Standard

It would appear to be time to post my reading list for the rest of the semester.

1. Madam Secretary: A Memoir by Madeleine Albright- Madeleine Albright did much to inspire me as a woman, a Democrat, and a Christian, and it will almost certainly be a joy to read her memoirs.

2. Living History by Hillary Clinton- A controversial figure, Hillary is almost certainly running for President in 2008 and I prefer preparedness when it comes to voting.

3. Pi: A Biography of the World’s Most Mysterious Number by Alfred S. Posamentier and Ingmar Lehmann- As a math addict, it’s high time that I learn something about this most delightfully useful number.

4. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne- Yeah, yeah, Mrs. Story, I know we were supposed to read this before we took the test back in junior AP English, but somehow I never got around to it.

5.The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis- One of the questions I’m asked most often is how a good God allows so much pain and suffering, particularly among his most faithful. Perhaps this book will allow me to move beyond my pat answer of, “God knows more than I do,” as this is not always helpful for those who are not current believers in the Almighty.

I’m currently taking suggestions for Christmas break, so if you have any, feel free to leave them.

  1. Focus on the double standards that face women, esp. when it comes to power and sexuality as you read The Scarlet Letter. One of my all time best to read.
