I started school last week. College. Super scary stuff after being out of organized education for over 10 years. My kids are homeschooled, so we are pretty far away from a normalized classroom routine. After reading my syllabus for my first two classes, I thought I was going to puke. Actually puke, and I am not an anxious or fearful creature by nature. For fun, (because there must be some fun involved) I thought I’d post my reading list for this fall. It’s a pretty good one, but you might just feel a little tense in your stomach looking at it too.
Because you can’t see the titles, here’s a written list:
Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank
Doc Savage #14 by Kenneth Robeson
Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
From the Earth to the Moon and Round the Moon by Jules Verne
The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Volume One
The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction
The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
The Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram
Technical Communication by Markel
The Time Machine by H.G.Wells
The Urban Beastiary by Lyanda Lynn Haupt
Zoologies by Alison Hawthorne Deming
And a Science Fiction E-book that cost me $70 and $5.50 for shipping. Yes, they charged me shipping for an E-book. Thank you, college.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
