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.
