On the Bookshelf XXXIV

The Planetary Omnibus by Warren Ellis & John Cassaday
Nearly halfway through this 850 page whopper and thoroughly enjoying myself. It’s a sci-fi romp with big ideas, an elaborate plot, a colorful cast, and some of the most beautiful artwork I’ve ever seen in a graphic novel. (Seriously. The artwork alone might be worth the price of the book.)

Second Opinion by Theodore Dalrymple
Subtitled “A Doctor’s Dispatches from the Inner City”, this collection of essays is sharp, eloquent, insightful, grim, and grimly funny. It doesn’t quite rise to the sheer and untrammeled excellence of Our Culture, What’s Left of It, but it’s Dalrymple, and Dalrymple is worth a read any day of the week.

Hamlet by Shakespeare
I’ve been intending to read this one for some time now, but Hanna at Book Geeks Anonymous recently gave it such a glowing review that I was compelled to delay no longer.

What’s on your bookshelf right now?

  1. Right now for me it’s the booklet “What is Justification by Faith Alone?” John Frame’s new History of Philosophy and Kaiser’s Tough Questions about God and His Actions in the Old Testament.

  2. I am not quite convinced that I want to read Shakespeare, though. ;)

    I’m reading, for one, Institutes of Biblical Law by Rushdoony. It’s a very Fat Book. But I’ve also inhaled a few Redwall books recently (why couldn’t Jaques have had a biblical worldview?), and I know I’m forgetting other stuff….
