I did make good on my previous post about independent bookstores, and visited Politics & Prose to get Christmas gifts for my brother and father (I visited Hole in the Wall Books but had no luck finding what I needed. An accompanying two-year old sans nap also made browsing difficult). I'll be heading to Second Story Books tomorrow, and would like to try to get to Capital Hill Books before we return to Chicago. A final store worth noting for those in the D.C. area, One More Page should be opening any day now. I ran across the new store by chance, and then found out that a family friend will be in charge of their acquisitions. Best of luck for this new venture during a tough climate for booksellers.
- The latest issue of Ecclesiastical Law Journal is out. I've been able to read the articles by Sagovsky and Leahy, both originally presentations from the Eleventh Colloquium of Anglican and Roman Catholic Canon Lawyers held this past April. I'd recommend both strongly as overviews of the relevance of law for current ecumenical matters. The content seems to be freely accessible for the moment, so download it while you can.
- Contents for the latest and forthcoming issues of Theological Studies have been posted. I haven't gotten to look at either one.
- Two questions: 1) Tricia and I recently got an ipod (hello, 21st century!) and I've been toying around with it. Is anyone aware of a good app for scanning books/documents? I've tried some free ones but they don't make very clear images. 2) Does anyone know where a full transcript of speeches from the PCPCU's 50th anniversary might be available? I'm especially interested in Kurt Koch's address (Rowan Williams' address can be found here).
