Adventures in Reading


Bookends: School Days

Did I ever get around to mentioning that classes started? I have another round of Spanish (and have been appreciating Out of the Blue’s posts on Spanish learning tools) and am also taking a course on writing center theory into practice. Both courses are keeping me quite busy, which unfortunately distracts me from reading. Every now and then I walk by my growing TBR stack (now with two new ARCs) and I cringe. I’m tempted to dismember it, but there are so many books on it that I want to read!

I’ve also started a second job, which was interesting (and rather amusing) because during the application process I had to sign a terrorist exclusion page to ensure my future employers that I am not a terrorist. So readers be assured that I checked “no” in all of the appropriate boxes and Adventures in Reading continues to be ran by a terrorist-free personage.

P.S. I am waiting with great anticipation for the 2008 Best American Short Stories edited by Salman Rushdie.
