Well, I am slowly getting through the books we have in the house 
(as well as some I have borrowed from the library)... 
so I thought I would do a post on the ones I have finished up:

* Duke (a bio of John Wayne) - Ronald Davis. Not sure how factual it is, but it was really good.

* A Consensus Handbook - Seeds for Change
* An Electronic Silent Spring - Katie Singer
* The Green and the Black - Gary Sernovitz
Silent Spring - Rachel Carson
-- all books on fracking and ecological concerns. Good, but depressing.

* Gift from the Sea - Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Written in the 50s. Still good.
* Twenty Days with Julian - Nathanial Hawthorne. Who knew Hawthorne wrote this? I didn't. Probably the first ever... "dad alone with the kid" kind of books.
Confessions of a Pagan Nun - Kate Horsley. Didn't like it. Really thought I would.
Toujours Provence - Perter Mayle. A collection of short stories from an ex-pat living in France.
--all older books I had, that I was saving to read.

* Hardcore Zen - Brad Warner. Interesting.... but a bit hard to follow at times.
* News of the World - Paulette Jiles. Surprisingly awesome. I really wasn't giving it much credit, but couldn't put it down til I finished it.
* The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic - Emily Croy Barker. Here again, I thought it was going to be bad. It was LONG (600 pages) but surprisingly good.
* The Anthropology of Turquoise - Ellen Meloy. Reading it right now. I think it's been on my "To read List" for over a decade... it's really good.

And there you have it... the latest books (13!) that I have read in the past month.
See you all tomorrow!
