February Books

It’s a leap year, quite a marvellous thing, really.  I’ve decided to stagger my planting a bit, so today I planted six Brandywine and six Tommy Toe tomatoes.  Tomorrow I think I’ll try the pansies and lettuce.

This month I’ve read:

*Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals, by Immanuel Kant

*Hyperion, by Friedrich Hölderlin

Let Us Compare Mythologies, by Leonard Cohen

The Spring Madness of Mr. Sermon, by R.F. Delderfield (a book I have read numerous times, the sort of thing that is not just about starting a new life but what happens after one breaks free and has to pick up the loose pieces.  I find it always uplifting.)

*Virtue and Terror, selections, Maximilien Robespierre

The Tightwad Gazette, by Amy Dacyczyn [library]

The Tough Guide to Fantasyland, by Diana Wynne Jones

Dark Lord of Derkholm, by Diana Wynne Jones

Year of the Griffin, by Diana Wynne Jones (these latter form a duology set in the world for which the Tough Guide is the parodic guidebook, as I mentioned when discussing stew earlier this month)

*Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley

Thirteenth Child, by Patricia C. Wrede [library]

The Fabulous Girl’s Guide to Decorum, by Kim Izzo and Ceri Marsh [library]

*Introduction to the Philosophy of History, by G.W.F. Hegel

The Dirty Life, by Kristin Kimball [library]

Jenna and Jonah’s Fauxmance, by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin.

*Theses on Feuerbach, by Karl Marx

*German Ideology, by Karl Marx

*Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx

*Capital (chapter one), by Karl Marx

The Seeress of Kell, by David Eddings

Gardening for Good Eating, by Helen Fox [mine, but bought this month, so it doesn’t go very far towards my attempts to read the books I already own but haven’t yet read…]

Across the Great Barrier, by Patricia C. Wrede [library]

Amateur Greenhouse Gardening, by Kenneth A. Beckett [another new, or rather used, purchase]

Hit by a Farm, by Catherine Friend [library]

Hmm . . . twenty-three, in a month of twenty-nine days.  Plus there are half a dozen I’m still working on . . .
