What I’ve read this week

I’ve read a lot this week. An insane amount, and a lot of different things as well.

Here’s a list (not complete yet because I haven’t finished the week):

On Monday: 

  •  The Plant that Ate Dirty Socks

On Tuesday:

  • The Greatest Salesman in the World
  • Sidney’s Defense of Poesie
  • A lot of Sidney’s poems from the Norton Anthology of Poetry, pages 208-220

On Wednesday:

  • Descartes’ Meditations, 1st and 2nd
  • Three articles that you don’t care about that were on the mind and language
  • Two Etgar Keret stories (both were quite short, don’t recommend them)
  • Walt Witman’s “Song of Myself,” which is a very, very long poem (52 parts, and some parts are multiple pages)

 On Thursday: 

  • The Indian in the Cupboard
  • Wordsworth’s Preface for the Lyrical Ballads
  • All Wordworth’s poems in the Norton, except “The Ruined Cottage,” which consisted of pages 763-767 and 801-805

Add in to that blogs, newspaper, and other random other readings and I am a quite well read person today.

And why do you need to know all this? Honestly, I think that list is quite impressive (humility! I must remember humility!). It’s almost all of what I’ve been doing this week–that and class. So it’s worth mentioning.

  1. You are so lucky… I have [like] no time to read anything (just before school started, I vowed I would read several hours a day, and maybe a book a day (few times a week). But I’m not even finished with the book I started right before school… and the first week of it is over.
