Some items about books to read later
Posted April 29, 2009on:
This could also be a list of items I may want to build library displays upon at a later date. But, for now I am simply labeling it as a post listing books I would like to read at some later date.
- Some materials to read to honor Holocaust Rememberance. Though in some future point, I can see where we could make a display for the library on the topic, the post does provide some ideas on readings about the topic other than the usual things.
- OK, these are not print books, but it is still reading. Eclectic Librarian gives a list of webcomics that are must-reads. I will have to check some of those out at some point.
- From Stephen's Lighthouse, recommending a book called The Incident Report, about libraries and those patrons that cause incidents in our buildings. As of this writing, the book is not released yet. So this is more of a to read once it is out kind of thing.
- Review of the book An Unlikely Disciple, about student who went undercover to Liberty University. Via The Daily Beast. This may be similar to that book I read about the professor going back to college a while back, My Freshman Year. See my booknote on that one here.
- Guys Lit Wire offered a couple of ideas of what to read after watching the Watchmen movie (besides reading the graphic novel that started it all).
- The dudes above also recommend the graphic novel Cairo. I do have that one on my TBR list.
- Joyce Valenza points to the book Readicide: How Schools are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It. This sounds like something educators should be reading overall. At times I surprise myself that I became an avid reader considering that my school years pretty much did their best to ruin the reading experience for me. But that could be a whole other post.
- Review of A Great Idea at the Time, about the Great Books program. Via The National.
- From The Texas Observer, review of Tales for Little Rebels: a Collection of Radical Children's Literature. Sounds like the type of stuff not many around here would be interested in, but it sounds like a very cool book to me.
- I had no idea there was a book on the history of the bagel, but Slate has a review of it here.
- Liberty Street gives a short recommendation to read Benazir Bhutto's book Reconciliation.
As I look at the above, there are some pretty ambitious titles on the list. I am not sure if and when I will get to any of these, but I don't want to forget them.
