Went to the bookstore yesterday to gather all the texts for the Fall class: Problems in Adolescent Literature. I always have good intentions of getting things online or from the used bookstore (because the campus bookstore is a just big slew of academic money rapists), but it never seems to work out that way. I, like so many others, am had by convenience and location, location, location.
Whatever. I still got a bunch of books.
The reading list for Fall:
The Book Thief (Zusak) - already owned
Disturbing the Universe (Trites) - already owned, already read
The Giver (Lowry) - already owned, already read
Planet of Junior Brown (Hamilton)
Shadows of Ghaddames (Stolz)
Song of the Magdalene (Napoli) - already owned
Welcome to the Ark (Tolan)
For fun, because I didn't take the August mini over comics:
The complete Watchmen collection (Moore)
Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth (author slips my mind)
A Robert Crumb collection
In other bookish news:
Nicky had the fantabulous idea to start an Estella's Revenge book club. Lemme know if you're interested, think it's a good idea or whatnot! I'm EXCITED about the prospects!
