I recently obtained and read the Inkheart trilogy (Inkheart, Inkspell, and Inkdeath).  The first book was made into a movie starring Brendan Frasier, it’s too bad they never did the second and third.  It’s about a man who has the gift of reading books into LIFE. When he reads a book out loud, something random from the book comes into THIS world.  And something from this world goes into the book world.  The first time he realized this, he accidentally read his wife into the book Inkheart and read a master criminal out.  The book is obscure and he’s been trying to locate another copy for years when the story starts out.

Time and Space in Japanese Culture by Kato Shuichi (translated, of course!)

Pretty interesting, but not easy to read. Checked out Kabuki & Noh performances on YouTube to see some of the things mentionned.

I like learning about foreign cultures – Venus in 9th, I guess. But travel by books.

I just took the test and I’m a rebel. I think my son is too. I might have to check out the book. Let us know if it’s worth reading. 

I’m attempting to read Man, Woman, Nature by Alan Watts after discovering his old lectures on YouTube and finding so much in his teachings. The book is not quite impacting me the same but it’s beautiful to read. It doesn’t help that I ordered it used off of amazon. Supposedly in good condition but is riddled with pen and highlighter. Even comments in the margins. The comments themselves are annoying. Anyway. I’m going to try to stick with it.

My mom hasn’t taken the test but she must be a rebel. I would be shocked if she wasn’t.

I haven’t completely finished the book but if anyone has to deal with a lot of different people on a regular basis then I recommend it. I have several hundred co-workers so I need all the help I can get.

Mothers and Others by Sarah Hrdy. A researcher/doctor who has studied the similarities and differences between how humans raise children and other 2nd/3rd world countries, hunter gathers and such, and also chimpanzees, bonobos and other closely related primates. Has heavily influenced my beliefs and approach in family. The book “Sex at Dawn” led me to this book.

The Zen Teaching of the Homeless Kodo by 2 Japanese men whose names I don’t want to type, and edited by Molly Whitehead. Title speaks for itself. This book is for those seeking philosophical knowledge nuggets.

Tam, tell us what you think about that one when you are done. I have heard it is intense. Terry Gross interviewed tha author but I haven’t listened yet.

Now I am reading Jan Frazier’s books about her spiritual awakening. fascinating.

Also Lucid Dreaming by Holocek.

This is going to take awhile to finish. I am almost to the halfway point and now it is mostly about a lot of foreign names and meetings and I can’t keep up with who these people are.

The first few chapters actually made me feel sick to my stomach. As a moderate that hates conspiracy theories, I am struggling to wrap my head around all of it. The last time I felt like this was Sept. 11, 2001. If the book is 65% accurate several people are going to prison. If we are lucky they really are as dumb as they seem. I almost flipped out today when I saw the newsflash about the bank in Germany because that is a big piece of the puzzle I think. This is all I feel comfortable saying.

Just finished Lincoln in the Bardo. It’s kind of experimental in style, which I don’t always like, but I really enjoyed this one.
