I have a short collection of links to help school study and to free homeschool courses at studyjar.weebly.com The test prep info is USA focused. There’s also a very good budgeting PDF at the end of the page. It’s a workbook 📚. guide for those new to budgeting.
Currently reading: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election by Robert S. Mueller, III 📚
The TV show didn’t click for me, but the book was great fun!
I just finished reading Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe by Roger McNamee.📚
He loves Sally Rooney’s Normal People, he tells me, admiring especially what he calls the “clever rhetorical trick” of how she merges the thoughts of protagonists Marianne and Connell.
Ian McEwan, being interviewed about his new novel for the Irish Times, pays a compliment 📚
Er begyndt på 'A Fistful of Shells: West Africa from the Rise of the Slave Trade to the Age of Revolution'. Tankevækkende bog. Jeg ved meget lidt om afrikansk historie før europæernes ankomst. Stort blind spot 📚
I really enjoyed listening to Spy Master by Brad Thor yesterday and today! Well written, well narrated and good right up to (and including) the last sentence!
My only regret is that I didn’t know to start at the beginning of the series!
Finished reading: 📚Me Before You. Consindering I’m new to English fiction, I figure I should pick popuar ones for starters. And to be honest? I LOVE romance fictions 😂
Rebecca Renner writes about the CIA’s role in the publication of Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago — and Khrushchev’s regrets that the novel was banned in the USSR 📚
📚Finished The Stars are Legion. It’s a wild, inventive story of warring factions of women aboard giant living spaceship-worlds, weird organic everything (including monsters and cephalopod cannons), and an intriguing plot.
After being surprised by the first volume, I wanted to know how the story evolves further, so I read Fizzlesprocket: Everybody Loves Large Chests (Vol.2) by Neven Iliev 📚 as well.
After Amazon proposing this book to me for quite some time, I finally took the bate and read Morningwood: Everybody Loves Large Chests (Vol.1) by Neven Iliev.📚It was unexpectedly good.
And, my first freely-selected post divinity school book is… Missa Est!: A Missional Liturgical Ecclesiology - Fortress Press 📚
I put 'Comics' in my header, so I should probably say what I've been reading📚!
I've really enjoyed getting in to early HELLBLAZER-- I feel like a chump for waiting 39 years of life before reading Constantine (who I've encountered in other books, sometimes under a different name).
While I …
📚Finished The Changeling by Victor LaVelle. Compelling (maybe a little long) read mixing family legacy, race, social media and … monsters.
To lose one court case may be regarded as a misfortune. Formidable Austrialian literary agent Selwa Anthony has recently lost two, the first involving the estate of her friend Colleen McCullough, the second against bestselling author Kate Morton 📖
I spied Kristen Cashore’s “Jane, Unlimited” at Powell’s yesterday and was intrigued by the cover, so I checked out the ebook from the library and started reading. It’s completely engrossing and suspenseful, just what I needed to lose myself in this weekend! 📚
Mere Christopher Priest læst; denne gang ‘The Affirmation’ (1981). Priest kan et eller andet med utroværdige fortællere, og det at vende helt op og ned på en historie. Det er en fornøjelse, og jeg er klar på mere 📚
📚 I’ve spent a decent chunk of today reading (listening to) Heads You Win by Jeffrey Archer.
I’m about 2/3 through and can highly recommend it! (Just don’t click on the above link if you don’t want a mild spoiler shoved in your face)
Some fine reading for a lazy Sunday morning in the new issue of Gingerbread House (@GingerbreadMag): <gingerbreadhouselitmag.com/category/…> 📚
Today’s good comics, all about walking dogs and learning to speak French: Unleashed in Paris by Kate Gavino (🐦@kategavino). 📚
“Among members of the global ruling class… politics remains a ‘question of aesthetics: a way of seeing themselves, of seeing the world, of constructing a personality.’” 📚
Otte bøger inde længes jeg efter afslutningen på ‘The Expanse’-serien. ‘Tiamat’s Wrath’ er stadig space opera af høj kvalitet, men træthedstegnene i plottet er begyndt at vise sig. Håber sidste bind blive episk 📚
He has to keep three balls in the air at once: the biographical story, an interpretation of the fiction as autobiography, and a consideration of the fiction as fiction. That’s why his book is so long.
2015 New Yorker review of Zachary Leader’s The Life of Saul Bellow 📚
it’s refreshing to see a novelist so earnestly uncertain about the value of her task—and a complex pleasure to read the novels animated by such ambivalence.
Nathan Goldman writes in The Baffler about Sally Rooney’s self-criticism 📚
