Bossypants by Tina Fey, it's funny and I need to laugh right now
Magic's Child by Justine Larbalestier
I am reading "Ptolemy's Gate," by Jonathan Stroud.
Codependent No More, by Melody Beattie
I just finished this book on audible, pretty darn good.
I'm finding it very helpful, I'm glad I own it so I can reference it when I need to now!
Finished up reading Johnathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach, a philosophical story reminiscent of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Both books are great reads. Now I will tackle The Chanur Saga by C. J. Cherryh. This October I finally got around to reading A Dog's Purpose by Bruce Cameron, also a good book. It is bittersweet and doesn't sugarcoat the harsh realities that some dogs end up facing.
I'm working on a book called Sports Fans, Identity, and Socialization: Exploring the Fandemonium. It's a collection of studies on sports fans. It's fascinating, but some of them use complex statistical methods I am unfamiliar with.
Paradise lost, john Milton
Infinite Jest which is a 1000 page book, by wallace, not liking it much though
I finished reading 12 angry men (drama) with my students recently. I had never read it before so i decided to read it along with the students and be surprised with them. I forced myself to stay only 2-3 pages ahead. Thankfully I have advanced enough in my teaching career that I can do that.
It’s a great read and the children love it too.
Turtles all the way down by John Green was my personal read that I just finished. I wasn’t teaching it and I must say. I found it very relatable. Dealt with some mental health themes.
Dune, wanted to read it for a while, a sci fi classic. : )
I'm reading a book about Genghis Khan by one John Man, I'm into history and great leader of old and current.
That book helped me cope with a really difficult time at my life. It has a special place in my heart. A good old friend.
In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts by Gabor Mate
The Courts of Chaos - Roger Zelazny
I love anything Zelazny!
The Dispossessed by Ursula K Le Guin. I have Into The Labyrinth by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman on deck, it's the 6th in the Death Gate Cycle series.
Listened to this one while I took a long drive. Tina Fey narrated and it was hilarious. Enjoy!
