Books I am currently reading
I start teaching again tomorrow night from 6:30-9:30. What happened to summer? It's true I resent the fact that I spent somewhere around 24 years in a school system that trains us to believe in summer vacations, but I'm almost over that. But again, where did the summer go? Did it happen?
Anyway, I'm teaching for the University of St. Francis again, American Literature this time. So I will be spending all of my free time preparing for class (I suppose I should know the material as well....). The primary textbook is The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Shorter Version, Sixth Edition. And the desk copy they sent me is hardback. I've also assigned Kate Chopin's The Awakening & Other Stories (though I think I assigned a different edition that I can't seem to find at the moment), and the book that got me interested in Native American literature, N. Scott Momaday's Way to Rainy Mountain.
So don't be looking for any booklist updates for the rest of the semester. I'll be lucky if I can keep up with my own syllabus.
