To do this I spend many hours going over Curriculum Vitae's and doing citation analysis for them and their departments. It isn't as much fun as working with the students in the Teacher Ed program but it isn't as exhausting either. Thanks for the explanations, Benita. That's a quite different library from the one I work in. We have basically economics and sociological subjects, and the Swiss Economic Archives.
So we are a mixture of library and archive. We do also have material which is used in the department's curricula. But that's a very small part. I thought this title looked familiar. I'm waiting for it in English translation from the library. Though, the covers show different aspects of the plot: The German cover shows two members of the family sitting at a red empty table in front of a bleak red wall. I just read this one as well and came to your thread to see how you liked it. I really liked the slow reveal of the family's dysfunction.
Hej Kerry, it really starts off as a normal family meal preparation, everything OK. But the end seems almost like trying to get back to some normality - life must go on, almost as usual. A devotional book with a daily spiritual input. I got that as a Christmas present in from my wife. When I was away and couldn't read the message for the day, I read on the next day. That's I 'my' year is just over now. Very good daily messages. Wishing you a most lovely weekend, Paul. Thank you, Diana and Barbara for the good wishes. A delightful detective story for teenagers. Ah, another great Ecke.
I really enjoyed their readings when I was a teeny. I've seen that paperback laying around and took it home. I like his books okay, not as much as liked it when I was younger. Jan 15, , The author compares drinking coffee with our lives: We like different kind of coffees black, espresso, cappuccino, decaffeinated, sweetened So, we accept each others tastes so we also should accept each others temperaments. We filter the coffee and take only the best out of it - so it should be with spiritual things: And there are a lot of anecdotes and quotes about coffee and community.
Kriminalroman by Jacques Berndorf. The Eifel is a rural, quiet part of Germany. Nothing ever happens there and then a money transport disappears - the drivers were not hurt, only bound on a tree, hanging in potato sacks - 18 Million D-Marks are missing. The journalist Siggi Baumeister starts to ask around, the Bundeskriminalamt is clueless and thinks about international terrorists, internation organized crime Ah, you hit me with a BB. My library has got several books of this serie.
Have you read some more? I also read Der Kurier which I didn't like much. How old are dinosaurs? The author shows that the facts do not support the evolutionary theory. There is too much guessing and believing. To take a certain fossil in sediments and then define this as 'index fossil' and somehow give that fossil a certain age is very superficial. Once the Quastenflosser coelacanth was an index fossil in sediments believed to be 60 Million years old - then such fishes were found alive in different parts of the world. So how old can such a sediment then be? All over the world we have reports about a total earth covering flood.
The Bible reports that over a year the whole earth was covered with water - so any calculation with half-life of elements is useless for measuring anything before the flood. Using this method one needs to believe that the atmosphere and other things were always the same since the beginning - a strong faith. See you are off to a flyer reading wise this year Paul and long may it continue as we both have pretty weighty TBR mountains to reduce. Have a great last part of your Sunday evening.
Hej Paul, pleased to see you in these parts of the world. I had some time reading last week and I did my best to reduce my TBR mountains, as you rightly observed. So, now I've got other things to do and my reading time is used for other things. I wish you a good use of your time. Some diamonds were stolen.

Thanks for visiting my thread. I have no idea why they changed the title on Christie's mystery: Der rote Kimono is showing up in the train in order to distract Hercule Poirot, maybe the German publisher wanted to stress that point.

Roman by Anne Cuneo - Es war wieder kalt geworden. Hej Charlotte, I like the older illustrations more than the new ones - maybe a nostalgic feeling because I remember from childhood Last year, somebody from the University of Basel scanned the whole work of Wackernagel's history.
