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.

Title Author
2004-01-27 0440940605 I am the Cheese Cormier, Robert ENG385
  A required book for ENG385, this, like most of the other books we read or discussed in class, was one I had not heard of beforehand. It's a tough read, even for an adult (Cormier said that he wrote it with an adult audience in mind), because of flashbacks, shifts in format, and ambiguity. Not that young adults shouldn't read it, but they might need some guidance (for example, a minilesson on flashbacks, to start with).
