre and on their chosen subject.
