This Week at the Library (4 June)

Summer has arrived with a fury in south-central Alabama, and this past week’s heat and humidity broke several records. Suffice it to say, I’m very glad I’m not working in a factory this summer, but instead am babysitting…usually inside, though in the mornings or late in the afternoon the kids and I go outside for some baseball/basketball/grasshopper-chasing/dog-walking-and-unexpected-dog-chasing-through-the-woods-because-they-wriggled-out-of-their-collars.

This week I finished two books which I’ve still not written the reviews for, and I’ve been making steady progress on both The Age of Faith and Biology Made Simple.

Today at the library, I checked out…

  • Just in Time Geometry, Catherine V. Jeremko. While teaching my niece elementary algebra, I noticed how badly my math skills have gone to pot, and realized how much I actually miss knowing various geometric formulas. Time for a refresher. (Geometry was the only mathematics class I ever earned an A in, being generally math-avoidant.)
  • All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, Robert Fulghum. I went by Wikiquote before visiting the library, and this fellow caught my attention.
  • Sharpe’s Triumph,  Bernard Cornwell. In which Richard Sharpe becomes a lieutenant — I think.

I also bought The Omnivore’s Dilemma, which a friend of mine read a few months back and remains very excited about.
