I read "Shop Class as Soulcraft An inquiry into the value of work" by Matthew Crawford. Great description of the work place at present and reflection upon recent work place experiences and opportunities of previous generations. The text raises many thoughtful questions on what intrinsic and extrinsic value our work will have in the future.
I have been reading Maine Student Book Award books like crazy this summer. Too many to list here. You will have to come and see me in the library this year to see which ones I couldn't put down!!
