Currently reading

A Morbid Taste for Bones: The First Chronicle of Brother Cadfael. by Ellis Peters

An Excellent Mystery: The Eleventh Chronicle of Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters

A Rare Benedictine: The Advent of Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters

(Three of us are fighting over various Cadfael chronicles; these are the current three volumes...I think.)

How the Heather Looks: A Joyous Journey to the British Sources of Children's Books by Joan Bodger

On a recommendation from Magistramater, this beauty is now in our new stacks. Enjoy Wind in the Willows? An avid follower of all things Swallows and Amazons? This is the book for you. It fills me with travel lust...someday I'll get there.

The Landmark Thucydides: A Comprehensive Guide to the Peloponnesian War

The Jewish War by Flavius Josephus

Origin of Species by Charles Darwin

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx

Reading for Great Books 1, 2, 4. And, yes, I am delighted to have them read such things as Darwin and Marx.

Mulliner Nights by P.G. Wodehouse

The choice of the latest Wodehouse convert in the house.

Solomon Among the Postmoderns by Peter J. Leithart

Interested in Peter Leithart and Ecclesiastes. Two for the price of one.

The Great Lent: The Journey to Pascha by Alexander Schmemann

This is hard reading for me, but good hard. I hope to be done by NEXT YEAR'S Lent.
