Books, Books, Books:

(required for classes)

New Stories from the South 2009 by Madison Smartt Bell (Editor)

+Which I have been flipping through (mostly to see the writer's bios) and reading parts of it whenever I get the chance. This book has replaced the copy of Jane Eyre that has been jammed into my purse for weeks now. Strangely enough, there is a story included that was penned by my former professor.

The Lie That Tells a Truth: A Guide to Writing Fiction by John Dufresne (Author)

+I haven't had a chance to go through this one yet, but I'm looking forward to it. It seems to have a lot of good advice and it was passed around by my former professor (see the link in the previous section) last semester. Interesting how things run in circles.

Philosophical Writing: An Introduction by A. P. Martinich (Author)

+I'm only going to think positive thoughts. Apparently there is a whole new "form" of writing that differs from strict MLA or AP Style...and I'm going to get to learn it this semester. What was I thinking? WAIT! Positive thoughts!

An Introduction to Feminist Philosophy by Alison Stone (Author)

+The cover reminds me of one of my favorite collections of short stories. The topic is obviously interesting. Maybe I'll be able to extend the paper I wrote last semester and make a better argument. See, I've already gotten a grade on said paper - but I still want to work on it. Nerd or grad school candidate or BOTH?

Okay, so that's the run down for two classes. I have two more books to purchase (for my last two classes). At least I'm up-to-date on some fronts.

I received my parking pass and special "priority lot" sticker in the mail yesterday & tuition is set to be pulled from my bank account tomorrow.

(It's time to break out the peanut butter & jelly and start making sandwiches!)
