Cold Days: A Novel of the Dresden Files (Dresden Files) by Jim Butcher
Cold Days: A Novel of the Dresden Files (Dresden Files)

Caitlin Tolland, November 9, 2012

Oh Gosh, I hope this doesn't come off badly, but I'm sorry Dale, you're incorrect. This story is picking up where Ghost Story left off, which was Dresden finding his body being kept "alive" by Mab and he is now full-time Mab's knight. Enter: cold Days, in which Dresden will have to work hard to keep his version of morality whilst performing his duties as the Winter Knight.

Building Stories by Chris Ware
Building Stories

Caitlin Tolland, October 8, 2012

Chris Ware, if you haven't read any of his previous work, is a genius at bringing back the horrors of childhood and somehow transforming them into magic. He forces you to connect to discomfort and through his graphic art he makes seemingly inane things beautiful. The cities and lives he creates are absolutely worth the time you will invest. His work is something to think on; each panel presents something to take in and mull over.
I recommend his newest work, Building Stories, because it is time and energy well spent.

Cengage Advantage Books: Understanding Arguments: an Introduction To Informal Logic (8TH 10 - Old Edition) by Robert J. Fogelin
Cengage Advantage Books: Understanding Arguments: an Introduction To Informal Logic (8TH 10 - Old Edition)

Caitlin Tolland, September 17, 2012

If we can all agree on something, after all this arguing, it is this: Reasoning is important. This book will teach you how to do it well. Learn simple rules for thinking and common mistakes to avoid. Take a step back and think about the argument objectively; don't get lost in the same pitfalls you may have been prone to before. Learn how to identify, analyze and evaluate arguments made by other people, and learn how to build your own arguments.
If you have to argue, learn what is important, learn how to listen for mistakes, and be better within the moment.
