Up and Coming Classics Challenge 2017

So Amy is doing this and I think I’m game. I’m not going to settle down exactly on what I’ll read this time, but I’ll write down some ideas here. 
General non-fiction:

  • What’s Going on in There?: How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life by Lise Eliot (2000)
  • The Living Page: Keeping Notebooks with Charlotte Mason by Laurie Bestvater (2013) 
  • A Touch of the Infinite: Studies in Music Appreciation with Charlotte Mason by Megan Elizabeth Hoyt (2016)
  • The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling by John Muir Laws (2016)
  • Some more Katy Bowman?  

History/biography:

  • Abigail Adams: Witness to a Revolution by Natalie S. Bober (1995)
  • John Adams by David McCullough (2001)
  • Those Who Love by Irving Stone (1965)
  • The Women of Genesis series by Orson Scott Card

Children’s fiction:

  • Brandon Sanderson is supposed to release The Aztlanian this year
  • Terry Pratchett has some Discworld books for younger readers (the Tiffany Aching books)
  • The Circle of Magic series by Debra Doyle, not Tamora Pierce (The Dilts family apparently loved these relatively unknown books in their childhoods, and I want to know if they’re really that good…  If I can find copies, that is.)

General fiction:

  • The Work and the Glory series by Gerald N. Lund (1990-1998): LDS historical fiction
  • Brandon Sanderson’s Oathbringer is supposed to release in 2017!
  • I plan to read Isaac Asimov’s Empire, Foundation and Robot series. The later books in the series are recent enough to count! 
  • Maybe the Dune series by Frank Herbert.
  • I still have more books to read in the Enderverse by Orson Scott Card
  • Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
