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.

  This was an optional book for ENG385 last quarter and for ENG486 this quarter, but I didn't pick it either time. However, I learned in ENG486 this week that Chris Crutcher made a commitment to include a gay character in each of his books, which got me curious about this book. I read it this weekend, and sure enough, it not only has a gay character, but the protagonist also learns something important about gay people. That's not the main point of the book (a kid learning to control his anger is), but it's refreshing to see it woven into the plot.
