Book List for Spring Quarter

Here are the books we'll be reading for Spring quarter. They are listed in the order we'll be reading them. The Living is fairly long, so if you want something to begin reading over spring break, that would be a good choice. We'll be reading Steps to an Ecology of Mind and Wendell Berry's poems in small chunks spread over the quarter.
