Chicago, IL USA: As a Writer, Author and 'America's Premier Eventologist,' there isn't anything I enjoy doing more than Reading and seeing what somebody else has to say. And with that thought in mind as I wrap up the Writing of:
SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature ™
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009
I did manage to read 10 great Books this year that perhaps you will find Time to read in The New Year ahead: 2010.
The charming Part about these Books is that they motivate you, as Leif Klingborg does yet another significant Part about Books in general, is that they do not need to be published during the Year thereof -- they can be as old as paper itself -- survivors (as We say) who have penned a vitally important Message as Charles Darwin's THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES has, having celebrated CD's 200TH Birthday this year - coinciding with Abe Lincoln's Birthday -- who also was born in '09 -- 1809, that is.
My, how time flies - and especially moreso if you're reading on local transportation commuting in a big city of readers as Chicago is.
With only a few hours left in 2009, it's still time to get copies of these Texts, which are:
The K Concept by Leif Klingborg, Leader of Leaders
The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin (segments are online)
Owls by Gail Gibbons
A Forest Journey by John Perlin
Dead Snails Leave No Trails by Loren Nancarrow and Janet Hogan Taylor
How To Write A Screenplay by Mark Evan Schwartz
The Business of Screenwriting by Ron Suppa, Esq.
Migrating Animals by Etta Kaner and Pat Stephens
Drawing from Nature by Jim Arnosky
Animals in Summer by Jane R. McCauley
The Birthday Book published by Natalis Press, Inc. 1993
And in closing KOOPERSMITHin (The Blog) for 2009 with 176 entries (up 47 from 129 penned last year), with the amount of WAB: Writers, Authors & Bloggers OUT THERE who need to be read, you and your family and friends always find something worth reading.
