This Week at the Library (18 January)

Pending Reviews: How the Mind Works, Stephen Pinker; The Misunderstood Jew: the Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine.
Currently Reading: The Fabric of the Cosmos, Brian Greene; At Home, Bill Bryson
Potentials: The Oceans, Ellen Prager
New Releases: Bernard Cornwell just published the sixth Saxon Stories novel, The Death of Kings, which excites me to no end. Here's hoping my library picks it up quickly.


"It seems a shame to have to turn your back on what took so long and required so much work and study to accomplish."
Bryce thought it seemed a shame, too. But starving seemed an even bigger shame. "You don't always get to do what you want to do," he said. "Sometimes, you do what you have to do, and pick up the pieces from there."

Thank you for visiting! Because of some very clever spambots, I've had to start moderating comments more strictly, but they're approved throughout the day.
