So, what books are you currently reading? The break brought a number of books to my nightstand. I've got a habit of starting one and leaving it for a while, as another one grabs my attention. Here are a few recently completed or with active bookmarks.
Absurdistan, by Gary Shteyngart. Comic novel about post-Soviet Russia, New York, and love.
The Worst Hard Time, by Timothy Egan. Epic history of the Dust Bowl in the United States during the 30's. Our country has a long history of environmental disasters, and this was probably the worst, so far.
Not many posts recently, probably because I've been focused elsewhere with an overloaded schedule, multiple demands on my limited resources, etc. But, here are a few links on the Open Course Movement, including the Open Course Library project, that are worth saving..
Some may think that I am overemphasizing grammar, spelling, and punctuation, that is, the basic elements of writing, in my assessment of your discussion board posts. I don't think that I can overemphasize how important writing is. Writing is how you will communicate with your employer, with your customers, with your peers. Good, clear writing requires good, clear thinking and attention to detail. Your writing will be one of the key elements that defines you in the marketplace for jobs, promotions, and other opportunities.
But, don't take my word for it. Watch this video from Tom Peters....
