November proved to be a reasonably productive month!
Southern History / Literature:
…nichts. Callahan is technically a southern writer, but her Lewis book had nothing to do with the South.
November theme/special series: “A Week with Jack”
The Reading Life: The Joy of Seeing New Worlds through Others’ Eyes, C.S. Lewis. (Anthology)
The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C.S. Lewis , Alan Jacobs
The Problem of Pain, C.S. Lewis
Lewis Agonistes, Louis Markos
Once Upon a Wardrobe, Patti Callahan
December will be a housekeeping/catch-up month, with a focus on Mount Doom and the CC challenge. I’m expecting one book in via ILL, one named Brothers and Friends: it’s an edited diary from Major Warren (Warnie) Lewis, C.S. Lewis’ brother. I also have a few Kindle Unlimited titles that I’ve had checked out for weeks and never gotten around to, so now’s the time to either read or return. I’ve already taken care of two (The Naked Man and How to Live in a Car, Van, or RV). The remainder include:
[*] Runaway Masters: A True Story about Slavery, Freedom, Triumph, and Tragedy. A history of the “black Seminoles“, escaped slaves who became members of the Seminole tribe.
[*] Carrying the Fire, Michael Collins. The memoir of Apollo 11’s third man, Mike Collins, who circled the moon alone while Armstrong and Aldrin explored the surface.
[*] Dangerous Passions, Deadly Sins: Learning from the Psychology of Ancient Monks, Dennis Okholm
