“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • Bicycle Diaries. I like that we end up back in NYC at the end of this book, with some familiar groups like Transportation Alternatives.
    • Why people feel that driving a car makes one independent minded is a mystery to me.--I kept thinking about this this last week, cars and buses littered throughout the city...

  • Parable of the Talents

  • Bicycle Diaries
  • Reading the Romance. Radway's writing is always really inspirational to me, which I need today--got a deadline.

  • Questioning Library Neutrality
  • "A Troubled Tradition," by David Resnik, because a friend is interested in the problems therein. I am always intimidated by science. Always.
  • The Parable of the Sower

December 19-21, 2010

  • Trying to finish Blindness for Wednesday when it is due. I think I'll do it--it was a quick read, very visceral but really true and honest also. Which is strange to say about a book that is like The Road, but about blind people. Update: I did it!
  • Jenna's Lower East Side Librarian Winter Solstice Shout Out 2010/Lower East Side Librarian Reading Log 2010.
