Laura has tagged me to reveal my bedside books. 🙂 We don’t have tables by our bed; it’s in the center of the room and bookcases line the walls around it. I snapped a candid shot of the books by my side of the bed where they land when I’m through reading for the evening, and then I sorted them out proper for your viewing. I didn’t bother to take a photo of the books lying on their sides on the closest bookcases that I’m also reading; they’ve been picked up and moved to the bookcase, so they haven’t been touched this week. All the books pictured have been.
To be fair, some of these books are being reread, rather than read for the first time.
Four of the books relate to the American Literature class I teach; the one in the bottom right corner, the two Joseph Campbell texts, and the Walt Whitman.
is a review copy I’ve already reviewed,
but that deserves more time and effort to more fully address some of the erroneous claims within.
Bats is fun reading (okay, for me it is). I love bats. Sigh. Almost more than chickens.
I’m going to confess that Plagues in World History is also for fun.
Unmasking the Face is a book by Ekman; it’s one I’m rereading. It’s worth the time and will really open up reading expressions and understanding when people are trying to mask their emotions by using an emotional expression that isn’t genuinely reflective of their emotions.
Is the Internet Changing the Way You Think? got here yesterday, so I just started it, as did Flim Flam by Randi.
There you have it, what I read before I fall asleep. 🙂
So, if I followed rules, I’d have to come up with ten bloggers to give this to, but Laura already gave it to many I’d have given it to.
Here’s some folks whose bedside reading I think would be interesting:
Emily from A Life Less Ordinary.
Liz from I Speak of Dreams.
Sullivan from LBRB.
Ken from Autism News Beat.
Rene from The Epi Times.
