You KNOW you are a geek when stuff like this gets you excited.  Doug Hofstadter is one my favorite writers ever, and that's saying something, since books have filled my world (and my home) since I can remember.  If you are a Hofstadter fan, you may be surprised to know that my favorite book of his is NOT the enjoyable "Godel, Escher, & Bach", rather it is the much more obscure but no less sumptuous, "Le Ton Beau de Marot".

He's got a new one now and I can't wait to get it!
