Death On Wheels, edited by Peter Haining.

Anthology of short horror stories involving automobiles. So far so good.

Democracy and Education by John Dewey

I, however, prefer Maria Montessori over John Dewey. I believe Dewey ruined education.

I recommend The Plague as well. ^


I'm reading Shelley's "Epipsychidion".

I found Camus' work, The Myth of Sysiphus, very interesting as he tried to tackle the ultimate philosophical topic most philosophers would likely fear addressing. He helped inspire Walker Percy and his work, Lost in the Cosmos, which I found more influential since it got politically incorrect just to prove a point. It was a philosophy book for folks.

I recently stumbled across a couple of Sherlock Holmes collections of short stories on Project Gutenberg that I have never read. So I started one of them last night, His Last Bow.

"The Rebel" is not a work of fiction but a "book-length essay by Albert Camus, which treats both the metaphysical and the historical development of rebellion and revolution in societies, especially Western Europe. " (Wikipedia)
I prefer his novels by far, but I like The Rebel as well.

Just dropped off the last two books at the library and picked up the 'hold', which I will start reading later today: "The Framed Women of Ardmore House" by Brandy Schillace.

Description by Publishers Weekly:

Quote:
An autistic book editor stumbles into a murder mystery while attempting to claim her inheritance in this wonderful series launch from historian Schillace (Mr. Humble & Dr. Butcher). After her mother dies, Josephine “Jo” Jones heads from New York City to England to take possession of her family’s long-abandoned country estate. Following a divorce and a devastating job loss, Jo plans to restore the property and start a new life. When she arrives, however, she finds caretaker Sid Randles dead in his cottage on the property. A short time later, she discovers a strange portrait of a woman who resembles one of her ancestors hidden in the main house’s attic that subsequently goes missing. She reports both incidents to the local authorities, but they’re skeptical of Jo’s outsider status and insensitive to her autism. Teaming up with new friends, including an antiques dealer and an innkeeper’s wife whom she meets in town, Jo sets out to clear her name, and find the killer and the thief before they strike again. Schillace, who’s autistic herself, draws a marvelously believable heroine in Jo, and sets her up with an expertly constructed mystery.
