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.

  A Single Man is the story of a man over a single day, from the moment he wakes up to his last moments of consciousness that night. Over the course of that day we're privy to all that man's thoughts and actions. Isherwood shows how much of our ordinary lives are based on acting and performing for one another, hiding our true thoughts and feelings, self-censoring in order to get along. It's amazing how well we get to know the protagonist of this book just from a day in his life. For me the book was also interesting as a snapshot of what life in Southern California in the early 60s was like, especially for gay men.
