What I'm Reading...

Poems to Read by Robert Pinsky

A new favorite poem Project Anthology. Favorite poems recommended by others. A book to open in random places and ride on the back of poetic synchronicity.

San Fernando Valley: America's Suburb by Kevin Roderick

An excellent history of the San Fernando Valley. I learned more about "The Valley" reading this book than in my entire 16+ years living here. Warning: Even though I am not a Valley native, I found a certain sense of loss as I read the text and examined the pictures.

Horse sense for people by Monty Roberts

Robert's applies his philosophy of horse training to humans...and there are some startling comparisons.

Winterdance: The fine madness of running the Iditarod by Gary Paulsen

Unexpectedly, Paulsen had me both laughing myself to tears and cowering in fear over his stories of training for and running this amazing dogsled race.

365 things to do with your kids -- before they are too old to enjoy them by Bill Adler, Jr.

A great source of ideas for time with Joe and a sense of pride in having already done many of the suggestions.

Brush up your Shakespeare by Michael Macrone.

Delve into the wealth of words and sayings that Shakespeare brought to the English language for the first time. You might be surprised at the original meaning of many phrases we now take for granted.

Wailing Wind by Tony Hillerman

Hillerman's latest Jim Chee/Joe Leaphorn mystery continues a fine series.

Repacking your bags: Lighten your load for the rest of your life by Richard J. Leider & David A. Shapiro

An interesting book and eay read that just might help you make your next 30 years even better.
