PLUGGING AWAY AT THE READING.  There's been little time to post lately, and griping about the workload doesn't make for interesting posting.  Work does progress on the Fifty Book Challenge, with the first quarter report ready for filing.  The links go to the review at the Challenge.  Some books are particularly good (+); others particularly bad (-)

  1. How the University Works: Higher Education and the Low-Wage Nation, 11 January 2011 (-).
  2. Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free, 13 January 2011 (-).
  3. Boomer Destiny: Leading the U.S. through the Worst Crisis Since the Great Depression, 16 January 2011 (-).
  4. A Liberal Tool Kit: Progressive Responses to Conservative Arguments, 17 January 2011.
  5. Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men: Understanding the Critical Years Between 16 and 26, 21 January 2011 (-).
  6. Punching Out:  One Year in a Closing Auto Plant, 30 January 2011.
  7. Super Sad True Love Story. 27 March 2011.

There are some books stacked and ready for review, and the bookworm will sprout more segments during the summer.
