What We're Reading: November, 2014

An event in autumn by Henning Mankell ; translated from the Swedish by Laurie Thompson.  Fans of Mankell's Swedish detective, Kurt Wallander, will enjoy this story set just before Wallander's final case. 

The teacher wars: a history of America's most embattled profession by Dana Goldstein.  Everyone has an opinion about America's public schools and the responsibility of its' teachers. Would you be surprised to learn teachers have been similarly embattled for nearly two centuries?

A share in death by Deborah Crombie. This is the first in Crombie's long running Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series.  It's been on my To Read list for awhile and I thought it's time had come. Nominated for an Agatha Award.

This weekend Eastern Standard Time ends and we spring ahead into Daylight Saving Time beginning Sunday March 11th at 2:00 AM. Move your clocks ahead one hour to gain that extra light during the early evening hours. In addition, take time to change those smoke detector batteries and check carbon monoxide detectors to protect your family and home.

Time Management

There are many approaches to seeking self-actualization; and the library is a great place to find self-help materials about them. If you're interested in realizing your full potential, your method of achieving that goal might include minimalism, and it will likely require time management:
