I am trying to figure out which one I want to blog about. I really can’t decide!
Last week I finished Learning All The Time. I really liked it. It gave me a lot of new ideas for ways to incorporate unschooling philosophy into our daily lives. My main complaint about the unschooling movement is that I feel too many people choose to not-school and call it unschooling. I realize that everyone can make their own definitions, but if I were queen of the world 😉 I’d have unschooling focus WAY more on the stuff that looks like what Holt says. I love his ideas.
The books I am currently working on:
So far this book is really making me think about whether or not I am still in the “rebellion” part of my life, and that means that I will eventually settle into some kind of compromise of life. His discussion on this fact is really interesting.
I am reading this book because of my friend’s husband’s decision to work through the Serious Times book lists. They looked pretty good to me, so I decided to jump on board.
This isn’t a sit-down-with-a-hot-tea kind of book, but it is nice to flip through and get good ideas. I want to do a post on green living later this week.
This book was recommended for me by my library. So far it is VERY anti-Paul. I’m surprised, because the author has another book on why he is Catholic, so I keep thinking that he must believe Paul at some level, right?
When I was younger, I had some issues with Paul. Even still I wouldn’t have gone as far as the author does in his introduction. His criticism of Paul as a man who made his own religion, didn’t quote Jesus, and didn’t even know Jesus are pretty harsh. Its interesting nonetheless.
Big thanks to everyone who has purchased books off of my site. I appreciate the little bits and they help offset the server fees 🙂 Also, if anyone wants to see my allconsuming list, then feel free to check it out and suggest some new books for me! Oh, and I also have started a listofbests for my 52 books for the year 🙂 If you have an account on these sites, let me know and I’ll go cheer you on!
Well, I hope everyone is having a great weekend and a restful Sabbath. I’m off to read some more 🙂
