What I'm reading *

I've always read. While growing up, reading was a refuge when I found life too unpleasant or stressful. Consequently I've bought a lot of books over time as well.

Now that I'm no longer in the rich corporate phase of my life I've rediscovered the library. Dayton's library may be maligned by some but is still a great resource. One type of book I like to read is gay fiction and I was surprised to see a lot of it in the Dayton library's catalog. Plus you can even ask them to buy particular titles, and they will!

Below you can see the five most recent books either that I'm reading or that I've acquired. You can search my books, or you can see all my books. Also my classes page has links back to this page for the books for each class.

Author: Brecht, Bertolt

Title Author
2004-09-14 3518400045 Bertolt Brecht, Werke, Band 4 Brecht, Bertolt GER403
  Wie ich hier erklärte, lesen wir nur zwei Szenen von "Furcht und Elend des dritten Reiches". Dieses Buch enthält die ursprüngliche Version auf Deutsch.
2004-09-14 1559701897 Fear and Misery of the Third Reich Brecht, Bertolt / Willett, John (trans.) GER403
  This volume also contains The Good Person of Szechwan and Mother Courage and Her Children, but it was for Fear and Misery of the Third Reich that I checked it out. We're reading two scenes from Furcht und Elend des dritten Reiches, "Die j?dische Frau" and "Der Spitzel," in my German class, and I figured it'd be good to have an English translation as well. I don't know what Dr. Hye thinks about that, but my other German professor this quarter, Dr. Schellhammer, said that reading translations in addition to the original was a good way to be sure we got the full sense of the text.
2004-08-23 1559701900 Life of Galileo / The Resistible Rise of ARturo Ui / The Caucasian Chalk Circle Brecht, Bertolt (John Willett, trans. - Galileo) GER361
  As with Germany: A Winter's Tale this is the English translation of a work I'll be reading in German for class. This is three of Bertolt Brecht's plays; "Galileo" is the one for school.
