Just finished:
  • The Windup Girl-- Paolo Bacigalupi Another in the cyber-punk social commentary vein as Altered Carbon. But not as well written
  • Interworld - Neil Gaiman. I think it's a good book for the Kid...
  • Chill - Elizabeth Bear. I love her books. finis.
  • Worldwired - ditto and ditto
  • Scardown -- need I say more?
  • Kill the Dead: a Sandman Slim novel by Richard Kadrey. If you like punk noir, this and Sandman Slim might be right up your alley
  • Thirteen -- Richard K. Morgan If you've read this, you will laugh to know I was reading Scripture and The Language of God at the same time
Reading:
  • The Language of God by Francis S Collins, head of the Genome Project. My kind of argument for God.
  • The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness by Edward M Halloway. Self-explanatory and worth reading
  • We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication by Judith Warner. A must-read for any parent, grandparent or educator who is contemplating medication for a child, or facing a medicated child or the hostile relative of a child who should be medicated.
  • A slew of Melody Beattie titles on recommendation. Small doses, but she's helping sort out interdependencies
  • The Miracle of Mindfulness in tree form, so I don't have the author. Some Master.
  • Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana.
  • Sensational Meditation for Children by Sarah Wood Vallely
  • Smart but Scattered: The Revolutionary 'Executive Skills' Approach to Helping Kids -- there's more to the title, but that's all Amazon can show me! by Peg Dawson and Richard Guare
  • The Gospels, read Luke, reading John, and have to go to Delicious's office today to pick up the Annotated Oxford Bible, plus some books Delicious picked out on religion, God, Christianity et al for me to read. Us to read.
What's on deck:
  • More Elizabeth Bear, my happy escape quality time
  • Words to Live By -- CS Lewis
  • The Mindful Child -- Susan K Greenland
  • ADHD workbooks for me and the kid
  • The Mindful Path to Self Compassion: Freeing Yourself from Destructive Thoughts and Emotions -- Christopher K Germer (This one looks like something I should just go ahead and buy)
  • Learned Optimism by one of the guys listed above somewhere.
Names to keep in mind:
Kristin Neff - research psychologist into self-kindness
