    [QUOTE=Badger;35649]The one by the Pope is The Spirit of the Liturgy, the reading of which is my Lenten discipline--don't ask me how it's going :(

    It never even occurred to me to read something like this, or any other spiritual reading, for Lent. Thank you Badger, I'll have to do this next time.

    So I might get to come to Seattle for a work trip and I'm totally planning a trip to the store if I do! Crossing my fingers that I'm on the list of people that get to go! :)

    Well, consider yourself PM'd, then!

    If we actually lived within driving distance of Seattle, we would be there!

    The other one is about religion in composition studies. It's called (I think) Negotiating Religious Faith in the Writing Classroom.

    Tell your better half to PM me sometime if she's on the forum. It's nice to hear of people who share my scholarly interests and have good taste in bags, because let me tell you: them's slim pickins (Indyracers not included, of course, but he never posts here so whatever).

    Katy, The Trivium is super interesting--it was written in 1937. By a nun. (Who was also a rhetorician.) It's been updated nicely for the contemporary reader, and makes a compelling case for the interconnection of grammar, logic, and rhetoric, which is just as urgent today as it was 75 years ago. Also: one day you will arrive at work to find me with my face pressed against the glass, corgis in tow, waiting for the warehouse to open. You've been warned!
    On my list now too. Badger you have wonderful books and if you recommend something - well 'nuff said!

    And if corgis are in tow - for those of us that may not be able to attend - expecting.... rather - demanding - plenty of photos!

    JK! I'd still totally let you in (Brian might not..).
    Katy & Badger, my better half went to St John's College of Maryland for her undergraduate degree, and has The Trivium & likes it. (Yes, she's the one who did the classical education & then went to CUA, I'm the Catholic one. Life works out that way!) I keep meaning to read it but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    You know, if all of us dog parents could make a collective pilgrimage to the Seattle store, that would be AWESOME.
    Of course, Rosalind hasn't flown yet, so I don't know how she'd do for that flight. But she's either going to have to get used to flying or invent teleportation.
    But I have this image of Riley & Ichiro sitting just inside the front doors, waiting to greet all the dog visitors! And then they could all run around and wag their happy tails and flop their ears and have fun.

    Badger, what are the titles of the other two books? I can see that one was written by the Pope & published by Ignatius, but I can't make out the title.

    The Freudian Slip is my favorite accessory. I wish there were one for the Synapse.
