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.

  Although this book was published in 1978, long before German reunification (and put together in 1976, using what were then state of the art computers and a custom program in order to compile all the glossary entries, a tedious process that Dr. Hye described for us), understanding World War II and the Cold War period is crucial for understanding how Germany has developed into the nation it is today. Each text is in the original German but is introduced in English, and the many footnoted glossary entries make reading easier for those with a fairly limited German vocabulary.
