Jennifer | 20 comments Book club selection for June is Isaac Asimov Nightfall and I am so loving it. I haven't read sci-fi like this since I was in high school. Just don't know what our group will think of it? (May's book is Anne of Green Gables. Our policy is pretty loose on what to read ;)

James Brigham | 22 comments I'm hoping to finish "The Snow Child" soon. And now I'm also distracted by Frank Herbert's "Dune", a book I tried to read in high school but found too obtuse and put down ten pages in. And now I'm enamored by it. Go figure.

Charles Cooper | 23 comments 20. Lev Grossman: Codex. Uh, okay. I kept wondering "Why would this guy do this?" And the ending was like the ending of the movie Chinatown. Sort of.

message 26: by Devin Lee (new)

Devin Lee | 5 comments I haven't been posting each month, so here's a long list to get somewhat caught up.

I'm counting my textbooks for Grad courses. They're way thicker than a casual read and keep me from getting to those reads. So, I've finished: Creativity Is Forever, Development Through the Lifespan, The New School, Educational Research Competencies for Analysis and Applications, The Tao of Statistics, Fundamentals of Statistical Reasoning in Education, and Educational Assessment of Students.

In 3 weeks I'll be free to read much lighter texts for pure enjoyment. Can't wait!
