Books

The Off the Shelf page has been sorely neglected. Here’s an attempt to get it up-to-date, at least with the books I consider noteworthy.

Tracking Trash: Flotsam, Jetsam, and the Science of Ocean Motion by Loree Griffin Burns – a interesting (and disturbing) look at ocean currents and the trash contained in them.

We (Gabe especially) have been enjoying Anno’s Math Games I and II. We’ll try to get all the other volumes next library trip. It is giving us lots of inspiration for “math” that just seems like “fun”.

King David – I and II Samuel (the Bible)

The Lamb by John R. Cross

Even Donkeys Speak by Mary McDonald (from Gospel for Asia)

The Empty Pot – Demi

Two Towers – Tolkien (when Graeme is home)

Various books about fossils, ice age, dinosaurs, sea reptiles, etc.

As for me, these are some things I’ve read and am reading or re-reading (in no particular order):

The Gift of Dyslexia – Ronald D. Davis

Life at the Bottom: The Worldview that Makes the Underclass – Theodore Dalrymple

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat – Oliver Sacks (again!)

Bible Believers’ Commentary Series – mostly Romans, James, and John lately

E.M. Bound Complete Works on Prayer
