  1. Book Suggestion:
    Mirroring People: The New Science of How We Connect With Others
    Iacoboni (2008)

    The table of contents look quite interesting from a psychological and biological perspective.

  2. I would like to donate a copy of two of my books to your library’s collections. One is called Sacred Space, a collection of poems. The other is called Night Blooms, a writer‘s journal addressing topics such as philosophy, religion,and literature. Could you advise me on how to do this? Libraries that already have my books include: Middlebury College, Cleveland Public Library, Oregon State,Wake Forest University, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Sydney, Nevada, Pacific, Northwest Vista College, Temple, Stanford, Virginia, Cambridge, Arizona, Columbia, Yale, Memphis,Baton Rouge Community College, North Dakota, New Mexico Tech, Pennsylvania, Baylor, and Oxford, among others.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely yours,

  3. Please acquire for the Library this new paperback, of great importance for research and teaching in cultural studies, literary theory, and philosophy (hermeneutics and phenomenology); it also contains translations of primary texts and extensive bibliographies. Thank you! The details are:
    Galin Tihanov (Ed.), Gustav Shpet’s Contribution to Philosophy and Cultural Theory, West Lafayette, IN: Purdue UP, 2009, ISBN 9781557535252 (pbk.)

  4. I know these books won’t raise the academic level of the library, however these would be nice to have as breaks from schoolwork in the fiction section.

    The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare:

    It currently includes “City of Bones”, “City of Ashes”, and “City of Glass”. In the future, it is planned to include “City of Fallen Angels” (2011), “City of Lost Souls” (2012), and “City of Heavenly Fire” (2013).

    Any of the books in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton. There are over 15 books but the first 5 are the best I think. http://www.laurellkhamilton.org/works.html

  5. I actually like what you submit here. Highly insightful and intelligent. One problem though. I’m running Opera with Debian and parts of your current structure pieces are a little wonky. I realize it’s not a regular set up. Yet it’s an issue to keep in mind. I hope that it will help and continue to keep up the top notch quality writing.

  6. Hello, I was watching the Sundance Channel last night and the TV show, Love/Lust. They were talking about “secret societies”. In particular they had on a guest by the name of Richard (Rick) Lundeen who is the author of a book called, Fraternity. The book is a fictional book but based on true events. It seems a very interesting book and a good study in group dynamics. I think a lot of patrons would find it interesting. I think this would be a good book to add into the library and would like to suggest it be added.

  9. Book:
    Radical Priorities: Revised 3rd Ed. (edited by C.P. Otero)
    By Noam Chomsky

    I was able to read a chapter of the book (‘The Relevance of Anarcho-Syndicalism’) for one of my classes and thought it was excellent. I think this book would be a great academic and intellectual addition to the library.

  10. My newest book, “Conscience of a Conspiracy Theorist,” was released by Algora Publishing in New York on 1/15/2011. Details are at algora (dot) com, also at robertlockwoodmills (dot) org.

    There are few books like “Conscience…” on library shelves, because it ventures where most publishers (and all media) are loath to go…into critical analysis of governmental misconduct. The book takes the mainstream media to task for abandoning its historical role as a watchdog for the public.

    I hope the library will consider adding the book to its collection.

    Kind regards, Bob Mills (Robert Lockwood Mills, author)

  12. Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
