Man, I've got another massive book list for this semester... Usually I can rent at least 50% of my needed books from the college's book rental office, but out of 17 needed books, I have to buy 13. BOO.

Oh well, I've been abusing amazon.com for most of my book buying needs XD. The book store that sells purchase books overcharge A LOT sometimes.

Here's my fun list of novel-type books that I've had to purchase, and will undoubtedly have to read and do lots of papers over this semester--

for my African-American Literature course:
[+] Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Jacobs
[+] Native Son by Wright
[+] Their Eyes Were Watching God by Hurston
[+] Street by Petry
[+] Invisible Man by Ellison
[+] Beloved by Morrison
[+] Three African-American Classics by Du Bois

for my Epic course:
[+] Iliad by Homer
[+] War and Peace by Tolstoy
[+] Epic of Gilgamesh by George
[+] War and the Iliad by Weil
[+] Ramayana by Menon

*flomps over* I feel sleepy just thinking about reading all of that in one semester ^^;.

I AM NOT THAT EXCITED ABOUT THIS UPCOMING SEMESTER.

I read a couple of those African-American literature books and some really short versions from your epic list (for my mythology class). Should be interesting... hopefully? XD;;

Which books did you read o.o? Is there any hope for me of enjoying myself ^^;?

The books have been good for the most part so far, but... it's just SO MUCH to read... I've been able to keep up so far, so hopefully I can keep it that way ^^;. I wish I could read faster... oh well, maybe this semester will help me with that, through practice XD;.

Native Son and Invisible Man. I liked the first a lot, I went through it like... whoa. XD The pace was very good for such a long book.

Ganbatte!

I've read... Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, all 3 stories in the Three African-American Classics, and am now reading Their Eyes were Watching God. Their Eyes were Watching God is definitely the best by far so far-- it's really interesting. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR WOMANHOOD! and such XD.

I think I'm becoming a feminist-- are you ashamed of me, Helen XD;?
