    Giving Wind-up Bird Chronicle a break at the moment and reading Farewell, my lovely. By Ramond Chandler. So far, I am really enjoying it!

    the bell jar
    Blackden by Duncan Mclean.
    The first few pages were rough for me because he is a Scottish author and I wasn't used to the lingo, but I quickly caught on. I'm enjoying it now.

    Read Any Good Math Lately? by David Whitin & Sandra Wilde

    As a homeschooling mom, one of my weaknesses has always been math. I'll admit to hating the subject in school, starting at about the 6th grade. The other day in a yahoo group someone mentioned being impressed with a website/math program called LivingMath @ www.livingmath.net. When I went to the site, I found lots of lists of great books to read for myself and my kids to encourage us to enjoy math and get over math phobia. The first book I received from the library through Ill was Read Any Good Math Lately. It's full of book suggestions and practical ideas and examples of how to implement a natural method of learning to use math in everyday circumstances. Perhaps using a few of these "living books" and talking about them will help my kids see that math is more than a textbook subject to get through. Seems to me this would go far in answering the battle cry of the frustrated math student, "But how will I ever USE this stuff in REAL life?"

    The Fry Chronicles
    Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. I'm 40 pages in and I love it already - it reminds me of Michael Marshall Smith's sci-fi novels.

    A book that spends the first 20 pages on a guy who's desperately trying to get a pizza delivered on time can't be all bad, can it?

    Cheers

    "On time" for a pizza is just about one nanosecond, isn't it?

    Last week i started to read Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett, so far i really enjoy it, but i don't consider it the best of the Discworld series.

    Wicked left me feeling very very dirty, like I watched a Disney porn. *Shudder*
