I’m two days from the end of the semester and am already looking ahead to the books of summer. My daughter’s preschool actually continues through the short term, which I am not taking, meaning I will have three hours a day to MYSELF for about a month. I’m feeling lightheaded just thinking about it.
This lightheadedness might also explain the boldness of my summer reading/learning expectations. Here they are in order:
1. Rosetta Stone French. An hour a day. We bought it, I should learn it.
2. Bonhoeffer’s Ethics
3. J. Kameron Carter’s Race: A Theological Account
4. Timothy Jackson’s The Priority of Love
Three books and a language, right? Seems manageable. Except that I also have field ed this summer. Plus a lot of travel and returning to my role as primary caregiver to our increasingly irritable two-year old. And I should probably give the old GRE another crack. We’ll see how far I get.
For those of you still toiling through another month of class/papers/finals, what are you dreaming about reading this summer?
