Of Thee I Read: The United States in Literature In my hometown, Elgin, Neb., a hand-lettered sign along the highway that runs through the business district lists the names of the sons and daughters who have left to join the military. It is the town’s way of saying: We will keep you close in our hearts and will not forget you. Remembering those in uniform is as much a part of the Midwest culture today as it was during World War II, when the women around North Platte, Neb., started a canteen at the train depot and fed nearly six million soldiers who passed through on their way to the fighting in the Pacific or in Europe. The story is told by Bob Greene, in “Once Upon a Town: The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen,” through the voices of the soldiers who were met there with homemade food, and through the women who donated their time, food and war rations to feed the troops. The stop at North Platte, Mr.

Want to Work in 18 Miles of Books? First, the Quiz - The New York Times In recent years, much has changed at the Strand. The motto went from “8 miles of books” to “18 miles of books” after an expansion and remodeling in 2005. The store added miles of merchandise, too, from a Strand-branded hat line to Moleskine notebooks and Pocky snack sticks. Perhaps most significantly, for broiling employees, the place finally got central air-conditioning, also in 2005. (“I hated it,” said Mr. Bass.)

It’s been an incredible resource, but now, it’s time for an update. Some services have moved on, others have been created, and we’ve found some new discoveries, too. Many of our original 100 are still going strong, but we’ve updated where necessary and added some of our new favorites, too. The Dooyeweerd Centre for Christian Philosophy - Home The Dooyeweerd Centre for Christian Philosophy is committed to making available in English the works of Dutch Christian philosopher, Herman Dooyeweerd (1894-1977), and through this to promote philosophical work shaped by Christian beliefs. “Herman Dooyeweerd is undoubtedly the most formidable Dutch philosopher of the 20th century....As a humanist, I have always looked at ‘my own tradition’ in search for similar examples. They simply don’t exist. Of course, humanists, too, wrote important books, but in the case of Herman Dooyeweerd we are justified in speaking about a philosopher of international repute.” Dr.
A Bibliophile's Defense of Physical Books The committed bibliophile is cousin to the obsessive, an easily seduced accumulator frequently struck with frisson. Cram your home with books, and you’re lovingly called a collector; cram it with old newspapers, and you’re derisively called a hoarder. But be honest: The collector is a hoarder, too—a discriminating and noble-minded hoarder, perhaps, but a hoarder just the same. Not long into George Gissing’s 1903 novel The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, you find a scene that no self-respecting bibliophile can fail to forget. In a small bookshop in London, the eponymous narrator spots an eight-volume first edition of Edward Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
Speaker for the Dead (Ender Wiggin Series #2) by Orson Scott Card, Doherty, Tom Associates, LLC Excellent follow-up to Ender's Game! Orson Scott Card's Speaker for the Dead is quite a different story from Ender's Game, but it's a great one. The setting is new, the characters are mostly all new and Ender is 3,000 years older (sort of). Unlike the first book, my favorite parts of this book have almost nothing to do with Ender. Rather, I'm all about the aliens in this one. Much of this story takes place before Ender even arrives, which gives the reader a great chance to acclimate to the new surroundings.
