    In our class today, many students voiced their interest in locating and using readings for our course that they are “more interested in” than those that have been assigned to date. Please post your suggestions here for readings that you are “more interested in” and that you believe other students in the class may also be “more interested in.”

    Destination : Morgue by James Ellroy

    American Tabloid by James Ellroy

    Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen J Dunber

    Scratch Beginnings by Adam Shepard

    All nonfiction but written in a modern style that pulls you in.

    Alexander,

    Thanks for these suggestions. Have you read all of these books? If not, perhaps you’d like to choose one for your Reading Journal. I will add these to the list of my recommended Reading Journal books. Could you also let me know if any excerpts from these books are available for free on the Web? If so, we can certainly consider integrating some into our reading list for the course.

    All best,

    Prof. Rodgers

    How about read writings from Obama, politicians or other famous people and examine how they write and structure their writings?

    The most interesting thing that i read is Daily Events like the newspaper and maybe write a Column for a article of a important event for the day or something that interests you,

    i like reading different selections from the canon of american literature such as the catcher in the rye, the great gatsby, death of a salesman etc. These books usually capture my interest and i find memorable.

    How about some books that we can relate to I don’t have any specific books to name but books that will encourage us to read.
