Every fall and spring semester (as a grad student), I’ll be taking an online class. This semester, the topic is “Writing as Art” and it kicked off two weeks ago. If the first few readings and discussions are telling of the rest of the semester, this is going to be a great class. Pictured above are my assigned books (plus one that I personally chose to purchase).
Scored some free books from the art museum the other day :]
I’ve always loved reading and as a grad student, I’m discovering the need to learn how to read more efficiently. The required reading for my online class usually isn’t lengthy, but it’s writing that I have to read more than once in order to understand. There are also lots of books that I’m trying to read on my own time so for now I’m treating them as reference books–books that I will read in parts rather than all the way through from beginning to end. I own most of these books so I’ll be able to write, underline, and highlight in them. I’ve already started reading most of these books, but I hope to complete them, along with a few others, before going back to Chicago next summer.
Tomorrow I’ll share some of the things that inspired me in August and September. Thanks for reading!
