I'm done with the Fromm books, all finished.
Still reading Robert Bloch's collection of stories, it has an out of date charm I like, and What I believe by Hans Kung, which is excellent, just need to ration it or I'd be finished it in one reading.It is a luxury to be understood - Ralph Waldo Emerson

You might (or not...) want to read Tales from Earthsea and The Other Wind, which follow Tehanu. It didn't turn out to be the last book. To me, they sort of balanced out between the first trilogy and Tehanu. They reflect the views put forth in Tehanu but relate more to the earlier books, I think. Then again, if you're not into iconoclasm you might have a hard time with some of the stuff in those two books as well. I thought they were beautiful, although I still return with most pleasure to the first three books.
I'm generally not into rewriting of the worldview of my treasured childhood memories. But Le Guin does what she does so well that I at least have to pay attention.Female

I went to the library recently and got:
The Watkins Astrology Handbook - I know quite a bit about astrology but not in-depth so i hoped this book would help with the houses, aspects and modes etc.
Almost finished Blink by Malcolm Gladwell which is a very interesting read.
Then onto Dreamwork: Using your dreams as a way to self-discovery and personal development.
Then onto Pagan Paths: A guide to Wicca, Druidry, Asatru, Shamanism and other Pagan Practices
Then books on Hinduism and Buddhism.“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

Thanks @Qlip for the recommendation! I'm not very far into it yet, but I love that there's a Minneapolis connection!
