Daily Thoughts 09/01/2012
I have been reading more of Evolutionaries. The author is writing about more modern philosophy, Hegel, Voltaire, and Integral philosophy. This is new territory for me. I have mostly read the classics and Greek and Roman philosophy. I read another chapter in Madrigal's Magic Keys to Spanish and How to Keep People from Pushing Your Buttons.
One of the keys to succeeding with task oriented books is to read a little bit every day and do some of the exercises every day. It is the ideal of steady progress which succeeds in the end.
I have been on vacation, relaxing mostly.
We sometimes order inspirational or christian fiction because our patrons ask for it. Amish fiction is quite popular so is historical fiction set in the holy land. There is a separate award for Christian fiction called the Christys. http://www.christyawards.com/ca_new/ Beverly Lewis, Kendra Norma-Bellay, and Kimberla Lawson Roby are extremely popular. There is also an imprint called Urban Christian http://www.urbanbooks.net/Urban-Christian/index.html focused on redemption which is a kind of counter to urban fiction.
