Here is a partial list:
Daughter of Time by Tey- I find myself feeling sorry for King Richard III!
Dark Night of the Soul St. John of the Cross- Insightful and Encouraging, DEEP
Birth of Britain by Churchill- mostly a political history; a difficult read but very informative
Vol 6 School Education by Mason-I always find new inspiration reading this volume
Numbers, Romans, Psalms- history, commentary for today's generation and encouragement.
Swallows and Amazons by Ransome-found a sailing boat chart this time to follow along with this wonderful children's book. Boys and girls will love it.
The Jungle Books by Kipling- always a winner. I like book one better than book two.
How the Heather Looks by Bodger - Didn't care for the first few chapters, but King Arthur was fascinating. I hope it continues to grow my interest.
How to Read a Book by Adler- practical and very helpful for the teen plus reader
Lilith by George MacDonald- read it 15 yrs ago. Forgot much of it. His universalism belief shows as well as his keen imagination. It's not my favorite MacDonald book, but maybe my imagination hasn't been properly baptized yet.
Pilgrim's Progress part 2 by Bunyan-reading this *fourth time, to my eight yr. old. It's good but I like part one even more.
Once and Future King by White- I did not care for the first volume even though it revealed good and bad leadership through story. I like volume two much better so far, although I am editing parts for my daughter. Volume two has excellent fodder for discussion about govt.
The Pursuit of God by Tozer -always a winner
(about half of these are rereads)
I'm also researching:
Life of John Donne-love this guy
Tolkien's philosophy-I'm exploring the criticism behind his non redemptive mythological world.
Life of Keats- I'm afraid he lived a lousy life and died a dreadful death
Life of Degas-finding conflicting info about this man. Some folks love him and some hate him.
King Richard III-hero? lunatic? Doubt we'll know this side of heaven
the Star of Bethlehem-watched fascinating video on the research behind this. How little we know...
How to repair your clock-my bird clock chimes 20 minutes before the hour. I'm determined to fix it myself
How long to boil raw milk-does anybody know? I hear conflicting opinions from one minute to 13 minutes. Our raw milk is definitely not safe due to dirty farms.
Various bread recipes for breadmaker- all links and recipes welcome. I have a large capacity machine so am looking for recipes to fit.
crocheting with a tiny hook-everyone does this around here. I 've simply got to learn. I'm starting with Karen of Poland's bookmarks.
Online music theory- my kids are getting ahead of me. tsk...tsk... I was determined my children would learn piano even though we don't have access to a tutor. They are doing great. My daughter can play simple classical music selections now. Ah... bliss.
Pelagianism- Researching this belief that Miss Mason may have had about human nature. This may explain why she was so positive about the child's nature. (I am not so positive)
I'm listening to:
Bruce Cockburn's, Dart to the Heart
Loreena McKennit's, Mask in the Mirror
Schumann's Symphony 1- Spring
I would like to tag Kimberly, Traci , Shannon, Carol , and Heather No pressure. :- )
one step at a time...
