What the Readers Are Reading: Part the First

Many thanks to all of you for sending in your reading lists. I have been busy salivating over the titles and spending my extra minutes linking away. What a diverse and interesting group you are. I am so glad that you wrote and let me know what you're reading.

Fiction

Bleak House by Charles Dickens


Chatain's Guardian by Robin Hardy

The Inferno of Dante by Dante, Mazur and Pinsky

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte



Joan of Arc Mark Twain

The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald

Queen's Fool


Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

Space Trilogy (box set) by C.S. Lewis


Non-fiction


Animal, Vegetable, Mineral by Barbara Kingsolver

Blended Structure and Style in Composition by James Webster

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Gibbon

I am not sure this is the copy of Gibbon that reader Jennifer is reading, but it looks good. My daughter will be studying the six-volume set (found here and here) for a class with Mr. Callihan next year. In our view that means good times are ahead. Lucky girl.

Einstein: His Life and Universe by Isaacson

The Everlasting Man Chesterton

From a House to a Home by Jemima Mills

Grace-Based Parenting by Kimmel

Hold On To Your Kids: Why Parents Matter by Neufeld and Mate

North of Ithaka by Eleni Gage (and you can read the reader's review here.)

Orthodox Alaska: A Theology of Mission

The Philosophy of Tolkein: The Worldview behind The Lord of the Rings by Peter Kreeft

The Roots of American Order by Russell Kirk

A Teaching Company recommendation: The Life and Writings of C S Lewis.

In addition, Sherry from Semicolon, a blog any book lover should know and love, sent in two of the books from her list:

Enna Burning by Shannon Hale

The Loud Silence of Francine Green by Karen Cushman

She also included links to lists of books some of her children are reading here and here.

Thus endeth Part the First. Have no fear if your books are not here; there are MANY more books to list and link. Patience, patience, patience. It will take me a while.
