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.

2007-03-27 0807407267 Aleph Isn't Tough: An Introduction to Hebrew for Adults, Book 1 Motzkin, Linda HEB101
  This is the first book for the Hebrew class I'm taking. It focuses on teaching us the Hebrew alefbet, but instead of doing it in order of the alefbet (Alef, Bet, Gimmel, ...), it does so by groups of sounds, for example, starting with Bet, Shin, Tav for consonants and Patach and Kamatz for vowels. The book also includes some basic Hebrew roots and vocabulary words. The back of the book has nice reference charts listing all the letters in typeface, block writing and script (cursive) writing. We're using another book later in the quarter to learn some conversational phrases in modern Hebrew.
