What I'm Reading

Yet another week of eclectic books. Now, mind, you, I do not finish all these books in one week. I am a serial reader...one chapter here, another chapter there and repeat. It may take me 3-4 weeks to finish a book if it is dense, or a day, if it draws me through it.

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference

[Audio Book]

I had been meaning to read this book for a long time when some other book or magazine reminded me. A quick trip to the library and I started it tonight. This one has a definite chance of being a quick read. The first chapter has pulled me in already.

Dirt Under My Nails: An American Farmer and her changing land

I am always attracted to books about farmers, farms and life on the land. I lived the live while growing up and harbor a sentimental longing for it. As with many modern books about farming, though, this one has an undercurrent about the possible loss of the farms and farmland throughout the country and the world.

Smart Choices: A Practical Guide to Making Better Life Decisions

Don't we all want to make better decisions in our lives. I shall see if this book is any help.

A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes and....

This book is sure to cure you of any belief that you are addicted to books. The people profiled here are obsessed and down-right criminal in their love, or lust, for books.

Ultimate Lego Book

As my son grows older we get into Lego more and more. This book addresses all things Lego, including the history of the company, the development of the products and the theme parks.

Lego Crazy Action Contraptions: A Lego...

This book, which comes with a small selection of special Lego parts, is a great way to move beyond simple square structures and into the realm of working devices. We have already built the rubberband-powered car, the candy dispenser and the tightwalk-walking vehicle. Even better, there are even more projects to build. Highly Recommended.

How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food

This is more than a collection of recipes, like Nigella Lawson's first book. This is a collection of methods, tools, ideas, hints and recipes.

Handmade Prints

I have always been intrigued with artistic printmaking and this book is an excellent resource. It covers everything from using rubber erasers and potatoes up to wood cuts, lino cuts and more. IF you are similarly inclinde, this book can have you up and working in your studio (wherever and whatever it might be) in moments.

Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life, one conversation at a time

[CD] [Audio Tape]

Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants,...

This book is the reason you can look to the left and see which web sites have linked to my site recently. A unique discussion of how intelligence "emerges" spontaneously.
