Just Some Books.

Honestly, one of us, or the other of us, has been sick for the last three weeks.  And the weather has been a disappointment.  I've gotten a lot of reading done.  And, library due dates always inspire me to keep my head down.  As always, I like your book suggestions, too.

Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange, by Elizabeth Partridge

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, by Eric Metaxas*
Eric Metaxas is an excellent biographer- both this, and the Wilberforce bio I read last year were excellent.

How Harry Cast His Spell: The Meaning Behind the Mania for J. K. Rowling's Bestselling Books, by John Granger
Text for our first Hogwarts Society meeting later this month- contact me for more info.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling
I listened to these two via audiobook when I was doing dishes, cleaning, and trying to fall asleep with Jim coughing incessantly next to me in bed, and then kept listening while I was in bed most of the weekend. Even better the second time through, of course.

Evolving in Monkey Town, by Rachel Held Evans

50 Photographers You Should Know, by Peter Stephan

The Poor Will Be Glad: Joining the Revolution to Lift the World Out of Poverty, by Peter Greer and Phil Smith*

*I'd recommend any of the above books, but, these books come highly recommended.
