Someone knows me well.
My wife was at work yesterday when something came up. They have been working very hard for a couple of months on a massive project to delete older materials from their collection, so when they got a donation of materials, the first thing they did was look at what they didn’t need. Most of the donation was foreign language (she thought they were German) – which wouldn’t help any program on this campus.
Five of them were not suitable for the campus curriculum, but were still in English. They also stood out as books she thought I’d want to read. She was right.
So, last night when she got home, I got handed 5 new (to me) books to read. Here is the list:
AN ALCHEMY OF MIND by Diane Ackerman
WITCHCRAFT IN THE THAMES VALLEY by Tony Barham
THE TEMPLARS by Piers Paul Read
THE LITTLE BOOK OF FREEMASONRY by Sangeet Duchane
MYTHS OF THE WORLD by Padraic Colum (original title: ORPHEUS)
Why I keep Asking You Not to Buy Books from Amazon by Ursula K. Le Guin
I have my own reasons for not supporting Amazon, but I thought you might appreciate the point-of-view of a NYT Bestselling author who also doesn’t want you to buy her books through that outlet.
