Escape from Powell's

A list of books I may get around to reading next year, in no particular order:

I'm still in the midst of Casey, Levinas and Kuzminski and have a few books kicking around from the library.

amazing, I had a copy of 'human posture' for many years...there was something fascinating about it - but i could never really get to the bottom or end of it. Curious to see what you think

diff and subj sounds interesting. I was going to use the title 'primacy of relations' for my naive thesis

It is amazing that you would have found Schumacher's book too. I'm pleased as punch about having this in common, but am in no hurry to read it. Well, you know, not much of a hurry. Jacky's book (Field Guide to Melancholy) finally arrived from Amazon. It looks really good: beautiful, pensive and erudite as I expected.

I'm forcing myself to read the druid and this time through I'm acutely aware of applying force. Oh well. Good thing I read several books at once.

Are you feeling like a Kiwi yet? Yeah, I haven't posted about Jacky's book. I may have mentioned it in comments here or elsewhere but it seems not to you. To be honest I'm feeling kind of so-so about some of the books I've picked up recently, but Jacky's really excites me. I should be able to say that about everything I read. Well, I have moods. There's something to be said for being in a mood for a book, even if I stretch reading it out over many days.
