I spent a rainy Saturday afternoon wandering around a megabookstore and came away with a new list of books I want to read. I have an uncanny knack for things which have many holds on them at the library, which must mean I am behind the curve of discovery, but what can I say, better late than never. In no particular order and with no particular connection…
The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science, by Richard Holmes
Acedia & Me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer’s Life, by Kathleen Norris (The Cloister Walk)
Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections Between Sexuality and Spirituality by Rob Bell (see previous post)
That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo
and… Homer and Langley by EL Doctorow
That is all. Except for that I just, at the urging of someone from my book club, joined the website GoodReads. I am not certain of the implications of this yet, but I believe we can look at each other’s to-read lists that way. Finally, I have taken since Friday a hiatus from Facebook and am finding it refreshing. Happy Monday, everyone.
